Blindly into the scent”, an experience under the sign of memory, that has been the olfactive and interactive installation made by the bright alchemist and herbalist Meo Fusciuni which featured in the sixt edition of Floracult. To turn back time, remind the present, past, fragments of life, faces, feelings, sounds connected to a scent. A Proustian becoming an unusual exercise through a sense, the olfaction, expressive medium which is rarely used to do that. The mysteries of olfactive design are infinite. It’ s a wide land to explore, magic of chemistry, molecules, emotions. Meo who usually tells about his own experiences, journeys through the scents he make, this time created something which has thought only to be shared with the others. A wrapping, playful and solemn experience, emphasized by a display of photography, poetries he wrote and the lyricism of a music he made, a suggestive discover I did during this circumstance. There were 12 boxes on a table in the room which hosted the installation, an olfactive path to do slowly and solemnly, a short emotional trip, made by using the nose. At the entering Meo gave a paper to fulfill in order to describe the existent or non-existent, more or less recent memory, connected to the fragrance(it was a game or rather a test and its result would has been anonymous or read for random during the talk held by the Psychology Gianni Brighetti on this theme). I still remember the scent of caramel embodied in a box which reminded me the candyfloss I joyfully ate when I was a child and go to the circus with my mother, then another strong smell which made me remind the smell of crowd and the energy during a concert of Iggy Pop I attended many times ago in Rome. The olfaction, a sense silently, clearly, deepness and lightness speaking. That evidences how much we can discover on ourselves, our interaction with the others and the world surrounding us through it, a successful epiphany.

ALLA RICERCA DEL TEMPO PERDUTO: AROMI E POESIA VISTI DA MEO FUSCIUNI A FLORACULT

A occhi chiusi nel profumo”, un esperienza all’ insegna della memoria, l’ installazione olfattiva e interattiva realizzata dal brilllante alchimista and aromatario Meo Fusciuni che è stata protagonista della sesta edizione di Floracult. Tornare indietro nel tempo, ricordare il presente, il passato, frammenti di vita, volti, sentimenti, suoni legati a un sentore. Una ricerca proustiana che diventa un esercizio insolito attraverso un senso, l’ olfatto, medium espressivo sovente poco usato per far ciò. I misteri del design olfattivo sono infiniti. Un’ ampio terreno da esplorare, magia della chimica, delle molecole, emozioni. Meo che solitamente racconta delle sue esperienze, dei suoi viaggi attraverso i suoi profumi, stavolta ha creato qualcosa pensata unicamente per essere condivisa con gli altri. Un’ esperienza avvolgente, ludica e solenne, enfatizzata da una raccolta di fotografie, poesie da lui scritte e dal lirismo di musiche da lui create, una felice scoperta da me fatta durante questa circostanza. Nella sala che ospitava l’ installazione si trovavano dodici scatole, un percorso olfattivo da compiere con lentezza e solennità, un breve viaggio emozionale, fatto con il proprio naso. All’ ingresso Meo stesso dava un foglio da compilare per descrivere il ricordo legato alla fragranza, esistente o inesistente, più o meno recente(era un gioco o meglio un test, il cui risultato sarebbe stato anonimo o casualmente letto durante il talk tenuto dal professore di psicologia Gianni Brighetti su questa tematica). Ricordo ancora la fragranza di caramello racchiusa in una scatola che mi ricordava lo zucchero filato che gioiosamente mangiavo quando da bambina andavo al circo con mia madre, poi un’ odore forte che mi richiamava alla mente l’ odore della folla, l’ energia durante un concerto di Iggy Pop a cui ho assistito tanto tempo fa a Roma. L’ olfatto, un senso che parla in silenzio e con profondità, chiarezza e leggerezza. Ciò dimostra quanto possiamo scoprire di noi stessi, della nostra interazione con gli altri e con il mondo che ci circonda attraverso di esso, una felice epifania.

