Botanica Temporanea, Manifattura Tabacchi Firenze
Botanica Temporanea is an exhibition-laboratory curated by Antonio Perazzi for the Manifattura Tabacchi in Florence (Italy). The intervention is based on the philosophy of low maintenance gardens that emerge spontaneously in the urban environment, capable of improving the quality of life and redeveloping the landscape.

Getting lost in Masone Labyrinth
Masone Labyrinth is a cultural park built near Fontanellato, in the province of Parma. It extends for seven hectares and includes a labyrinth made of bamboos of different species (the largest in the world of this kind) and spaces hosting Franco Maria Ricci’s art collection and his publishing house. The labyrinth was designed by Parma-based publisher and designer Franco Maria Ricci, who worked with architects Pier Carlo Bontempi and Davide Dutto. The labyrinth has a star-shaped perimeter and, in addition to the classic right angles and the subdivision into districts, it is inspired by the classic form of the Roman labyrinth and has small traps, forks and dead ends, all in an area of 8 hectares in which to get lost inside a large maze of 20,000 bamboos of 20 different species, from dwarf to giant ones, whose height ranges from 30 centimeters to 15 meters.
Onirical Rhapsody at La Fondation Maeght
La Fondation Maeght is not a museum. It was born from the desire for a place in which Aimé and Marguerite Maeght could present modern and contemporary art in all its forms; and where their artist friends could visit to create and exchange ideas as much as to exhibit work. Sert created La Fondation hand in hand with the Maeghts, Miró and a number of artists, who gave life to some of its main features: the sculpture garden entrance; the Giacometti Court; buildings wrapped around patios; a bell tower for the chapel and a home studio. Architect Josep Lluís Sert designed a vast and impressive studio for his friend and fellow Catalan, the surrealist artist Joan Miró, in Palma de Mallorca in the 1950s. It was this sculpture-like architecture that led Aimé Maeght, Miró’s gallerist and editor since 1947, to entrust his major project to Sert: the creation of the first private foundation dedicated to the visual arts in Europe.
