Who is our focus

It is open to everyone, from nature and art lovers, to those who want to understand how a garden is created, from those who want to discover the secrets of plants to those who want to admire the beauty of Pistoia and its territory.

How is it organized

The enterprise was born in 2017, when Pistoia was elected “Italian Capital of Culture”, to enhance the century-old bond between Pistoia and the nursery business, linking the artistic and architectural beauty to the landscape and natural beauty. To this end, MATI 1909 promotes MATI EXPERIENCE to all its customers and contacts all over the world in order to make one of Pistoia’s excellence known internationally: green culture.
