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.

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)”
