I Maestri del Paesaggio 2018 - Plant Landscape

The 2018 Edition proposes a return from the general to the particular – from the kaleidoscope that the word ‘landscape’ comprises to that which forms the basis of any landscape: plants.
The billions of plants to be found on our planet play a key role in improving microclimatic conditions, in counteracting pollution, in consolidating the soil and in regulating water courses. When they are taken out of their natural habitat and used as natural raw material in the making of a garden, a park, a small or large scale urban landscape, they show an inability to play the protagonist’s role that they had in nature.
Once subtracted from their wild natural habitat or from the domesticated nature of a nursery, in order to become the protagonists of a new life, plants need the support of a conscious and fundamental action: the project.
