22-25 April. The Primavera della Landriana, the annual garden fair and horticultural sale, takes place at the Landriana gardens south of Rome from 22-25 April, from 10.00-19.00.
The ten-hectare gardens were created in the 1950s by owner Marchesa Lavinia Taverna Gallarati Scotti with the help of Russell Page.
Now considered the most important postwar garden in Italy, Landriana contains 32 secret spaces and walks including one planted entirely with Mutabilis roses.
Driving from Rome, take Via Pontina or the coastal road to Ardea, or by train on the Rome-Nettuno line to Campo di Carne.
