IX edition

Arketipos and the Bergamo Town Council present Landscape Festival - I Maestri del Paesaggio, the event dedicated to nature, beauty, landscape and design, scheduled in Bergamo from 5th to 22nd September 2019.

Eighteen days of meetings, workshops, installations, exhibitions, shows, all in keeping with the theme of this new and Ninth Edition: Pioneer Landscape, the celebration of pioneer and spontaneous vegetation that investigates the relationship between man and nature, inviting a reflection dedicated to plants as living entities in continuous movement.

As with every year, the central points of the Event are the International Meeting, which brings to Bergamo the world’s most important exponents of landscape architecture; and the Green Square, an extraordinary green reinterpretation of Piazza Vecchia, designed by a world-famous landscaper and this year entrusted to Luciano Giubbilei. Anglo-Italian landscape architect Giubbilei, three-times Best in Show award-winner at the Chelsea Flower Show, is known throughout the world for the discrete elegance and serenity expressed by the gardens he designs, spaces in continuous evolution that are transformed into places without time, in which culture and nature live in close emotional connection.

“The beauty of the pioneer and spontaneous vegetation sometimes takes over man-made spaces: in the installation in Piazza Vecchia the plants become real devices for observation, presenting themselves as material for a reflection on the landscape, transforming the city’s historic piazza into an undecided space, suspended halfway between City and nature.”
Luciano Giubbilei
