Il Giardino delle Intersezioni ( The Intersections Garden) is a chapter of the Wandering fields project presented at Assab One by Studio Ossidiana last April.
The materials-sand, soil, red earth, shells from the Po Valley and Holland – composing the perfect Zen garden were transferred, with the help of the children of the Casa del Sole school, to Parco Trotter where a large flowerbed has been created. The installation consists of a map-world-garden-mandala in which the different materials create intersections, producing new soils to cultivate, monitor and study. An experiment in botany and landscape that children will continue to accompany in the coming years, sowing seeds, taking care of them, and observing which botanical species will grow on different soils.
Il Giardino delle Intersezioni designed to become an experiential and educational pathway developed with teachers, parents and neighborhood communities, a project by Studio Ossidiana produced by Assab One with the contribution of Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industries NL – is an initiative of Municipio 2 – Comune di Milano.
Project realization by Elisabetta Cavigioli / Chainsaw with the collaboration of Franco Beccari, Filippo Ferrario, Pedro Sabbatucci, Pietro Schimmenti
