Every year, tulip fields in Lisse, in the Netherlands, begin to bloom in March and are in peak bloom by late April. The Dutch produce a total of 4.3 billion tulip bulbs each year, of which 2.3 billion are grown into cut flowers. Of these, 1.3 billion are sold in the Netherlands and the remainder is exported: 630 million bulbs to Europe and 370 million elsewhere.
Castello di Sammezzano (Reggello/ Italy) The extravagant residence Castello di Sammezzano sits on top of a hill in Tuscany, Northern Italy. Originally it was built in the Moorish style in 1605 for Ximenes d'Aragona and then re-designed between 1853 and 1889. After the war the castello was used as a luxury hotel until closure in the mid to late 1990's. It was abandoned until April 2012 when the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.
