After the stop of all activities due to the lockdown for the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have rescheduled the initiative devoted to the presentation of the results of the interventions of the EU cohesion policy in the area of the Parco delle Cascine in Florence with walks, meetings and happy hour.
The walk, curated by Tempo Nomade, focuses on the relationship of citizens with this green area, in a historical overview that goes from the Renaissance to the present day. Participants will be accompanied to discover the naturalistic aspects and architectural interventions settled over time: from the Fonte di Narciso, where Shelley wrote his “Ode to the West Wind”, to the former Grand Ducal Stables in Piazzale delle Cascine, now the seat of the PARC Performing Arts Research Centre.
At the end of the day, before tasting dishes of different European gastronomic traditions at the Parc Bistrò, the young artists of the Generation Europe active citizenship project will present Live – Die – Repeat, a site specific performance that focuses on sustainable development.
