Flowers and garden dreams
A stroll between architecture, art and geraniums
The village is a rewarding topic of discussions.
At the regulars’ table, in the church square and at the local council. That was always the case when a miller extended his mill or a farmer his stables. Or when the head of the fire brigade had a picture of St. George painted on his house wall. Building and designing always goes hand in hand with change. It requires innovation and courage to develop – also in a village community. The ways of building and housing in a village say a lot about the life, daily routines and identity of a population. The village of Sesto has a turbulent history, with its development from a tormented battleground to a farmer’s village and an exclusive holiday destination. Here you can find stately family farms with thick stone walls and geranium-decorated balconies right next to modern hotel buildings. Buildings in the style of past decades stand next to modern buildings. Great architects have built and are building here, as diverse as the inhabitants and as varied as the history of the village. Look at it in more detail during your next walk through Sesto.
