A “rosy” afternoon in Trieste

Visiting San Giovanni Park rose garden, ex Psychiatric Hospital

There is a unique place in Trieste: San Giovanni Park, which once was a Psychiatric Hospital. This is where the Basaglia revolution – which dismantled psychiatric hospitals and gave patients their dignity back – started.

No longer a gated area, today it is a huge park that everyone can enjoy and explore.

We offer you a visit led by a nature expert. You will have the chance to admire the rose collection that includes the best of the modern and old production of roses, comprising more than 5000 species, some not available on the market, created by Dr. Vladimir Vremec in collaboration with Cooperativa Agricola San Pantaleone with the aim of making it one of the best in Italy.

The Park features roses dedicated to famous people and others particularly interesting for both their beauty and their history. Many varieties were created by English, German, French, Dutch and even American and Japanese breeders.

The visit will start with a guided walk in the contemporary rose garden and then move on to the lower part of the park where the old rose garden is located.

If you are interested in the history of the buildings and the old psychiatric hospital and want to find out who was “Marco Cavallo”, how Law No. 180 was born and how the Basaglia revolution started, we can organise a visit that focuses more on the psychological aspects of the park: the Lister Atelier, the Basaglia area and Parco delle Fragole (Strawberry Park).
