The experimental orchard inaugurated by doctor Ghirardi in 1964, extends on a surface of about 10.000 square meters in Via Religione n 21, in Toscolano. Thanks to the warm climate of the Riviera, some interesting varieties of plants from South America, from China and from South Africa were introduced by doctor Ghirardi. In 1991 it was donated to the University of Studies in Milan and is actually managedby the biology department. There are a lot of plants of different origin, essentially chosen for their medical properties.
