Diary of a Garden Dreamer

Florence is all around you

The garden of blooming ideas

Paths that lead everywhere, in the fantasy

Each corner has a story to tell

Here every stone, plant or bush has its own voice

EdV Garden

A Garden with a view

Colorful and cheerful, EdV Garden extends along the gentle slopes of a hill dotted with ancient walls, narrow streets and footpaths and with a view of the city that is as mind-blowing as it is beautiful. It is also a playful space where one can relax and enter more deeply into the natural world.
EdV Garden gets its name from the three initials of the creator’s family name: Esclapon de Villeneuve. Everything started as a game almost twenty years ago, when Alice’s daughter was born, with the objective of creating a special corner of the world for her to play in and familiarize with nature.

Everything started as a game almost twenty years ago, when Alice’s daughter was born, with the objective of creating a special corner of the world for her to play in and familiarize with nature.
After a long creative process, the installations that made this small corner of the world come to life are now ready to be shown to everybody.
It’s not easy to visualize the creative mind behind this project. Is she an artist? A green thumb? A visionary? Is it even relevant? Probably not, because the concept behind EdV is to give life to a setting where objects, plants and flowers can have a voice of their own.

THE ARTIST

“I nurture the idea that the emotion provoked by a garden
is gentle, faintlike a butterfly flapping its wings.”
Alice
