Villa dei Vescovi and the Treehouses
The perfect place for a beautiful event on a warm sunny day !
The exhibition has been set up on the second floor in the piano nobile. Two tables in the main room desplay the drawings and the models of the treehouses drawn by the children of the elementary school G. C. Moschini who took part of a workshop held by the artistic group ‘How we Dwell’. On another table there is a laptop where it is possible to read my blog, Hometreehome. In the next rooms, there is a photographic and illustration gallery of treehouses.
At 11.30 the official opening took place with the inaugural address of Silvia Ferri, Villa dei Vescovi manager. She introduced the Director of IED, Igor Zanti, and the designers/curators of the exhibition Chiara Caroli and Elena Sartorello.
Personally I found the conference very interesting, but maybe this could be a first conference, where the tree, the main structure and protagonist of the treehouse, is introduced and then other conference about the treehouses. What are they? Why all the people are so fascinated by them? Which is the story of the treehouses?
After the conference I could speak for a while with Nicolò, his treehouse’s model has been considered the best one and he told me that there’ll be his treehouse and another part planned by a friend of him. And there’ll be a ramp or maybe a slide to reach the treehouse.
