Les mécènes du Festival
Pour cette 3e édition, trois entreprises ont souhaité s’associer aux projets et aux valeurs du Festival des Jardins de la Côte d’Azur. Le Département des Alpes-Maritimes remercie ses mécènes pour leur implication et leur participation.
For nearly 2 decades Franck VIALE, General Manager of the Sainte Marguerite plant nursery, has been developing a unique concept combining the promotion of Mediterranean plants and rare and unique subjects.
Through his strategy of offering a selection of hundreds of thousand-year-old olive trees and century-old palm trees, he manages to meet the very selective needs of the most demanding connoisseurs.
The Sainte-Marguerite nursery represents 20,000 references, 30 000 m2 of land and 8000 m² of greenhouses, enough to satisfy a large clientele of enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals. As a key player and a committed nursery, “it is with pleasure and pride that we are involved in sponsoring the 2021 edition of the Côte d’Azur Gardens Festival”.
Attached to his convictions, Franck VIALE naturally took the opportunity to actively support the 17 landscaping creations by opening the doors of his nursery.
A story initiated in Grasse in 1926, when Eugène Fuchs opens a Fragonard perfumery in tribute to the famous painter from Grasse. From father to son and son to grandson, the Fuchs and Costa families develop the business. The factory of these days has now become a plant and extends to three different sites that remain open to the public, where visitors discover our secrets of perfume manufacturing, as well as the history of perfumery. In this family saga, come then the women of the family: Anne, Agnès and Françoise, who joined very young, their father at the management of the company to ensure the succession and lead the enterprise towards other horizons: fashion, art of living and gastronomy, exclusive gifts.
It is also a beautiful story about the flowers of Grasse and the art of living on the Côte d'Azur...
For more than 50 years, Fragonard Perfumery has been involved in promoting the Côte d'Azur, the Pays de Grasse and the perfume industry know-how.
It is quite naturally that Fragonard has been a partner of the Garden Festival since 2017 and will be again for the 2021 edition around the theme "Artists' Gardens".