The co-branding collection by Carmina Campus and Vibram, photo by N

It has recently presented in Milan at Entrata libera, awesome concept store focused on the search in the realm of design, the collection of accessories made in co-branding by Carmina Campus and Vibram making concrete the categorical imperative “Save waste from waste”. An idea developed by Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture created by the bright, overwhelming pioneer fashion designer, farm businesswoman and social activist Ilaria Venturini Fendi and shared today with Vibram, renowned brand producing the rubber soles, which gave rise to a smashing collection of bags, made by re-using the rubber – more precisely, as Ilaria told me, the first rubber plate, resulting from the start of productive process and therefore it is useless -, thus taking away this material from the dump and turning into something wonderful. That evidences which can create without destroying, respecting the environment and earth which host us. It’ another way to see life, the world surrounding us, another way of thinking, working, creating, making and producing fashion, which emphasizes the idea of elegance as bringer of value and values. A healthy ethic is embodied in a vibrant aesthetics where it shines the approach of matter- and reminds me of work by Alberto Burri – and refinement. The many bags, as the nice rubber clutch bags are decorated by little, fun patterns made of rubber as well as other items, joining the rubber to other materials as leather and fur and are genuine passé-partout.

SALUBRI IDEE IN MOVIMENTO: IL LANCIO DELLA COLLEZIONE IN CO-BRANDING DI CARMINA CAMPUS & VIBRAM DA ENTRATA LIBERA

È stata presentata recentemente a Milano presso Entrata libera, fantastico concept store incentrato sulla ricerca nell’ ambito del design, la collezione di accessori realizzata in co-branding da Carmina Campus e Vibram che concretizza l’ imperativo categorico “Save waste from waste”(ovvero “Salva i rifiuti dai rifiuti”). Un’ idea consolidata da Carmina Campus, brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo creato dalla brillante, inarrestabile, pionieristica fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista nel sociale Ilaria Venturini Fendi e condivisa oggi con Vibram, rinomato marchio che produce suole di gomma, che ha dato vita a una formidabile collezione di borse, realizzate mediante il riuso della gomma – più precisamente, come Ilaria mi ha raccontato, la prima lastra di gomma, risultato dell’ inizio del processo produttivo e che pertanto è inutilizzabile -, sottraendo perciò questo materiale alla discarica e trasformandolo in qualcosa di meraviglioso. Ciò dimostra che si può creare senza distruggere, rispettando l’ ambiente e la terra che ci ospita. E’ un altro modo di vedere la vita, il mondo che ci circonda, un altro modo di pensare, lavorare, creare, fare e produrre moda che enfatizza l’ idea di eleganza come portatrice di valore e valori. Una salubre etica è racchiusa in una vibrante estetica in cui splende il sapiente approccio materico – che mi richiama alla mente l’ opera di Alberto Burri – e la raffinatezza. Le varie borse, le clutch di gomma sono decorate da piccoli divertenti motivi di gomma, come anche altri modelli che uniscono la gomma ad altri materiali quali pelle, pelliccia e sono autentici passé-partout.

ZITA

God save Zita” is the event which was recently held in Rome to celebrate the 51st anniversary of the renowned concept store of Zita Fabiani. A joyful atmosphere was enriched by the olfactive suggestions by the bright alchemist and aromatorius Meo Fusciuni – telling about his journeys, experiences and memories through the parfume – where he presented the new scent, “Narcotico”, a hypnotic scent , giving rise to the Mystic cycle(. It’s all about a backwards journey to deal with the future, a song of the everyday life’s holiness is what the perfume embodies. Strong emotions, arising with a silent and deep dialogue with the inner self, emphasized by the notes of incense, benjamin along with the tonka sweetening the olfactive pyramid, including a smashing play of contrast made of patchouli and agar wood, vanilla and musk). Genuineness and healthy ideas on the move, the ones by Ilaria Venturini Fendi, pioneer fashion designer and social activist, creator of brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture Carmina Campus, promoting the culture of re-use, also featured in the event. Here it was presented the “Pictogram bags”, bags inspired by the pictogram designs (made of beverage can bottoms, leather sample swatches and leather leftovers, scraps of PVC, nylon fabrics or other waterproof materials) along with the “Space waste bags” (made of black rubbish bag, flawed technical materials or job lots, the base of aluminum cans, leather leftovers or leather sample swatches) by the brand. It was a nice interlude under the sign of lightness, fun and spontaneity which gave the chance to customers and enthusiasts to know and talk directly with the creators about the products they made, making closer two realms that are usually far away: the creativity and the consumption.

