With this name “Sonne Luna” that puts togetherthe two languages of this wonderful land named Sud Tyrol, we welcome you to our event which consists of an exhibition, a workshop and a talk in Meran. The event is organised in collaboration with Merano Tourist Office by Concentus Study Group member Patrizia Ferrari.
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.
