Fernando Caruncho, Umberto Pasti, Cristina Castel Branco and Julia Casaravilla in conversation with Sofía Barroso

The Importance of a Garden in our Lives

Venue: Jardín del Torreón de Lozoya

Four experts with hands-on know-how in garden design discuss the importance of these pockets of nature and beauty in our lives: namely, Fernando Caruncho, an internationally renowned Spanish landscape artist for whom geometry and light are the essence of his work, as exemplified by the gardens of the Palais Royal in Paris; Umberto Pasti, the Italian horticulture enthusiast who in Rohuna (Morocco) created a paradise with more than 1,200 species of native flora; Cristina Castel Branco, the Portuguese expert in the historical gardens of her country and their relationship with mosaics; and 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.

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


In case of rain, the event will take place at the same time inside the Torreón de Lozoya
