A Great Flo­we­ring of Even­ts

Abitare - - BOOSTER -

It is sur­pri­sing to di­sco­ver how mu­ch flo­wers to­day are the su­b­ject of gro­wing in­te­re­st on the part of the pu­blic of ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tions. Af­ter the great suc­cess of the 2010 In­ter­na­tio­nal Flo­ra Ex­po in Tai­pei, Tai­wan, whi­ch was able to at­tract eight mil­lion vi­si­tors, and the 2014 Qing­dao World Hor­ti­cul­tu­ral Ex­po in Chi­na – set in fu­tu­ri­stic pa­vi­lions de­si­gned for the occasion by the Dut­ch UNS­tu­dio (pic­tu­red) – the­re are now two mo­re ea­ger­ly awai­ted flo­wer sho­ws: the Hor­ti­cul­tu­ral Ex­po An­ta­lya 2016 in Tur­key (de­di­ca­ted in tru­th to a stran­ge cou­pling of “plan­ts and chil­dren”) and the Tai­chung World Flo­ra Ex­po­si­tion 2018/19 in Tai­wan. A si­gnal that needs de­co­ding. A de­si­re for beau­ty, na­tu­re, co­lours, ten­der­ness? Does a new age of flo­wer chil­dren await us? We will find out at the coming ex­pos.

È sor­pren­den­te sco­pri­re quan­to og­gi i fio­ri sia­no og­get­to di cre­scen­te in­te­res­se da par­te del pub­bli­co del­le gran­di espo­si­zio­ni. Do­po il gran­de suc­ces­so dell’In­ter­na­tio­nal Flo­ra Ex­po del 2010 a Tai­pei, Tai­wan, che ha sa­pu­to at­ti­ra­re ot­to mi­lio­ni di vi­si­ta­to­ri, e del ci­ne­se Qing­dao World Hor­ti­cul­tu­ral Ex­po del 2014 – am­bien­ta­to nei pa­di­glio­ni fu­tu­ri­bi­li pro­get­ta­ti per l’oc­ca­sio­ne da­gli olan­de­si UNS­tu­dio (nel­la fo­to) – ora so­no due gli even­ti flo­rea­li più at­te­si: l’Hor­ti­cul­tu­ral Ex­po An­ta­lya 2016 in Tur­chia (de­di­ca­ta in ve­ri­tà al­la stra­na ac­cop­pia­ta “pian­te e bam­bi­ni”), e la Tai­chung World Flo­ra Ex­po­si­tion 2018/2019 a Tai­wan. Un se­gna­le tut­to da de­co­di­fi­ca­re. Vo­glia di bel­lez­za, na­tu­ra, co­lo­ri, te­ne­rez­za? Ci aspet­ta una nuo­va epo­ca da fi­gli dei fio­ri? Lo sco­pri­re­mo al­le pros­si­me Ex­po. (Sa.B)
