This app takes you on a tour of the ‘Giardino’ (Garden) which surrounds the Villino Volterra in Ariccia, near Rome, a garden created at the beginning of 20th century.

The statue that dominates the garden from above, known as “The Lady of the winds”, introduces the history of the Villino and of the Park with its eight areas. The different but complementary areas in which it is divided, amplify the concept of space and make the garden look much larger than it is in reality.

Thanks to the interactive map and to the list of plant species connected to it, you will discover the common and scientific names of all the plants housed there. For sixty of them you will also find a detailed description which shows the main features and some interesting anecdotes.

From the data sheet, you can go to the photographic gallery and find out which other beds in the garden host the same plant. Pleasantly ‘browsing’ in a magical, intimate, harmonious, simple and discreet but at the same time lively atmosphere, really full of surprises… you will lose yourself in the maze of Boxwood!

The app is available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

GARDEN MODELER

Much more than just another app: it’s a project, dedicated to the mobile world!

Garden Modeler” is a powerful and flexible engine designed for modeling parks and botanical gardens. With “Garden Modeler” it is possible to capture the garden’s structure, make an abstract representation of its components (zones, flower beds), depict them on an interactive map, build a catalog of the botanical species and describe each species by means of textual contents and full resolution photos.

Garden Modeler” makes it very easy to realize a customized, low-cost app in order to provide visitors with a tool capable of driving them during the exploration of the garden: both an enjoyable and instructive experience at the same time.

Garden Modeler” can be adapted to the context of museums, temporary exhibitions, scientific, cultural or technological sites.

The multilingual engine is currently available for iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad) devices, but we are considering to implement it under Android and Windows 8.
