Video in Italian | A journey through the collection of old roses in the Boboli Gardens

There are thousands of varieties of old roses in the world, and the Boboli Gardens preserve a vast range of them.
Colours, shapes and perfumes, which make May the ideal month to talk about them.
Today our attention focuses on old Banksiae Alba Plena, the first rose to be introduced from China in the West in 1807, which blooms very early in spring and is indeed the oldest of the whole Gardens.
