To a limited extent, this year, the fourth spring is back where Dove wisteria blooms, the Diverdeinverde Off initiative which is mapping the most seductive and spectacular wisteria blooms on the walls of villas and palaces, as long as they are visible from the street and accessible to all.
The map of wisteria in Bologna is now quite rich and detailed, while in the metropolitan area the reports are still limited to some locations.
The goal is to create a path of discovery of the wisteria blooms that brighten and scent our streets in early spring, making it available to everyone (this year only for those lucky enough to see them from the window: it is recommended to avoid walking and staying at home, following the rules in force).
The wisteria map is the result, made possible thanks to the reports of the many people who wanted and want to participate in this initiative that continues and expands, especially beyond the borders of the Municipality of Bologna.
The requirements for reporting, to be made by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org are that the plant is visible from the road and that there is an address with a house number.
Thanks to the map of wisteria, anyone who wishes it can, in the coming years, free from constraints, choose its fragrant path to travel independently on foot or by bicycle.
In the language of flowers, wisteria, in China and Japan, symbolizes friendship and availability, in the West also gratitude. These are feelings that we gladly approach Diverdeinverde, an event that also lives on the pleasant meeting of all three.
You can find some information on the plant in this sheet.
