Imagine a town with small streets made of stone and surrounded by two-story houses, just like a European fairy tale. There are lanterns on the walls illuminating at night. And during the day, streets are filled with flowers. That is Leverano! Leverano is a town and comune in the province of Lecce in south-east Italy. Floral designer and teacher Ivan Bergh
organizes the competition of Arteflorando there already for seven years.
Arteflorando in Leverano
This magical town is the home to an international floral contest every year called Arteflorando, where floral artists from many different countries come to test their creativity in front of a board of judges.
Even though the area is famous for producing wine, it is also the home to an annual international floral contest every year. This competition is where floral artists from many different countries come to enjoy the Italian Atmosphere and at the same time want to find out if they can be the first of many teams.

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
For this competition, I needed to think carefully about how to explain myself. Something old to show that you change through life, you look different at things, and they become more beautiful. And something new, the flowers light up every way of the road. And then something borrowed... The door and the table show what friends mean and how lucky you are to have them. And of course I needed something blue, this was a real gift because I only had the Equinops (blue glow) but then the blue VESPA arrived.”
Being in that magical city and witnessing all that creativity was a chance like no other, and we are very grateful. We want to thank you because thanks to you, in some way, you have helped us reach this dream. #NARANJOEMPOWERSFLORISTS with your help!
