THE MASTERS OF LANDSCAPES

Description

September is a very special month for Bergamo: the dresses in green and gets COOL! Squares of the Upper Town and many other symbolic places will host trees and flowers, natural architectures and innovative ideas. A terrific show!

From September 7th to 24th, Bergamo becomes the home of “I Maestri del Paesaggio”, an event focused on landscape that aims to think off the beaten track and re-think territory and nature from an innovative point of view, taking them straight to everyday life.

The seventh edition will be an exclusive event, taking to Bergamo the best landscape architects to create some amazing natural spaces, highlighting the issue of the relationship between man and nature.

This year’s theme: COOL Landscape, where the term cool takes on many meanings: from the refrigeration given by the plants against the stressful heat of cities, to the artist's disdainful attitude in his creations.

And so, in September, you will be able to admire Piazza Vecchia, the pulsating heart of the Upper Town, adorned in floral designs, thanks to the masterpiece by Lodewijk Baljon, an internationally renowned Dutch landscape designer, who will combine singular elements such as a large ice block, a "roof" of balloons and evocative light displays, as a reflection on global warming.

Moreover, other spots of the old city will also surprise you, such as Piazza Mascheroni. “Clubino Square”, as it will be called for the occasion, will make you enjoy a “wild” experience by means of an adventure park specifically designed for kids and families.

Nothing is left to chance in Bergamo: in fact, the city will come in colours to help you enjoy this enchanted atmosphere. Light experts will enlighten historic monuments and buildings, along with the temporary “wild” area, brightened by breath-taking light installations.

However, “I Maestri del Paesaggio” is also related to culture, with the numerous meetings for landscape-enthusiasts with the world experts gathering in Bergamo for this event. Shopping and entertainment are waiting for you on every corner of the streets and the shops of Lower Bergamo, too.

You can meet some of the renowned architects in the beautiful setting of Teatro Sociale.

Moreover, the event will also be a great chance to enjoy the secret gardens of the Upper Town, wonderful private spaces you can visit only on this occasion.

Bergamo’s urban gardens are the most beautiful ever. Come join I Maestri del Paesaggio!
