Green Prato. Urban experiments between ecology and reuse

The exhibition Verde Prato, curated by Elisa Cristiana and Emilia Giorgi, will open at the Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci on Tuesday 19 March at 6.00 pm.
It is anexperimental and innovative project, the result of intense team work by the Municipality of Prato’s Planning Office which boasts of valuable contributions from international experts such as the architect Stefano Boeri and the scientist Stefano Mancuso, to mention just a few.
The exhibition design, by the collective Fosbury Architecture, will present heterogeneous materials such as drawings, maps, design documents, historical photos and video through a scaffolding system conceived of as a scenic machine.
A tale that unfolds through texts and images along the creative process that aims to transform Prato into a green, European and open city, integrating the nature system with the built environment.
In addition to the focus on town planning aspects, the exhibition will present an installation devised for the occasion by Stefano Mancuso, photographic projects by talents such as Fernando Guerra, Maurizio Montagna and Delfino Sisto Legnani, and an interactive robotic machine that allows the public to navigate the various elements of the Plan.
The exhibition is completed by an area designed as a meeting spot and a space for taking part in educational activities, conferences and round tables, turning the exhibition into a place of debate, a living square inside the museum.
