Lucio Farinelli e Luca Ramacciotti present 3 workshops exploring “What ikebana can do today”.

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.

Ikebana (“living flowers”) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. While similar western art forms often emphasize the number and the color of the flowers used, ikebana emphasizes the
use of lines and of “empty” spaces. Few flowers and branches suffice to create an artful yet simple and clear arrangement.
Nowadays, ikebana can be included in the visual arts. Its main (but not sole) components are flowers, but materials such as plastic, metal or scrap metal may also be used in floral arrangements.
During the Merano Spring event, an ikebana exhibition and two ikebana workshops are held at Merano’s Thermal Baths and presented by the Concentus Study Group.
