Un anno su Bricco Carlo (A year on Bricco Carlo) is the result of a series of walks and excursions up and down the tracks, rocks and meadows of Mount (Bricco) Carlo, a small calcareous relief located in the town of Campomorone, near Genova.
The exhibition, set up in collaboration with Associazione E Prie of Pietralavezzara (Genoa), will be opened on 2 April and it will be on view until 29 May in the Pietralavezzara hut on the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri.
Working on this project I have often “wandered lonely as a cloud”, without seeing a living soul. But I have realized how inaccurate it is to say so: in fact I have met a number of living and quivering souls, creatures made of leaves, feathers, petals and wings, scales and barks.
Assisted by some friends attending my courses over the last years, I have drawn up a naturalistic diary illustrating those wonderful creatures.
Among them, 23 species of wild orchids deserve a special event:
Mario Calbi and Stefano Marsili will give a lecture presenting their book Le orchidee spontanee della Liguria, recently published by Il Piviere- Sagep ( 6 May , h20,45).
In alliance with the township of Campomorone, educational workshops with schools will be organized by appointment.
