Cristina Castel Branco, Julia Casaravilla, Álvaro de la Rosa and Javier Mariátegui in conversation with Sofía Barroso

The Importance of a Garden in our Lives

Venue: Jardín del Torreón de Lozoya (entrada por C/ Grabador Espinosa)

Four experts with hands-on know-how in garden design discuss the importance of these pockets of nature and beauty in our lives. They are: Cristina Castel Branco, the Portuguese expert in the historical gardens of her country and their relationship with mosaics. The Uruguayan settled in Spain Julia Casaravilla, museologist and owner and curator of the Romeral de San Marcos, the garden designed by her late husband and landscape artist Leandro Silva. Álvaro de la Rosa, who trained as a sculptor, understands the garden as a work of art and as a transitional space between two opposites, the interior space, framed by architecture, and the infinite exterior space of the landscape. And Javier Mariátegui, a landscape architect by family tradition and personal passion, with 30 years of experience designing and building gardens in Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria and France, whose designs are very versatiles with a range from the formal to the wildest, with landscape and water as the main subjects.

They will talk with Sofía Barroso, cultural manager and organizer of garden tours.
