In his work, Michele Guido brings out the relationship between architecture, history and the image of nature. This gave rise to the 'garden projects', interdisciplinary projects based on formal analogies between the plant world and scientific research, their geographical origin, migratory flows and the cultural history of their places of origin. A work that I feel is close to the research on nature carried out by Carlo Zauli. The project also has an educational value with the involvement of some young students participating in the MCZ curators' course, realised in collaboration with the Fine Arts Academies of Bologna and Ravenna (Alice Arabia, Isabella Catino, Giada Miino, Giulia Petronio, Carolina Scalas) and the students of the IFTS course (Chiara Casalone, Katiuscia Urbinati).