“GOD SAVE ZITA”: MEO FUSCIUNI & CARMINA CAMPUS FESTEGGIANO IL CONCEPT STORE DI ROMA ZITA FABIANI

God save Zita” è l’ evento che si è recentemente tenuto a Roma  per festeggiare il 51° anniversario del rinomato concept store di Zita Fabiani. Una gioiosa atmosfera, arricchita dalle suggestioni olfattive del brillante alchimista e aromatario Meo Fusciuni – che parla di viaggi, esperienze e ricordi attraverso –  durante la quale ha presentato la nuova fragranza, “Narcotico”, un profumo ipnotico che dà vita al Ciclo della Mistica(. È un viaggio a ritroso per affrontare il futuro, un canto della sacralità del quotidiano. Forti emozioni che nascono da un dialogo silente e profondo con l’ interiorità, enfatizzato da note di incenso, benzoino unitamente alla fava tonka che addolcisce la piramide olfattiva, comprensiva di un formidabile gioco di contrasti fatto di patchouli and agarwood, vaniglia e muschio). Genuinità e salubri idee in movimento, quelle di Ilaria Venturini Fendi, pionieristica fashion designer e attivista del sociale, creatrice del brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo Carmina Campus che promuove la cultura del riuso è stata anche lei protagonista dell’ evento. Ivi è sono state presentate le “Pictogram bags”, borse che si ispirano alla grafica dei pittogrammi( realizzate con fondi di lattina, cartelle colori, ritagli di pelle, scarti di pvc, nylon o altri materiali waterproof) insieme alle “Space waste bags” (create con sacchi neri della spazzatura, tecno materiali difettati o fondi di magazzino, la base delle lattine di alluminio, ritagli di pelle e pelle recuperata da cartelle colori) del marchio. Un simpatico interludio all’ insegna di leggerezza, divertimento e spontaneità che ha offerto la possibilità ai clienti e agli entusiasti di conoscere e parlare direttamente con i creatori dei loro prodotti, avvicinando due ambiti che solitamente sono lontani: la creatività ed il consumo.

La poesia di Meo Fusciuni, suggestioni liquide che parlano dei suoi viaggi, profumate poesie che dipingono le luci e ombre dell’ amore e sono racchiuse nelle sue fragranze (“1#nota di viaggio”, 2#nota di viaggio”, 3#nota di viaggio”, “Notturno” e “Luce”) saranno i protagonisti di un evento che si terrà il 22 Agosto a Salina presso il giardino di Capofaro Malvasia & Resort. Un formidabile interludio olfattivo, un racconto che inizia in Sicilia, terra natia dell’ aromatario per tornare a Salina a creare profumi e alchimie. Questo incantevole evento nasce dalla collaborazione e dall’ amicizia tra Meo e la famiglia di rinomati produttori vinicoli Tasca D’ Almerita che concretizza felicemente con la sua opera la cultura del gusto, il legame con una regione, la Sicilia, le sue tradizioni e l’ etica della sostenibilità. Un happening imperdibile per scoprire e apprezzare la magia e le meraviglie di un luogo e dei suoi protagonisti.

Fashion and olfactive design featured in “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, collateral event of the Altaroma latest edition I ideated and curated which coincided with “Black celebration”, the other official event I made in collaboration with Altaroma and was held in Rome, at the same street, via di Montoro, smashing area hosting factories of artisans. Three were the different locations that hosted a smashing showcase of creativity made in Italy: the factory Menexa, the bride atelier La Maison Blanche and the factory of lutist Michel Eggimann where was presented the creations by OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, combined to olfactive installations smelling of artistic perfumery scents created by Meo Fusciuni, romantic and genius aromatorius, apothecary, researcher of olfactive memory embodying liquid emotions in a bottle, that tells about his journeys, uniqueness of experiences and universality of feelings. The travelling universe of scents by Meo, his two fragrances composing the Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” and “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)” dialogued with the minimalism and craftsmanship by OFFICINE 904, eclectic factory and brand of accessories and jewelry created by Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello – promoting and successfully making concrete a free dialogue between art, fashion, design e architecture, giving rise to ideas on the move, signs, symbols, surfaces and shapes becoming projects and products, stories and experiences drawing the Italian lifestyle and taste – that were hosted by the factory Menexa. The approach of matter by Myriam B., inspired by the nature, flowers and corals that are reworked by non-specific paillettes, feathers and gems where it shines a bright craftsmanship, was combined to the third scent talking about the scent of love and composes the trilogy of journey by Meo Fusciuni, “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, suave dialogue enhanced by the light atmospheres of the bride La Maison Blanche. The poetry by Anna Porcu where fascinations from the past, made concrete by a jewel, the cameo, become contemporary and blend in the leather and silver, joined to music or rather to the creations by the lutist Michel Eggiman and scents by Meo Fusciuni or the two fragrances composing il Ciclo della poesia (The cycle of poetry). Lights and shadows, nostalgia and love, the features of two scents, “Notturno” and “Luce” that were part of a delicate olfactive installation. A myriad of signs, craftsmanship, art, uniqueness and experimentation that catch fashion as total experience and lifestyle. An enchanting afternoon interlude which was sweetened by the experience of taste by a renowned Sicilian wine house, Tasca d’ Almerita along with the creations by Bocca di Dama.

