A Flourishing Heritage - Portraits of Italian Flora
About this Exhibition
The exhibition in Italy is being organized by Floraviva, in collaboration with the Botanical Garden of Padua (Orto Botanico di Padova). Dating to 1545, it is the world’s oldest botanical garden still in its original location, and was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1997. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org. Floraviva’s website is: http://www.floraviva.org
The artist Anna Paoletto has captured this Sorbus beautifully, conveying its pinnate leaves at varying stages of growth and the glossy surface and red flushing of its fruits. Sorbus domestica is sometimes called “service tree”, and can be found throughout most of Europe and some of northwestern Africa.
