THE RISING ROSE MUSEUM ©
The Museo Della Rosa Nascente is located in this magical place, where dog roses and wild orchids have lived since the age of the fairies. Here began a new journey that takes us into the fascinating world of roses. The Museum of the Rising Rose is physically all in the park of the Castle and at the moment it has 17 rose gardens, and it also includes the rose gardens present in the courtyard of honor within the medieval walls. The installation of the last 7 rose gardens which are located in the Magic Labyrinth of the Museum has recently been completed, right where a small valley widens upstream of the Vezzeno valley. Here the gaze is lost among the pioneer forest, the wildflowers and the endpapers of roses which, with languages of different colors, conquer the wild nature of the gorges and open their corollas to the first dew and to the rays of the sun, which close to 13 ° rose garden bring the temperature 7 degrees higher than that found inside the crenellated walls, which as the crow flies are just over 700 meters away. In the park of the farm, near the rose pavilion on the acacia roundabout, there is a wooden gate that leads to an area crossed by a white gravel path, which descends almost to the stream, bordered to the right and left of the wild meadow , where spontaneous dog roses and wild orchids live and bloom. Here 200 roses have been planted, including varieties of tea roses and floribunda, and here, through the wonderful language of roses, we will be able to investigate the mysteries of which this flower has always been a messenger.
The Magic Path winds its way down the valley like a labyrinth made up of spontaneous plants that have found their ideal climate there. These are hornbeams, sanguinelle, white privets, oaks, maritime pines, ash trees, hawthorns, cherry trees, wild blackthorns, jasmine, viburnums, dog roses and imperial maples.
The rose gardens were planted with complementary plants in shape and colors: iberis sempervirens, licorice, savory, lavender, peonies, buddleie. The rose, a plant with enchanting flowers with a soul, which like a human being are born with shapes and colors that mature and even change intensity and shades during the 10 days of life. There are 5-petal roses and 100-petal roses, there are musk roses and roses with thorns 3 cm long. There are roses with sepals as large as petals, a fleshy stem and leathery leaves and with the flower that can reach 18 cm in diameter in the period of maximum flowering and wonderful roses, timid, with very thin and very long stems, which make scrolls. large and delicate in search of the ray of sunshine and whose flower reaches a maximum of 4 cm in diameter, surrounded by deep green sepals and with thin thorns.
There are roses with a very long bud and 15 candy pink petals, which smell of lemon and others with a female complexion color that have the intense scent of peach or tea.
The queen of all is Alba Maxima, with an apricot-tinged whiteness and an intense and spicy scent: it is the oldest rose, which has been brought to our days even from the Middle Ages! It blooms only in May and June, with a very long flowering, and then it makes us sigh until the following year, because it no longer gives us even a flower…!
The Museum was created by the will of Rita Gibelli who, always in love with this magnificent flower, decided to create a path of alchemical meaning, which accompanies every single person to the discovery of inner perfection through the evolution of colors, scents, lights and symbols . The garden currently has 1200 rose plants with over 125 varieties, and winds through the delightful coast of olive trees, the Vezzeno Gorges and the avenues that lead to the shady medieval walls of the Castle
