Art in nature

A special walk like an immersion through Bergamo landscape made by earth and light, culture, nature and architecture led by two exceptional protagonists: the Norwegian artist Jan Erik Sorenstuen, which will show us his Land Art installation, and Mr. Casati who will lead us to the knowledge of his Roccolo, wonderful construction of plant architecture.

7-25 September

The Roccolo Casati (or Tavernella) is one of the most beautiful plant architectural structures in the Parco dei Colli, the result of years of the Casati family's diligent and skillful work. The Roccolo was a bird capture plant defined by two concentric rows of black and white hornbeam trees, which supported and masked hunting nets for catching. There were fruit trees and berries in the middle, decoy birds in cages and a hunting lodge hidden by vegetation. Once used for hunting, the Roccolo Casati was then a birds observatory for the Lombardy region from 1986 to 1998. Today the Roccolo Casati continues to be a place of passage for many birds, as part of the migration routes.

       

The activities have been organized with the support of Solco Città Aperta, a local guild of social enterprises, and the landscape designer Paola Innocenti.
