In the Name of the Rose


The garden Vacunae Rosae at the Tenuta La Tacita is a 2-hectare themed garden that houses over 5,000 different varieties of roses, designed as a spiral elevation path through the queen of flowers and evocative watergames of the 9 symbolic fountains .
The rose garden is divided into over 130 areas and extends over seven terraces with different thematic routes, a historic, cultural and artistic trip to the world of rose. In each sector there is a group of homogeneous roses for botanical development (families), for history, geography, colors and scents, and other curiosities as their names.
The areas are defined by the real and virtual crosses between three architectural vectors: the ground digression, the water course, the main access path.
The garden is ''marked'' longitudinally and crossed by lines that ideally connect the 9 symbolic fountains and the resting points, forming a complex pattern.
The fence that protect the garden are part of background scenery. On them different types of roses are climbing. Above all the walls of the terraces are lines of climbing roses with a chromatic digression of approx. 800 meters.
On the outside of the garden there is a circuit of trees sacred the rose: tamarix, pomegranate and almond.
The rose garden could also be called of ''The 5 Senses'': the scents of the roses (the smell), the velvet petal (the touch), the flow of water (the sound), the colors of the roses (the view) and the taste to be experienced at the nearby restaurant at La Tacita.

The name evokes Triskelis, the celtic Trischele symbol, steeped in mythology and ancient meanings. This figure, composed of three spirals intertwined, symbolizes the cyclical nature of life. The eternal motion whom everything is subjected pushes us toward the relentless pursuit of our identity, with the objective to improve ourselves every day. In the respect of the cycle of nature some commodities are produced directly on-site in a natural way, as the fine olive oil.
