Il Giardino di Manipura

Experience nature a Il Giardino di Manipura

Born and raised with Elena Giannini's passion, in continuous evolution, Il Giardino di Manipura is the realization of her dream.

Agritourism, evolutionary and social farm where you can connect with nature, art, history, a place where you can express your creativity and learn, both as adults and children, thanks to many courses of self-production, well-being, tasting , sensory and manual.

Manipura Garden is structured on the 4 natural elements: fire, air, water and earth.

Entering to Il Giardino di Manipura means rediscovering contact with our Mother Earth through the natural elements to recharge ourselves with positive energy by immersing ourselves in the vitality of Nature.

You will be able to touch the vital energy of these elements through the flowers, the leaves of the trees and their colorful fruits, the scent of the earth and the water of its magical pond.

The Manipura lake is an oasis of peace immersed in the green heart of the Massarosa countryside. A spectacular corner which, after years of neglect, has been redeveloped and donated to the community thanks to the work of Elena Giannini.

A natural jewel open to all and perfect for families to be discovered by walking along the river embankment and in the spaces of the company among aromatic plants, eucalyptus, olive trees and flowers. A micro-world that represents the peculiarities of the climate and the typical vegetation of Lake Massaciuccoli where it is possible to spot different species of birds and lake fish.

The Manipura lake tells a story of inestimable historical and cultural value and for this reason it is still today an important point of interest for the entire Massarosa area; a story that begins with the construction of the brick kiln.

Why the choice of this name? We tell you right away

Manipura means extracting the most precious jewel from Mother Earth with your hands, namely vitality; it is also the name for the third chakra, located in the solar plexus area above the navel, metaphorically our personal center of power and well-being. For this Manipura is also often understood as a motto, a hymn to life and willpower: "I can!" An invitation not to give up in the face of life's challenges and pitfalls.
