History
Already awarded the prize as Second Most Beautiful Park in Europe, and as Italy's most beautiful Park, the Sigurtà Garden Park is an extraordinary union of history extending over 600,000 square metres of woods and lawns.
It all began in 1941 thanks to the need for a horse-drawn carriage; when wartime petrol shortages led Carlo Sigurtà, a pharmaceutical industrialist, to make his way to Valeggio sul Mincio, a town well-known for its manufacturing of horse-drawn carriages. During his stay in the town that stands above the banks of the river Mincio, the businessman fell in love with a 60 hectares farm and decided, on impulse, to buy it. Thanks to the ancient water-drawing rights from the Mincio, Dr. Sigurtà, together with his nephew Enzo, over the years succeed in turning the land into a botanical treasury of incomparable beauty. Today Giuseppe and Magda Inga Sigurtà, the children of Enzo, continue with a passion to care for and preserve this natural place of beauty, making it known to visitors of every age. Among the numerous points of interest and wonderful seasonal flowerings that are not to be missed is Tulipanomania, the extraordinary bursting into flower of over a million tulips in the months of March and April. The display is accompanied by those of the hyacinths, muscari and narcissus that emblazon with colour the lawns of the Park, in one of the most world's greatest floral show. At the Park there are 40,000 woodland plants, 18 ornamental lakes, the famous Avenue of the Roses with its 30,000 flowering roses, and the Maze and its 1500 yew trees. Still more, visitors can marvel at the Great Oak, enjoy the 50 varieties of annuals that give colour to the Avenue of the Flowerbeds, view hundreds of multi-coloured water lilies, the Hermitage, and visit the Castelletto, where meetings hosted historically important scientists and Nobel prize winners such Gerhard Domagk Alexander Fleming, Selman A Waksman, Konrad Lorenz and Albert B. Sabin. Young visitors can particularly enjoy a trip to the Educational Farm in the Park's agricultural area: here they can see the turkeys, donkeys and chickens and take part in various kinds of classes and educational games. The Park can be visited on foot, by bicycle (with your own or renting from the Gardens), aboard the panoramic train, in the shuttle or in comfortable golf-carts.

Cocker Henry

Landscape Architect.

H. Cocker was one of the most famous landscape artists of the twentieth century. In Italy he designed in the thirties, together with the Scottish Captain Neil McEacharn, the vast landscaped park of Villa Taranto in Pallanza (Lago Maggiore). He is remembered for a number of other interventions, including the yard of the Municipality of Fossalta di Piave and some areas of the Park Sigurtà of Valeggio, in which he transfused the distinctly British flavor to a colorful landscaping with perennials and bulbs. H. Cocker left many articles and books.
