Right now, each year after a month-long preparations, in the central part of Bulgaria takes place the Festival of Roses. It was first celebrated there in 1903, because still then in this area called the Roses Valley was produced the highest quality rose oil in the world, used by the sophisticated perfumers in France. It is composed of dozens of essential ingredients that are impossible to simulate chemically. Roses grown in Bulgaria are of a special variety (Rosa Damascena) and their price thorughout the centuries has been so high that the distilled oil has been referred to as “ the liquid gold”. Indispensable in perfumery and cosmetics, its price exceeds € 7,000 per liter. Over 4 tons of roses petals are needed to gain one liter of rose oil.
Spectacular World Fair in Milan
Over the past week Coppa della Maga participated in Tuttofood exhibition, taking place during the impressive EXPO Milano 2015. You can see some pictures from out visit, but we strongly recommend visiting it until 31 October.
Interpreting the subject of the Expo ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ each country examines its own position and offers solutions regarding the major challenges related to the future of food. It is hard to choose the best pavilion, but among our favorites were the one of the UN (a real museum of modern art, developed by prestigious international curators) and the Austrian one, which revolves around air as the main “food” for life – you actually enter a real forest with fresh air! The impressive sculptures and installations are a must see, while you stroll down the long alley and enjoy food and music from around the world. There is also an open air theatre with numerous performances taking place, restaurants serving top Italian food from various regions and many entertainment and educative happening. With 6 months of events and 145 participating countries the Expo is promising to be one of the most spectacular places in the world this year and not to be missed!
