The suggestion of this new-found culture of the use of greenery and the new innovative challenges proposed gather at the "Vivai del Sud" the best architects of the gardens formed in the universities where this specialization was present. success was immediate, making operational nurseries of the south as well as in Italy, with branches in Milan, Venice, Florence, Naples, Catania, Costa Smeralda and with representatives in France, Spain, Germany, United States, Middle and Far East and Africa. At the end of the 1960s, Vivai del Sud consolidated its position with integrated architecture companies, positioning excellence in design and furniture and furniture production through its plants in Italy and, strategically linked to the product, in Senegal, Brazil and the Philippines. .
