C’è un fiore che accoglie l’arrivo della stagione autunnale con lo scintillio di una stella.
✨
Il suo nome deriva dal greco antico “aster”. Venne chiamato così perché ricorda proprio una stella: in alcuni momenti assume una colorazione blu, altri bianca o addirittura rosa. Al centro porta il colore dell’oro e all’esterno può essere più scura.
🌸
Giovane aster, porta la tua ventata di colore “settembrina” sul lago Maggiore!

There is a flower that welcomes the arrival of the autumn season with the sparkle of a star.
✨
Its name derives from the ancient Greek "aster". It was called this because it resembles a star. In some moments it takes on a blue color, others white or even pink. In the center it bears the color of gold and on the outside it can be darker.
🌸
Young aster, bring your "September" breath of color to Lake Maggiore!
