- Exotic Garden
The idea of the garden takeaway is combined with that of the exotic garden, where cultural diversity can merge with the diversity culture. A meeting place of cultures among the various crops. It's so that we would like to combine the traditional local crops, in respect of organic farming and biodynamic vegetable varieties with other parts of the world.
- Natural Trails sport
We are making more accessible the farm roads with naturalistic engineering that uses natural materials for the consolidation of slopes and water regulation, and working on creating paths and nature trails with rest areas, seating and tables.

- The garden of 100 camellias
In 2013, 100 camellias from Lucca have been planted in one of the valleys of Tragliata, with the idea of creating a nature trail then be reconnected to other beautiful places of the property and with the desire to develop and enhance the appearance of landscape and nature company. This tells the desire of a small Roman gardener, Giulio De Fiore, to want to remember the story of a friendship with his friend and master of Lucca Dino Monti, with whom in 1992 he created a growing camellias in Matraia (Lucca) of 100 camellias which are part of Tragliata. The species present in Tragliata are two Camelliajaponica and Camelliasasanqua. The first, most popular and common, it blooms from late January until March. The second, called ‘invernali’, bloom between December and January, with the intense cold. Among the many present Japanese camellias are cultivars and historical varieties including ‘Rubra’, ‘Rubra Simplex’, ‘Alba’ e ‘Alba Simplex’, ‘Stella Polare’, ‘Roma Risorta’, ‘Bonomiana’, ‘Francesco Ferruccio’, ‘Tricolor’, ‘Bella Romana’. There are also varieties of new generation, a little more rustic, among these the ’Snow Ball’ and then the ‘Hagoromo’ between ‘Sasanqua’.
Like all lived gardens, camellias have reacted each in their own way. Now the dedication and work of the gardeners who care for them will allow the plants to acclimate, adapt and grow lush. For Informations: Giulio De Fiore – www.defiorepaesaggio.it – firstname.lastname@example.org
