Maria Luisa Montesi Sgaravatti

A woman with a strong, dynamic personality, belonged to a family whose business activity is “Greenery”. Being a great expert in botany, she promoted in Padova, her hometown, the love and culture of gardens and flowers through various events, the most successful being the competition called “Padova Fiorita” (Padova in flowers). For merit and acknowledgement of her commitment, she was nominated “Cavaliere della Republica”.

A great lover of golf, she started playing at a very young age, taking part in numerous competitions throughout Europe, and it was thanks to her that the first European Senior Women's Tournament was held. Nominated captain of the Italian team for this event, she has led with honour in various international competitions over the years.
