The Emotional Garden

A place that reveals ancient symbolism and energy centres

Framing the Gualda Vecchia over an area of approximately 7,000 square metres is the Emotional Garden of Feather Paths – between Simplicity and Beauty. The idea is to create a place in which to lose oneself, between dynamic linearity and sinuous paths, in an extraordinary, timeless dimension. A dimension governed by the perfect karstic union between Love and Harmony. The Emotional Garden consists of: Labyrinthine Flowerbeds, sinuous lines of the Amphitheatre, the Realm of Fire, an Ornamental Vegetable Garden that leads through a path of ferns to the Water Square, up to the Parterre.

The Emotional Garden is a garden concept conceived after several years of study by arch. Caterina Angela Contu. A place that reveals ancient symbolism and energy centres, created through geometries and evocative settings represented by the fundamental elements of nature: water, earth, fire and air.

The realisation
The Feather Paths Emotional Garden is a living microcosm of biodiversity that has been repopulated by butterflies, bees and other insects that promote a delicate balance through their pollination work. The value of the emotional garden lies in passing on the ancient art of gardens, and creating places of biodiversity that are more easily adapted to climate change, increasing the resilience of the ecosystem around them.

The Garden is also Municipal House so weddings
can be celebrated there as well as artistic and cultural events, workshops, retreats, etc.
