Fabiani’s water treasure

Every day of the year, by prior arrangement

the second and third triads of primary school

Almost a century ago, the architect Maks Fabiani gave the Ferrari Villa and its garden in Štanjel something that is very valuable in the Karst: water. While searching for Fabiani’s ‘water supply treasure’, you will explore and learn about the technical, cultural and natural heritage of the Ferrari Garden, this time with an emphasis on its outstanding water supply system. It involves a ‘treasure hunt’ and a discussion on the ‘discovered’ parts of the water supply system.
