What is the BLG Institute?

The agreement signed between the Lombardy Region, the Bergamo Town Council, the University of Bergamo, the Lombardy Foundation for Environment and Arketipos, on July 25 2016, reslted in the birth of the Bergamo Landscape and Garden Institute. The Institute focuses on the issue of the landscape as a key concept to understand the dynamics across territories and for the building of a conscious and active citizenship – as an aid to institutions – in the management and use of the territory.

The theme of the landscape is particularly expressive and fertile in the territorial context of Bergamo for its distinctive environmental, urban structure and the dynamics that characterize the territory of Bergamo within Lombardy. Bergamo has landscaping resources to identify it as a laboratory of extraordinary interest in applied research and training on the subject.

The objectives of the BLG Institute work to activate landscaping and landscape interpretation paths with multiple and inter-disciplinary vision: geo-historical reading, plant landscape, traditional assets, urban dynamics (with project ideas that can also be experimented on the field), valorization of spaces and territorial environment issues in the urban context, urban regeneration processes that promote unpublished practices of the public and private space project, application of participatory and collective planning methodologies.

The aim of the Bergamo Landscape and Garden Institute is therefore to promote a landscape culture and to create an institution that is of international excellence, attended by teachers, students and visitors from all over the world. A point of reference for Landscape Architecture.
