Between fascination and curiosity
Fraforeano Park, is a park rich in history; who tells you "Ciccinella Kechler"; as in all stories of women and gardens, the common denominator is the passion! Is perceived through the words of Ciccinella, which tells the story of Fraforeano Park, sharing it with readers of Fiori&Forchette.
The Fraforeano Historical Park is located in the municipality of Ronchis, province of Udine, in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Is annexed to the eighteenth-century Villa de Kechler de Asarta and extends over an area of almost 3 hectares, along the Bank of the Tagliamento. Born on a project by Giuseppe Jappelli, famous landscape architect who designed in the mid-nineteenth century a park which now no longer exists along the river Stella and Tagliamento River this, whose waters, conveyed through a canal, up form a central lake, sown by islets with hundreds of varieties of plants.
Our story told by Kechler Ciccinella ...
One day about 8 years ago, taking a walk in the Park, I decided that it was necessary to put your hands, because despite being a "minor" Park reflected a historic period, a botanical garden, a project to raise awareness and not least because my family had a duty/right to keep it.
We began to clear the underbrush and give perspectives and views. For two winters had practically no other, we helped the civil protection of Ronchis and Fraforeano country volunteers. Then friends intervened that they began to cut larger, trees grew everywhere but that there could no longer stand, and slowly reappeared here a drawing, there an added value, there a view so far denied, here a landscape unthought.
The most beautiful and important trees recovered their status, put in perspective value and the disappearance of essences that hid the scope. The avenues were restored, adding gravel and by planting, which was missing, the convallaria that all bounds. Gabriele took care of some plants, especially a horse chestnut, poplar, white oak, dry branches cutting and tying together the most unstable, has operated phyto-therapeutic interventions on other important essences, Redwoods, Cedars, magnolias, Thuja bushes and taxi.
We have restored the bridges that lead to the Islands and clean the shores where stand the pneumofori of taxodium that surround the pond. We fertilized lawns. We found out that you thought a rate is a Torreya Nucifera, a rare but very popular in Japan and that a Tuja Plicata is a Calocedrum Decurrens, friends or lovers of botanical passage make us aware ...When are there not a day goes by without an intervention without a small or high-maintenance, without a project to share with Dario, who knows how to do everything.