Moda e design olfattivo sono stati i protagonisti di “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, evento collaterale dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma da me ideato e curato in concomitanza di “Black celebration”, l’ altro evento da me realizzato in collaborazione con Altaroma e si è tenuto a Roma, nella stessa strada, a via di Montoro, formidabile area che ospita i laboratori di artigiani. Tre erano le diverse locations che esponevano una formidabile rassegna di creatività made in Italy: la factory Menexa, l’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche e la factory del liutaio Michel Eggimann in cui sono state presentate le creazioni di OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, abbinate a installazioni olfattive di fragranze di profumeria artistica create da Meo Fusciuni, romantico e geniale aromatario, uno speziale, ricercatore della memoria olfattiva che racchiude emozioni liquide in bottiglia, le quali narrano i suoi viaggi, unicità di esperienze e universalità di sentimenti. L’ itinerante universo di odori di Meo, le sue due fragranze che compongono la Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” e “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)”, ha dialogato con il minimalismo e l’ artigianalità di OFFICINE 904, eclettica factory e brand toscano di accessori e gioielli creato da Paolo Porcu Rodriguez e Silvia Pavanello – il quale promuove e concretizza felicemente un libero dialogo tra arte, moda, design e architettura, dando vita a idee in movimento, segni simboli, superfici e forme che diventano progetti e prodotti, storia ed esperienze che disegnano il lifestyle e gusto italiano – che era presso ospitato la factory Menexa. L’ approccio materico di Myriam B., che trae ispirazione dalla natura, da fiori e coralli che vengono rielaborati mediante aspecifiche paillettes, piume e pietre dure in cui splende una brillante artigianalità, è stato abbinato alla terza fragranza che parla dell’ odore dell’ amore e compone la trilogia di viaggio di Meo Fusciuni,  “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, soave dialogo valorizzato dalle leggiadre atmosfere dell’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche di Davide Raciti. La poesia di Anna Porcu in cui fascinazioni del passato, concretizzate da un gioiello, il cammeo, diventano contemporanee e si fondono con la pelle e l’ argento, si è unita alla musica o meglio alle creazioni del liutaio Michel Eggiman ed agli effluvi di Meo Fusciuni ovvero le due fragranze che compongono il Ciclo della poesia. Luci e ombre, nostalgia e amore, i protagonisti di due profumi, “Notturno” e “Luce” che hanno fatto parte di una delicata installazione olfattiva. Una miriade di segni, artigianalità, arte, unicità e sperimentazione che immortala la moda come esperienza totale e stile di vita. Un’ incantevole interludio pomeridiano che è stato addolcito dall’ esperienza del gusto di una rinomata casa vinicola siciliana, Tasca d’ Almerita unitamente alle creazioni di Bocca di Dama.

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.

The fifth edition of Floracult, event celebrating the nature and its culture, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai – which was held in the Rome countryside, at La Storta, in I Casali del Pino -, opened with a series of smashing initiatives as the talk moderated by the journalist and author Ida Tonini starring Meo Fusciuni, modern alchemist who talked about his experiences with herbs, scents and his brand of artistic perfumery.

Meo, nice and bright individual, who seemed me like the cousin of Fabio Quaranta (brilliant fashion designer and professor at the Iuav University of Venice). That became his second nick name adding to Meo Fusciuni, art name chosen by Giuseppe Imprezzabile, Sicilian man who is based in Salsomaggiore, of whose the family name Fusciuni arises from the Sicilian slang and stands as “to flow”. Meo told about his relationship with the scents, experience arisen for random. He studied chemistry, then worked with disabled people, became herbalist and later started studying anthropology and travelling. His scents have arisen during his journeys. Passion, love and nostalgia are some emotions the lack of love as it happened with “Notturno” and “Luce”, two fragrances that embodied the feelings of Meo, the nostalgia for his love, her life companion Federica Castellani, who were far away from him and her return, celebrate his love for her, featuring the warmth and sensuality of patchouli (one of my favorite fragrances along with vetiver and opoponax), spicy notes that are sweetened by tonka. Olfactive experiences and alchemic moments, connected to poetry and magic suggestions under the sign of Crowley’s experiences (another thing confirming the spiritual connection to Fabio Quaranta, his love for the bands that are Crowley inspired as Psychic TV, Coil and Current 93).

