various times


Under the portico of the Palazzo della Ragione - Bergamo

Four women and four meetings around the city: art, botany, fashion and children's literature in four focuses that will show us the nature and the landscapes we all live in and see. A tribute to our territory, which we must learn to observe, share and respect, with a tribute to Christo's genius and beauty. To not forget.

Storytelling laboratory

September 5th, 2020 - from 4 to 6 p.m.

What does it mean to discover that a space could be transformed into something else? What does it mean to discover a new world? What does it mean to float? With this event the urban furniture, for example a fountain, will become a bridge that leads to the sea. We will climb monuments, go into a forest full of emotions and dive into an ocean. Discovering and rediscovering nature and the surrounding space through the eyes of the protagonists of poetic stories.
Reading tips will be released at the end of the storytelling.

Creative Workshop

September 6th, 2020 from 10.00 to 11.30

Man has always been inspired by nature architecture, tools, fabrics and works of art could testify it. Through a journey into biomimesis, you will discover the secrets of some plants and animals borrowed from great artists of the past and today. Starting from the observation of some plant fragments, a small work of art will come out through creativity.

Itinerant workshop inspired by art and landscape

September 12th, 2020 - from 10.00 to 12.00
Landscape is a complex system of systems, natural and man-made, which tend to balance. Although this is a scientific concept, the sensibility of many artists grasps and returns this theory to us. The city of Bergamo is a splendid example of this complex system with almost intact natural environments on the hills, ecological corridors along the edges, a precious historic city in the Upper Town and a contemporary city in transformation in the Lower Town.

The laboratory proposes a walk to understand what the elements that build the urban landscape are, everyone could look for his own path and feeling, tracing his own colourful walkway, between views, perspectives and points of view. A travel notebook will be created, with sketches, thoughts and matter.


Project by: Alberta Colombo

Laboratory of tissue exploration

September 20 from 10.00 to 11.30
Hide to see better, cover to reveal, investigate shapes and materials, discover natural fabrics chasing your own sensibility to colour and shape. A game of threads and weaves amid nature, gathering natural elements, covering them and reinterpret them with fabrics and yarns, to sew one's own landscape whether it is a garden or a square. Creative interpretation of an object that becomes a space in which you can immerge yourself, memory of a moment, a thread that builds a bond.


Project by: Cristina Gamberoni
Architect and stylist of the brand “Nei Miei Panni”. She loves fabrics, imagining the shape they hide and transforming them into clothes to live.
