Landscape design outside the box for Impavida, a creative craft brewery in Arco (Trentino, northern Italy). Shoots of hop (Humulus lupulus) and of Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) climb the architectures during summertime. Studied specimens of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) welcome the guests – a design choice to recall the rock walls enclosing the valley. The property boundaries are lined with fragrant Jasminum and tall cypress trees to let imagination run to the nearby Lake Garda. Enough? Not yet: Mediterranean aromatic shrubs and fruit trees surround the outdoor tables: a prodigy made possible by the mild climate of the area. Proportions and textures of the foliage integrate with the former industrial building, a recovery project by the Milan-based firm Genuizzi Banal. Appropriate selection and layout of species thriving in the same conditions help to reduce irrigation needs: a standard of Valerio Cozzi landscape design that here meets the philosophy of the Company on sustainable and circular economy.
