An exhibition that stems from the "Landscape Workshop: ideas, practices, art exercises," which saw artists from multiple generations confront each other through a series of meetings on the issues of landscape, diversity, sustainability and resources from scientific and artistic perspectives.
"The outcomes of the raggioverde program we are presenting on this occasion come from the stages of work already carried out in the past months. A methodology is being pursued that unites artists and researchers from the scientific world of the University of Siena, with the intention of discovering and enhancing their respective (sometimes unexpected) points of view on the landscape and its care," explains curator Michela Eremita. "A network of people and intentions is being created that unites more city contexts but also other places dedicated to art and landscape in the other Tuscan provinces."
The exhibition program is not limited to the Santa Maria della Scala museum complex, but will involve artists in other places in the city: the Botanical Garden will see Luca Pancrazzi's intervention, emblematically titled "The Care of the Wild," while the Botanical Museum will display two works by Debora Hirsch on endangered plants of the Tuscan territory. The Museum of Antarctica, on the other hand, will see inside some works by Marco Acquafredda and Michele Guido. Not only that, a collaboration will be initiated with the City of Siena with an important project to be developed that will concern the forest-garden of Villa Rubini Manenti for targeted interventions on this lesser-known place in the city.
