Floracult, the event celebrating the nature and its culture, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai, which was held in the Rome countryside, in La Storta, at I Casali del Pino, has been the successful chance to discover and enjoy flowers, plants, the little, big hosts of natural world, meet awesome companions of Epicurean interludes and share new flavors. Concerning the Epicurean side of my stay at Floracult, at I Casali del Pino – which is a smashing farming company, producing cheeses, cold cuts, pastries and other delights and is the place where is also the factory of Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture promoting the culture of re-use and sustainability, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi – I was pleased of discover and enjoy the wines and spirits selected by Anna Venturini Fendi about I will talk about much more soon. It has been a smashing, magic experience, an unforgettable edition of an event, successfully making concrete that healthy ethic I celebrate.

 Floracult, l’ evento che celebra la natura e la sua cultura, creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai, che si è tenuto nella campagna romana, a La Storta, presso I Casali del Pino, è stato la felice occasione per scoprire e apprezzare i piccoli, grandi ospiti del mondo della natura, conoscere fantastici compagni di interludi epicurei e condividere nuovi sapori. Riguardo alla dimensione epicurea della mia permanenza a Floracult, a I Casali del Pino – che è una formidabile azienda agricola che produce, formaggi, salumi, torte e altre delizie ed è anche il luogo in cui si trova la factory di Carmina Campus, brand, di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo che racchiude in sé la cultura del riuso e la sostenibilità, creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi – mi ha fatto molto piacere scoprire e gustare i vini e i distillati selezionati da Anna Venturini Fendi dei quali parlerò presto più approfonditamente. È stata una formidabile, magica esperienza, un’ edizione indimenticabile di un evento che concretizza felicemente quella salubre etica che celebra.

I was amazed by the cross pollination from one grass to another, a practice which generates addiction of the insect. Another weird discovery concerned the relationship between a tree and the ants that are hosted and nourished by that tree, its body contains ingredients that create addiction and make the ants more aggressive. In fact the ants fight against every (little or big) creature to protect the tree.

I talked hilariously to Stefano about the vegetal creatures that play a role of mistress and pushers. The sensitivity evidenced in the vegetal world like the mimosa pudica (“pudica” stands as “prudish”), a kind of mimosa which reacts to the touch of a hand.

Stefano modestly encourages the knowledge and its sharing I consider this to be one of the beautiful gifts that came out of Floracult.

Rosa Sublime” book launch celebrates the family tradition of Vittorio Barni, the production and creation of new types of roses like the Mariangela Melato rose, a white rose that had been presented to the sister of the iconic Italian actress who passed away recently. Emma Bonino, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italian Government, the actress Isabella Ferrari and the director Lina Wertmuller all spoke about Mariangela Melato and her sense of freedom which the white rose in her honor evokes.

One day under the sign of nature I was pleased to share with Myriam B., bright fashion designer and dear friend of mine along with other friends.

FLORACULT (1): TRE GIORNI ALL’ INSEGNA DELLA NATURA & SOSTENIBILITÀ

f 2 14

La quarta edizione di Floracult, l’ evento creato dalla illuminata fashion designer di Carmina Campus e attivista Ilaria Venturini Fendi ha avuto quali protagonisti molti profumi, colori, sapori ed eventi che celebrano tutti la natura e si è tenuto nella campagna di Roma, presso La Storta, a I Casali del Pino.

Questo evento mi sorprende ogni anno con nuove scoperte, felici incontri all’ insegna di uno stile di vita slow, consapevole e sostenibile.

Uno di questi meravigliosi happenings riguarda il mio incontro con Stefano Mancuso, esperto di neurologia vegetale, direttore del LINV (Laboratorio Internazionale di Neurologia Vegetale) che è stato protagonista della presentazione del libro da lui scritto “Verde brillante. Sensibilità e intelligenza del mondo vegetale”.

Mi ha stupito l’ impollinazione da una pianta all’ altra, una pratica che genera la dipendenza dell’ insetto. Un’ altra bizzarra scoperta riguardava la relazione tra un albero e le formiche che sono ospitate e nutrite da quell’ albero, il suo corpo contiene ingredienti che generano dipendenza e rendono le formiche più aggressive. Infatti le formiche combattono contro ogni ( piccola o grande) creatura per proteggere l’ albero.

Ho parlato con ilarità a Stefano delle creature vegetali che interpretano un ruolo di mistress e pushers, della sensibilità dimostrata nel mondo vegetale come dalla mimosa pudica, un tipo di mimosa che reagisce al tocco di una mano.

Stefano incoraggia con modestia la conoscenza e la sua condivisione che considero essere uno dei bei regali provenienti da Floracult.

La presentazione del libro “Rosa Sublime” celebra la tradizione di famiglia di Vittorio Barni, la produzione e creazione di nuovi tipi di rose come la rosa Mariangela Melato, una rosa bianca che è stata presentata alla sorella dell’ iconica attrice italiana che è recentemente venuta a mancare. Emma Bonino, il Ministro degli Esteri del Governo italiano, l’ attrice Isabella Ferrari e la regista Lina Wertmuller hanno tutte parlato di Mariangela Melato ed il suo senso per la libertà che la rosa bianca in suo onore evoca.
