A conference by Sensei Lina Alicino Ran-Son on the history of the ikebana Sogetsu in Italy will open the event, the three workshops will follow:
1) Aloe arborescens” – A plant native to Africa that grows easily on the Mediterranean seaside. A material difficult to treat and match; we’ll learn about it with Lucio Farinelli who also used it for the photo published in the book “Ikebana by emotions”.
2) “Ikebana comes out of the closet” – Ikebana and fashion, from a project by Lucio Farinelli developed also in collaboration with the designer Massimo Alba, a workshop in which the container is not a vase but a dummy.
3) “Composition Using Unconventional Material” – Apply the principles of ikebana and the themes of the Sogetsu school to inert material giving it a new identity (Zenei-Bana) with Luca Ramacciotti.