Flowers, plants, little, big animals, delights as the licorice by Amarelli, creations inspired by nature where the alchemies by Floracult, dressed up by such a loving and genuine atmosphere which had a kind of magic. The warm welcome of place, kindness and congeniality of people I saw made all that marvelous, relaxing and fun.

Meo, simpatica e brillante individualità che mi sembrava il cugino di Fabio Quaranta( brillante fashion designer e docente presso l’ Università Iuav di Venezia). Questo è diventato il suo secondo nick name che si aggiunge a Meo Fusciuni, nome d’ arte scelto da Giuseppe Imprezzabile, siciliano che risiede Salsomaggiore, il cui cognome deriva dal dialetto siciliano e sta a significare “scorrere”. Meo ha raccontato del suo rapporto con i profumi, un’ esperienza nata per caso. Ha studiato chimica, ha poi lavorato con i disabili, è divenuto erborista e poi ha iniziato a studiare antropologia e viaggiare. Le sue fragranze sono nate durante i suoi viaggi. Passione, amore e nostalgia sono alcune delle emozioni da loro ritratte. Infatti “Notturno” e “Luce” racchiudono la nostalgia per il suo amore, la sua compagna di vita Federica Castellani che era lontana e il suo ritorno, celebrano l’ amore per lei ed hanno quali protagonisti la calda sensualità del patchouli(una delle mie fragranze preferite unitamente a vetiver e opoponax), note speziate addolcite dalla fava tonka. Esperienze olfattive e momenti alchemici, legati alla poesia ed a magiche suggestioni crowleyane (un’ alltra prova che conferma la parentela spirituale con Fabio Quaranta, il suo amore per le band che si ispirano a Crowley quali Psychic TVCoil e Current 93).

Una felice esperienza, unita ad altri eventi che parlavano di natura, arte e artigianalità. Il mondo delle farfalle è stato ritratto da “Patma”, la performance di Sacha Turchi che ha narrato la nascita delle farfalle e “La memoria degli oggetti” di Pablo Mesa Capella che ha creato contenitori di ricordi e poesia.

Fiori, piante, piccoli, grandi animali, delizie come la liquirizia di Amarelli, creazioni che si ispirano alla natura erano le alchimie di Floracult, condite da una atmosfera estremamente amorevole e autentica che aveva qualcosa di magico. La calda accoglienza del luogo e la gentilezza e simpatia delle persone che ho incontrato ha reso tutto ciò meraviglioso rilassante e divertente.

It comes back Floracult, event celebrating the nature and its culture, ideated by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai which will be held from 25th to 27th April 2014 at the Casali del Pino, at La Storta in the Rome countryside where it will feature many initiatives under the sign of art, culture and sustainability. 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.

Piante, fiori e farfalle questi i temi di alcuni i talk quali quello che avrà luogo il 25 aprile alle ore 11:00, di cui sarà protagonista il naso o meglio ricercatore della memoria olfattiva Meo Fusciuni che, accompagnato dalla scrittrice e giornalista Ida Tonini, parlerà di piante e profumi. Seguirà alle ore 12:30 la presentazione del libro “A rose is a rose”del fotografo e giornalista Luca Bracali che svela l’ intima bellezza di un fiore e racconta l’ esperienza di una famiglia di vivaisti che da quattro generazioni unisce ricerca e sperimentazione. Alle ore 17:00 l’ entomologo Gianumberto Accinelli parlerà de “L’ effetto farfalla” ovvero la creazione di “corridoi ecologici” mediante ortiche, finocchi e carote, per portare le farfalle dalla campagna alla città e insieme a lui il fotografo Stefano Nicolini presenterà un progetto espositivo incentrato sulla farfalla Monarca che è in grave pericolo di estinzione.

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. Un evento imperdibile per tutti coloro che amano o vogliono riscoprire la natura e la sua cultura.
