Every year since 2011, I Maestri del Paesaggio transforms Bergamo turn into a stage for beauty and nature. The most tangible aspect of this transformation is the Green Squares in Piazza Vecchia.
Each year the square has the stylistic touch of the landscape architect who conceives it and is consistent with the focus of the International Meeting that brings together the world's most important landscapers to Bergamo for two days. This year the theme is COOL LANDSCAPE and great is the wait for an installation that in Baljon’s own words “could develop the theme of coolness in literal terms – a cool temperature and shadows – or reflecting the style and attitude of "cool", indicating ease and elegance. The term is in fact ambiguous. Baljon unveiled some of the key points of his project; accuracy, amazement and environment. The Green Square in fact- looking more as a site-specific installation than a makeover imitating natural landscape- will use tangible and symbolic elements to inspire a reflection on the Global warming".
