2011·Paesaggio coltivato
2-11 September

Focus 2011

Il paesaggio coltivato

The first edition of I Maestri del Paesaggio is dedicated to the profound relationship between wine production and landscape design.
Città Alta – like the cultivation of the grapevine – is an example of the unlimited capacity of man to qualitatively transform the territory: in the first case through the geometry of stones, in the second through the geometry of agriculture.

International Meeting

At the heart of the event is the International Meeting at the Teatro Sociale (3rd and 4th of September), a unique opportunity to hear and meet personalities from the world of landscape design discussing the landscape, gardens.

Green Square

The setup of Piazza Vecchia, where the perimeter is characterized by a formal design, creates rooms that open and close. Inside there is a birch grove with a thick undergrowth of plants, contrasted by box bushes trimmed into spheres. There are long flower beds of blooming herbaceous perennials within wooden enclosures, and these give the impression of a flowering meadow. Complementing this is a lawn to stroll or rest on.
