English Interview 

Book: "The Rose Garden of the ballet star Lorena Baricalla" 

Internationally recognized Lorena Baricalla is a multi-talented artist and innovator. A visionary whose creative universes expand from ballet to art, and to fashion.
She has currently written a new book, this time in French, which has just been published.
After the Trilogy of “Origins – The Answer”, an epic saga of adventure and spirituality in English and Italian versions - which is also the base for an international project with a big show and a trilogy of movies - she has chosen a new subject, even if it is still linked to her vision of life.

In this little book entitled “The Rose Garden of ballet star Lorena Baricalla”, she tells of her new passion for the wonderful world of roses. Between anecdotes and reflections, she describes her Rose Garden, a journey of beauty and harmony where each rose amazes with its colors and its unique fragrance that recharge the soul.

How is the idea of this book born?
Quite naturally because I was inspired by my new rose garden created in May 2023. Thanks to this beautiful gift, I was able to learn more about roses, which occupy a special place in life and society. Celebrated by many poets, writers and painters, the rose has always inspired artists and so it has been for me!

How many roses do you have now in your Rose Garden?
It currently has 72 different Rose Bushes from Botanical Collection, selected with passion and cared with dedication.  A fascinating world that I have just discovered and in which, each of the 72 has its own story and personality...
A Collection that will perhaps expand further, who knows? 

How do you take inspiration from your roses?
The Rose Garden has been disposed in a route, in the shape of a mystical and endless circle, and surrounds the house. And it was by decorating the garden with these magnificent roses that several themes of my life that are dear to me have naturally become part in this journey: the soul, dance, history and myth, ...
This route is also a way to regenerate energy, calm the body and mind, and nourish the soul through contact with the beauty of nature. 

What did you discover that you didn’t know about roses?
For example, that Rose has its origins in Mesopotamia and that the Sumerians were the first to adorn their homes with this flower. This reconduct to my Trilogy “Origins-The Answer” which is based on the Mesopotamian scriptures and the quantum theories of space time…
This was a surprise for me and for that, I positioned the statue of Nin.Hur.Sag, the Great Mother Goddess of Mesopotamia, in the very heart of the Rose Garden. The circle closes on itself!   

In your book what do you write about?
The book reunites many elements: some anecdotes about my career, my vision of life, the description of each rose in the Rose Garden that was chosen for what it symbolically represents, for its evocative name and attractive qualities. Moreover, all of them have a truly different personality, through their colors and scents and seem like actors in the theatre of life!  It’s a little book easy to read and I hope that the readers will enjoy it! It can be found on Amazon or at the Alphabet bookstore in Monaco.
