The greenhouse

The Garden of Evolution. The history of life on earth from the first organic molecule to the present day.

History dive

In our spectacular greenhouse 12 meters high and 1000 square meters, the evolution of the plant kingdom explodes. Here you can find:

  • The Ferns, the first plants with leaves that do not have the flower and reproduce through spores
  • Conifers, belonging to the Gymnosperms family: from the Greek "naked seed" plant as it does not have a flower. Among the present also the Auracaria, very rare and protected by international conventions. Uan form of evergreen with leaves of ovate to thorny tip. This particular aspect allows to limit water losses and face hostile climates
  • Ginkgo Biloba, the only surviving species of a group of very ancient plants, from whose roots active ingredients used in herbal medicine and medicine are extracted
  • The Angiosperms, a structure that encloses and protects the seeds: the flower. Today they are the most widespread plants on Earth, among the most primitive genera palms and magnolias. There are many species of palm trees, different in shape and height. The leaves can be fan-shaped or pinnate. The magnolias instead belong to one of the oldest families of Angiosperms: the essence extracted from their flowers is still among the most used in cosmetics.
