A “green” installation on the magnificent terrace of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum. Floral workshops for children.
These are the activities that Leroy Merlin and the museum, together with Banca Generali, have realized for the exhibit-market Orticola 2018.
With the support of Zeynep Mesutoglu, a Turkish interior designer, the museum has realized on its terrace an installation that occupies the interstices between flowers and design recalling Turkey. Protagonists are a special tree on which Turkish good luck charms and a cascade of carnations – the floral symbol of Turkey – will be hung. A corner of the loggia will be furnished with Leroy Merlin benches and vases of carnations. The installation on the terrace will be open from the 11th to the 17th of May, 2018, for holders of a Bagatti Valsecchi Museum ticket (free upon presentation of an Orticola 2018 ticket).
Saturday, May 12, at 3 PM and at 4:30 PM, two special workshops (in Italian) for children have been organized: “Little Paper Gardeners.” After a visit to the rooms of the exhibit and the installations, the children together with their families will enjoy an activity centered around flowers. The carnations used for the installation are, in fact, the symbolic flowers of Turkey, so the same flowers will be used in the workshops in which the children will create paper flowers to “plant” in the Leroy Merlin vases.
Leroy Merlin will organize other didactic workshops at market areas in Milan involving transplanting carnations. See the link (in Italian): Link
