Wednesday November 6 at the essential store of Campomarzio70 there will be an exclusive event in which we will be present along with Mika Otani sensei.

The Maison Floraïku has produced a series of high class perfumes dedicated to ikebana (each of them accompanied by a specially designed haiku) and the essential store Campomarzio70 has decided to involve us in the official presentation of this line of truly spectacular perfumes. Once again, we represent Sogetsu ikebana in Rome in such a prestigious space.

From Tuesday 5 in the essential store there will be some of our arrangements inspired by this line of perfumes while on the 6th evening guests who want to intervene will also be greeted by an arrangement that the teacher Otani will realize for the occasion.

After the wonderful experience of Essenza we return again to this particular paradise of perfumes a stone’s throw from Piazza di Spagna to talk about the unique path that unites ikebana with the world of perfumes.

For anyone who wants to, we will be available, ready to welcome you, from 7.15 pm onwards.

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.

I fiori d’arte – Vernissage – Rome – Aprile 8, 2018

Rome – Aprile 8, 2018 H.18.30 – 23.30

Borgo Angelico 18A

Sunday, April 8 at the Apres club will be held the opening of the ikebana exhibition by Lucio Farinellii and Luca Ramacciotti, leaders of the Concentus Study Group. The masters, together with the teachaer Anne Justo, will guide us towards ‘the way of flowers’, a splendid path that proposes seven works witnessing the continuous and fruitful dialogue between art and nature, as masters of the universe. Ikebana is an art regulated by ancient traditions and poetic symbolism, so we will immerse ourselves in the infinite shades of flowers.
“Ikebana should not be considered a fixed object.
Ikebana is constantly fluctuating.
You should not give ikebana a shape.
Ikebana has a new shape for every new Era.”
(Hiroshi Teshigahara)”

Club Après, Borgo Angelico 18a.
Reduced price admission (18.30 – 20.30): 3 euro
