Cosa fare a Milano - What to do

Orticola 2021, Milan is transformed into an enchanting colorful garden

From 16 to 19 September Orticola returns to Milan, the flagship event of the Milanese autumn dedicated to plants and flowers, at the Indro Montanelli Gardens.

The new edition

The edition of September aims to resume the dialogue between specialized nurseries and the public of plant and garden enthusiasts, after a year of interruption due to the health emergency. The nurserymen and their productions are once again the heart of the event: comparison, dialogue, the opportunity to exchange views and opinions is one of the main characteristics of the Horticultural Spettacolo.

A ' edition in which plants will be the protagonists, with a particularly interesting exhibition and where visitors can discover, admire and immerse themselves in plants, flowers, scents and colors typical of this particular period of the year. For the first time you can find herbaceous plants that in May would still have been too small or other plants that give their best at the end of the hottest and brightest season, so new blooms, simple or showy, but always colorful, and sometimes long enough to last until the first frosts.

The workshops (also) for children

Always considered a “plus” of Orticola, free moments of meeting for adults and children this year are organized, thanks to the contribution and support of CityLIfe, historical partner who wanted to share with Orticola the passion for greenery and the desire to promote knowledge of gardening. The courses are held in the two course areas available inside the Indro Montanelli Public Gardens (CityLIfe Dugnani Courses Area in the courtyard of Palazzo Dugnani and CityLife Giardini Courses Area at the partner's stand) and on the exhibitors' stands.

The calendar includes about 40 horticultural workshops, meetings with experts, demonstrations of floral and pictorial decoration and book presentations, in addition to those dedicated to children, in particular “Citizens with wings” at the CityLIfe Dugnani Courses Area on Sunday at 10.30 and the Kikolle Lab space which will host 20 floral, artistic and DIY workshops, for children aged 3 to 10.


Tickets can be purchased on the dedicated website.

Only on Friday 17 in the morning, the workshops are also open for children aged 12 to 36 months accompanied by an adult
