The culture of nature along with suggestions concerning fashion and interior design featured in Floracult, event created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai which was recently held in the Rome countryside, in La Storta at I Casali del Pino as the talk featuring the photographer and journalist Luca Bracali who talked about the book he made “A rose is a rose”. The book documents on photos the experience of a celebrated family owning a nursery since four generations, the Barni family which created renowned roses as the ones dedicated to iconic personas like Mariangela Melato, Anna Venturini Fendi and many others.

That was not the only chance to know more about flowers and plants. In fact the expert Vanda Del Valli talked about the uses of herbs since long times ago, as the Euphorbia, used as remedy against sifilis, the betel berries and the leaves of coca as stimulants and the peyote from which it arises the mescaline, powerful hallucinogenic, evoking the psychedelic culture from Sixties and Seventies, Jim Morrison, his dangerous habits, “The doors of perceptions” and “Heaven and hell” by Aldous Huxley.

Culture as well as fashion suggestions, the creations by Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, made by joining antique, research cloths to contemporary shapes as well as other unique pieces she made that are under the sign of a timeless elegance. The nice Marina of Verdiana & Beniamina, brand bringing the name of her two daughters, presented a series of dresses and shirts embodying high-end materials, a fine lace and other fun patterns. The brand having its atelier in Milan, in Via Marco Polo 13 also makes works of customization, renewing and reinterpreting the clothes everyone has in its own wardrobe. A smashing series of accessories completed the fashion showcase. I saw again the jewelry designer Simona Rinciari of whose work combines natural elements as berries, the cinnamon sticks, the fava beans and dry leaves to metal and gems, giving rise to unusual creations that make concrete a bright craftsmanship. Jewelry and hats, head accessories hand-made by Patrizia Romiti.

La cultura della natura unitamente alle suggestioni inerenti la moda e l’ interior design sono stati I protagonisti a Floracult, evento creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai che si è recentemente tenuto nella campagna romana, a La Storta presso I Casali del Pino come il talk con il fotografo e giornalista Luca Bracali che ha parlato del suo libro “A rose is a rose”. Il libro documenta su foto l’ esperienza di una celebre famiglia di vivaisti da quattro generazioni, la famiglia Barni che ha creato rinomate rose come quelle dedicate a iconici personaggi quali Mariangela Melato, Anna Venturini Fendi e molti altri.

Questa non è stata l’ unica occasione di conoscere meglio fiori e piante. L’ esperta Vanda Del Valli ha infatti parlato degli usi di erbe sin dai tempi più remoti, come l’ Euphorbia, usata come rimedio contro la sifilide, le bacche di betel e le foglie di coca come stimolanti e il peyote da cui deriva la mescaline, potente allucinogeno che evoca la cultura psichedelica degli anni Sessanta e Settanta, Jim Morrison, le sue rischiose abitudini, “Le porte della percezione” e “Paradiso e inferno” di Aldous Huxley.

Cultura come anche suggestioni moda, le creazioni di Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, da lei realizzate unendo tessuti antichi e di ricerca a forme contemporanee insieme ad altri suoi pezzi unici che sono all’ insegna di un’ eleganza senza tempo. La simpatica Marina di Verdiana & Beniamina, brand che prende il nome dalle sue due figlie, ha presentato una serie di abiti e camicie che racchiudono in sé, materiali di alta qualità, un raffinato pizzo e divertenti motivi. Il marchio, che ha il suo atelier a Milano in Via Marco Polo 13, realizza anche lavori di customizzazione, rinnovando e reinterpretando gli abiti del guardaroba. Ho rivisto la designer di gioielli Simona Rinciari il cui raffinato lavoro combina elementi naturali come le bacche, le stecche di cannella, le fave e le foglie secche al metallo e alle pietre preziose, dando vita a insolite creazioni che concretizzano una brillante artigianalità. Gioielli e cappelli, accessori per capelli, realizzati a mano da Patrizia Romiti.

La versione delle slippers Friulane di Allagiulia, brand creato da Giulia Campeol, sono state esposte nell’ area di Dedé maison, la rinomata boutique di Roma, ubicata in Via dei Pianellari 21 della formidabile Theodora Bugel dedicata alla creazione e vendita di componenti di arredo e homewear, che ha presentato una accattivante selezione di oggetti. Ha brillato l’ alchemica leggerezza e il fascino dei profumi di Meo Fusciuni aka il cugino di Fabio Quaranta – speciale individualità che mi ha fatto molto piacere conoscere e con il quale ho condiviso momenti di vita, risate e interludi epicurei – che ha esposto alla Scuola dei reinventori, curate da Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio De Navasques, le sue fragranze quali “Notturno” e “Luce” e si è trasformato in erborista, realizzando alcune pozioni magiche per prendersi cura di sé. Un’ esperienza travolgente che è stata colorata da magia, calore, colore, divertimento e relax.

Plants, flowers and butterflies, these will be the themes of some talks as the one which will be held on 25th April at 11:00 am, starring the nose or rather the researcher of olfactive memory Meo Fusciuni who, accompanied by the author and journalist Ida Tonini, will talk about plants and scents. It will follow at 12:30 am the book launch of “A rose is a rose” by photographer and journalist Luca Bracali revealing the intimate beauty of a flower and telling about the experience of a family owning a nursery which since four generations joins search and experimentation. The entomologist Gianumberto Accinelli at 5:00 pm will tell about the “butterfly effect” or the creation of “ecological hallways” by using nettles, fennels and carrots, to bring the butterflies from the countryside and there will be along with him the photographer Stefano Nicolini who will present an exhibition project focused on the Monarch butterfly which is really endangered. Moreover Sunday 27th April at 11:00 am the expert Vanda Del Valli will reveal the different uses of succulent plants. Floracult will also host many permanent events as “Legni alla deriva”, exhibition of works by the artist Giancarlo Scialanga, woods of whose journey is told by music made by the sound designer Pietro Scialanga. It will be also on show “Padma” by Sacha Turchi combining the linen, cotton and canvas cloths, colored with dyes made of medical plants, to iron structures. Another project having a highly dreamy-like impact is “La memoria degli oggetti” by Mesa Capella. A fairy-tale story, evoked by objects, old cut photographs becoming surreal scenes that talk about past lives, the lives of others, caught for a moment, saved and protected under a bell jar. Art and craftsmanship on show, the one by Alessandro Visi, “menusier” or maker of furniture made of notched and sculpted wood and also to learn, purpose of the School for Re-inventors by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio de Navasques which will host the workshop featuring Meo Fusciuni along with his plants and scents where it will be able to learn making and taking care of oneself by using natural elements. A not to be missed happening for all the ones who love or want to rediscover the nature and its culture.

Un altro progetto dalla forte valenza onirica è “La memoria degli oggetti” di Mesa Capella. Un racconto fiabesco evocato da oggetti, foto d’epoca ritagliate che diventano scenari surreali e parlano di vite trascorse, le vite degli altri, catturate per un attimo, conservate e protette, sotto una campana di vetro. Arte e anche artigianalità in mostra, quella di Alessandro Visi, “menusier” ovvero fabbricante di mobili in legno intagliati e scolpiti e anche da apprendere, finalità della Scuola per Reinventori di Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio de Navasques che ospiterà il workshop di cui sarà protagonista Meo Fusciuni con le sue piante e le sue fragranze durante il quale si potrà imparare a fare e anche curarsi con elementi naturali.
