The Rose Garden of Villa Reale was designed by the architects Francesco Clerici and Vittorio Faglia in an area already occupied by one of the formal gardens adjacent to the Archduke’s residence. It has a pond and charming walks among the exemplars of the collections. It is also host to the International Rose Competition, which offers a special prize for the most fragrant rose. The layout offers different thematic sections according to the rose collections planted. Certain old varieties are located around the pond, while climbing roses are found along the railings and on the pergola. Most of the space is dedicated, in any case, to the roses taking part in the annual Competitions. These are attended by over four thousand varieties, created by rose growers from all over the world. The jury includes international technical experts, poets, artists and fashion or television personalities.
