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.
