“Nature always wears the colours of the soul”
Franz, born in Switzerland in the Toggenburg hills, stimulated by the landscape variety of his land, immediately acquires a predisposition to careful and curious study of the natural and vegetable environment. His preparation for the profession begins with apprenticeship in gardening, with a specialization in cutting flowers and ornamental plants, and continues with a degree at the Academy of Flowerdesign / Aof Floristmeister International in Zurich.
The excellent competence acquired through the studies, combined with a continuous awareness, led Franz around Europe: Geneva, Zurich, Cologne, Florence.
In 1997 he moved to Rome, where he became the owner of Tulipani Bianchi (White Tulips), a shop located in the historic center of the city.
His workers create exemplary and sought after realizations, addressed to an elitist audience. Over the years customers rely on Franz as floral decorator for private and corporate events, weddings, parties and hotel furnishings.
Since 2013, a large laboratory-showroom has taken the place of the street shop, thus adapting to new work requirements, including the close collaboration with the Wedding Designer, Mary Tricarico of La Sposa degli Alberi.
