From October 31, 2021, the visit to the Museo di Villa Bernasconi will be enhanced by a new installation: Quotidianità by Francesco Marchini.
The work, made with 500,000 pine needles, represents a path of rapprochement to the environment experienced by a person with a strong allergy to pollen, set in a dark garden under construction. It is the expression of a personal experience of the artist, who, thanks to the positive experience of the artistic work, manages to transform his own negative perception of the environment due to the allergy, rediscovering harmony with the world of nature.
"The repetition of the artistic gesture, consisting in setting thousands of fir needles, thus becomes the creator of a connection, re-establishes an affinity to the earth in which allergy is no longer a pathology, but a connection".
The work is in line with the will of the Municipality of Cernobbio, which has obtained the national brand of environmental quality of "Comune fiorito" (town in bloom), to offer an innovative and original look at nature and is one of the various initiatives proposed on this theme.
The work is part of a series of events promoted by Orticolario until the end of the year and is realized together with the City of Cernobbio with the support of Mantero Seta, the contribution of Wide Group and the technical contribution of TiEvent and Tecnorecuperi and is among the projects presented on the virtual platform Orticolario "The Origin" in October 2020 that will now become reality.
