18-20 May Ischia
, on the 18th, 19th and 20th May 2012 the tenth edition of Ipomea del Negombo will take place, a market show of rare and unusual plants in the warm temperate zone.
The opening is Friday 18th May from 3.00pm to 8.30pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 8.30pm.
The exhibition will take place in the Negombo Hydrotermal Botanical Park, on the Island of Ischia.
The main island in the Gulf of Naples is inhabited by 60,000 residents; with 600,000 arrivals and 6,000,000 admissions a year, it is the most important tourist hub in the whole of southern Italy.
The choice of Ischia offers these botanical interests to a large catchment area: Naples, the Sorrento coast, the Amalfi coast and the islands of the gulf are in fact rich in gardens and terraces ideal for hosting plants cultivated by our exhibitors.
Strange times, our times: in them nature, greenery, the garden, together with the ecological and landscape question, enjoy a mass media success, so they seem to have become current. Magazines, conferences, fairs dedicated to this have multiplied. But as we know, we must be wary of appearances. The garden, the greenery, the landscape, nature have only come back into fashion and as such "consumed". They make a "trend" as they say in a way in which the aesthetic dimension of image search have become values to be spent on the market. And today the market offers an infinite amount of plants and flowers from the most different parts of the world: from here the ephemeral fashions of a flower or a tree that last the space of a morning and that do not take into account the environmental context. This is not how the gardens are built and the landscapes are restructured, and it is not so that nature returns to combine with our metropolises and our homes. And this must be particularly said and remembered in our country, which certainly boasts an extraordinary tradition of gardens and is also rich in it, but this wealth is equal to the neglect and neglect of which gardens and landscapes have been and still are objects. Arson fires of forest heritage, mossy trees in the metropolis, in the condominium gardens, gardens and parks containing events and spectacular green areas are the reality in which we find ourselves living. It is with this awareness that Ipomea del Negombo, the market exhibition of rare and unusual plants of the warm temperate zone, on the island of Ischia, now in its tenth edition, promotes the meeting of different operators and enthusiasts of the sector: lovers of rare plants , of those in extinction, artisans who recover the traditional arts, artists who work with nature, growers of plants acclimatizable in the Mediterranean, the world of Lepidoptera in constant dialogue with nature. Work in connection and participation with the Botanical Garden of Naples, a presence to be rediscovered and enhanced. And it accompanies this exhibition with lectures and debates on the quality of the garden and the landscape not only in Italy but in the world. And with it, it also wants visitors to experience the dimension of natural culture that is both ancient and very modern. It responds to the need for a slow time, for quality of life and beauty, of which our country has always been a carrier and which presents itself today as the demand for contemporaneity. The exhibition takes place in an "Edenic" place, the Negombo hydrothermal park, which year after year is becoming a garden of art, the landscape architect Ermanno Casasco introduced Arnaldo Pomodoro's "Arco in cielo", the "Strale "By Lucio Del Pezzo," The Eyes of Nesti and Neri "by Laura Panno, and the" Flight "by Giuseppe Maraniello as an integral part of a landscape art in which the work of art is not simply placed, but it is an integral part of it. The garden is the emblem of living in the sign of beauty. For this Ipomea del Negombo wants to stimulate a new sensibility and a new attitude of affection and responsibility towards nature and the territory to which the collaboration that year after year are agreed with the Botanical Gardens with in-depth Seminars and Exhibitions can make a fundamental contribution. .
