Murabilia - Mura in fiore is a trade exhibition dedicated to amateur and professional gardening. It started in 2001 and it is around the first week end of September to symbolise the “Settembre Lucchese” beginning and the gardening resumption after the summer heat and before the winter cold.
It's ideal site is the city walls where it is located among its bulwarks and the botanical Gardens.
Murabilia is a great attraction both for Lucca thanks to the ancient and strong amateur gardening traditions and to its beauty, its story and art. Murabila’s exhibitions, now inserted in “Settembre Lucchese” programme, are one of the most popular national events for those who love gardening.
The first edition was only a trade exhibition then pomology shows, bonsais, botanic illustrations, old printings and expert conventions were added.
Then there are collateral events like old fruit varieties degustation, tree climbing, creative laboratory, free guide tour, and “Grafica per giovani grafici pubblicitari", "Illustrazione Botanica", "Progettazione spazi espositivi" and "Frutticoltura e orticoltura amatoriale" contests.
There is also the biggest Tuscan pumpkin Contest for both professional and amateur exhibiters.
