Once upon a time in a garden…
Fri 10 June, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST
An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until Sat 11 June, 2016
Temporary installation related to the fairytale world.
The magic world of the fairytales helps children to develop their imagination and their capacity to understand what is rational and what is fantastic.
Children learn new words, new linguistic and emotional tools. Children learn how to deal with strong emotions in a protected environment, with their family next to them. Through fairytales children learn what is right and wrong about their behaviours.
The positive outcome of the story and the problems solved by the protagonists instill confidence in life and in the future.
We will arrange two small magic gardens to celebrate the importance of the fairytales for all the children inside the Mary’s Living & Giving Shop for Save the Children. Come and discover them!
The installation is designed by the landscape firm Atelier delle Verdure.
Atelier delle Verdure is a play on words.
Atelier, a boutique or studio, is typically the workshop of artisans.
The French word Verdure is commonly interpreted as greenery, both as urban space or the more traditional countryside landscape or woods.
In Italian Verdure is typically translated as vegetables, something purposefully planted, watered and taken care of until ripe to be eaten.
To us, this is what Atelier delle Verdure represents: a studio that retains a focus on critical small details while executing projects on a grand scale.
