The expert is the owner of the Malvarosa nursery, a collector specialized in the production of plants belonging to Pelargonium and Jasminum genera. The Sicilian company owns two important collections dedicated to these two species.

The meeting with Filippo Figuera will be on jasmine: diffusion, cultural value, cuisine, cosmetics. A path between the different species and varieties cultivated, from the most famous to the rarest and most unusual ones.
