In Terni, a day about Leonardo and the relationship between nature and science

Terni – On Friday, September 22, in the Butterfly Garden, at the Environmental Education Center in the San Martino area, a study day dedicated to the personality of Leonardo da Vinci and his ability to understand the relationship between science and nature, with the contribution of leading experts in the field, is scheduled. The opportunity to study and reflect on environmental protection and sustainable development is part of the project “Beauty will save the environment: towards a new earth paradigm”, an integral part of the Umbria Green Festival programme, and promoted by the Garden Club Cultural Association. Tierney, with contributions from the Carette Foundation.

The main objective of this event, with free admission, is to bring citizens, but above all younger generations, closer to a more careful and conscious thinking on the issues of environmental protection and climate change, increasingly emerging and very current.

«For many years – says Daniele Ziparelli, Director of the Umbria Green Festival – our goal, as a festival, thanks to the cooperation with the Garden Club of Terni and Carit, has been to increasingly disseminate information on environmental topics and sustainable development in a new way, making the past a dialogue with the present and the future. That’s why we decided to focus on great figures from the past, like Leonardo, who was able to address the environmental issue many centuries ago in an amazing and visionary way. To do this, we asked for help from great speakers, who know how to engage everyone, but young people in particular, in a crucial aspect of our potential future: the relationship with nature that surrounds us and upon which we live. Life depends.”

The day is divided into two parts of the work: the first part entitled “A stunning decomposto: Leonardo, water as flow and as a mirror” will see the participation of Claudio Strinati as expert in the lesson “Leonardo da Vinci in the History of Art”. In the second part, Carlo Vecchi, Claudio Giorgione, Marco Tirelli and Andrea Cortlezza will speak, who will discuss the topic “Leonardo, engineer, naturalist, artist”.

«The project – continues Ziparelli – is part of a larger urban redevelopment movement, which has already included the Cardeto Gardens and Viale della Rinascita, to implement green spaces for the city, and will also include Tarkett, an important industrial plant in Narni Skalo that is an example of excellence to be appreciated and a model of a circular economy. We also plan to create scholarships for young people, who today very passively face the vital issues of our future, with the aim of encouraging their concrete participation in building tomorrow, which today is partly at risk.
