VOGUE Bambini - - ECO -

NNon è uno scher­zo: nel cen­tro del­la cit­tà, tra i nuo­vis­si­mi palazzi di Por­ta Nuo­va, ha fat­to in­cur­sio­ne la cam­pa­gna! Lo scor­so feb­bra­io, ar­ma­ti di sti­va­li di gom­ma e tan­ta cu­rio­si­tà, ol­tre 5.000 cit­ta­di­ni, tra cui mol­tis­si­mi bam­bi­ni, han­no se­mi­na­to un ve­ro e pro­prio cam­po di gra­no. Mi­la­no come New York: sì, per­ché Wheat­field rap­pre­sen­ta uno spet­ta­co­la­re in­ter­ven­to di Land Art eco­lo­gi­ca già rea­liz­za­to nel 1982 a Bat­te­ry Park City da Agnes De­nes per pun­ta­re l’at­ten­zio­ne su al­cu­ni im­por­tan­ti va­lo­ri sem­pre più tra­scu­ra­ti dal­la so­cie­tà at­tua­le. La con­di­vi­sio­ne del ci­bo e dell’ener­gia, la sal­va­guar­dia del ter­ri­to­rio e dell’am­bien­te, la cre­sci­ta so­cia­le ed eco­no­mi­ca nel ri­spet­to del­la qua­li­tà del­la vi­ta so­no il cuo­re del­la sua ope­ra, che og­gi sta ‘nu­tren­do’ Mi­la­no gra­zie al­la Fon­da­zio­ne Ca­tel­la che, in col­la­bo­ra­zio­ne con Fon­da­zio­ne Ni­co­la Trus­sar­di e Con­fa­gri­col­tu­ra, ha in­vi­ta­to l’ar­ti­sta a far par­te del pro­get­to MiCol­ti­vo.

t’s not a jo­ke: farm­land has in­va­ded do­wn­to­wn Mi­lan amid­st the new sky­scra­pers of Por­ta Nuo­va! La­st fe­brua­ry, ar­med with rub­ber boots and lo­ts of cu­rio­si­ty, over 5,000 ci­ti­zens (in­clu­ding many chil­dren) so­wed a real wheat field. Mi­lan has be­co­me li­ke New York: Wheat­field was a spec­ta­cu­lar exam­ple of eco­lo­gi­cal Land Art that Agnes De­nes crea­ted at Bat­te­ry Park City in 1982 to focus on se­ve­ral va­lues that have been for­got­ten by modern so­cie­ty. Sharing food and ener­gy, pro­tec­ting the land and en­vi­ron­ment, and so­cial and eco­no­mic gro­w­th in respect of qua­li­ty of life are at the heart of her work that is ‘nou­ri­shing’ Mi­lan thanks to Fon­da­zio­ne Ca­tel­la, Fon­da­zio­ne Ni­co­la Trus­sar­di and Con­fa­gri­col­tu­ra, whi­ch in­vi­ted the ar­ti­st for the ‘MiCol­ti­vo. The Green Circle’ project for Ex­po 2015. Whi­le waiting for the har­ve­st, whi­ch will be in ju­ly, you can en­joy a stroll amid­st the ears of wheat.
