ROMANTICA 2014 WITH OZ EXPORT
For the first time this year OZ Export is proud supplier of the florist festival Romantica 2014. We will see Europe’s finest florists work with several exclusive flower varieties directly from a number of Grower Direct partners.
Bugnara is a comune and village of 1,193 people in the Province of L’Aquila in the Abruzzo region of Italy, around 150 kms east of Rome. It is said to be one of the most beautiful villages in Italy with particular strong artistic and historical interest.
This small setting is the quite unexpected location for one of Europe’s biggest and most reputable florist competitions, the International Florist Festival of Bugnara, a.k.a. ‘Romantica’. From the 31st of July until the 3rd of August already the 9th edition is being held. The organization is with the European Athenaeum of Floral Art who is also the jury in a contest amongst the best florists from a dozen countries like Italy, the Netherlands, Russia and Spain.
In close cooperation with our partner growers we have made an great selection of quality flowers and exclusive novelties. The florists will surprise you with their works of art, but they will also be surprised with the cream of the crop of floriculture.
MORE THAN 20,000 VISITORS
The competitors will have to show every creativity they possess to win the competition built around this year’s theme ‘Italian Dream’. More than twenty thousand visitors will attend the spectacle and witness the full splendour of flower arrangements, made by Europe’s best florists. The town of Bugnara will look like a very busy garden of Eden for a couple of days.
The final winner will have to compete in four stages:
– Making two ‘cake flower’ designs with oasis cake shapes
– Decorating places throughout Bugnara inspired by the ‘dream summer’ theme
– Making an ‘Italian Fashion’ flower dress
– The final with the three best teams
Especially the grand final will be thrilling, since there is no other rule than to construct something bedazzling based on the theme ‘Italian Dream’. The winner will receive the trophy called ABSOLUTE of FLORAL DESIGN AWARDS.
OZ Export and our partner growers wish all the florists lots of luck and inspiration with the provided flowers.Back to overview
