Bustaffa’s activity dates back to the end of the nineteenth century. The “Administrative guide of the city and province of Mantua” from 1896 mentions the name Odoardo Bustaff a in the “Gardeners and Florists” category. Odoardo was Giovanni’s father and the grandfather of Massimiliano, the current owner, and in 1895 was commissioned with the project planning of the old garden of Porta Pradella. In those years the company’s headquarters were in via Cairoli and then in viale delle Rimembranze. In 1939 the company bought the area in via Legnaghese n.2, bordering with the House of Sparafucile, continuing its production and sale of fl owering plants. During the ‘50s, Bustaff a took care of restoring the city’s public gardens and provided the construction of new greenhouses, increasing the production of greenhouse plants. Since 1998 the activity of growing plants, garden and green area maintenance has been under Massimiliano’s guidance, who keeps his family’s values with passion, and through the use of contemporary and cutting edge technologies, off ers quality products, carrying on a history that started more than 100 years ago.
