BREATHE - RESPIRO is the theme of the 9th edition of the Festival of Green and Landscape, the most famous green
expo in Italy from 10 to 12 May 2019 in the fascinating setting of the Hanging Garden of the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, conceived and organized by Altri
Paesaggi in collaboration with the Auditorium Parco della Musica.
Breathing, the mechanical and unconscious action to which we entrust the survival, is the common thread, and the trees and plants for their fundamental role in human life are the main theme around which the whole festival revolves: through its competitions , temporary gardens, plants, design, architecture, conferences and workshops we intend to explore the relationship between Man, Nature and the City, the trinomial along which the future of human life will be declined.
The urban aggregates, in fact, are destined to grow out of all proportion, thus increasing emissions of polluting gases
and global warming in the so-called urban climate, characterized by high temperatures both day and night.
Therefore, the crucial challenge will be the creation of ever larger and denser urban green areas, real "urban forests", able to reduce air temperature, regulate water flows, purify the air from toxic gases. and mitigate climate change.
The urban forest becomes a source of inspiration, model and tool for designers and architects that increasingly incorporate, in the interiors and exteriors of the buildings, important quantities of vegetation, no longer merely for decorative purposes, but giving them the role of system living breathing.
The visitor is accompanied along a path free from schemes and conventions on the need for a culture of Green in the contemporary debate, a participant
in the dialogue between architecture and nature, between the city left behind and the Green.
Through the language of landscape architecture, the Festival encourages us to reflect on the need for a radical change in our relationship with Green, which involves communities and those who manage them, daily choices and long-term ones. Observe and listen to Nature to understand how to solve the problems that are increasingly testing its balance.
A concrete example is "Airship.03 - Fontana d'aria", the climate-landscape installation organized by Austria Turismo and signed by the collective breathe.earth.collective, which welcomes guests to the Festival. An invitation to a real "bath in the forest", an exhortation to the reforestation of the cities, one of the virtuous trends that define the urbanism of the twenty-first century.
The Festival will therefore be an unmissable opportunity to examine the human inclination to dialogue with Nature and an invitation to
consider Green not as a luxury, but as a primary need and an essential design tool for our life and that of future generations
A rare opportunity, able to give the visitor an engaging and fun experience that at the same time invite you to reflect on the contribution that each of us is able to give to the quality of the air and the temperature of the planet
