In fact, timber is a sustainable and rapidly renewable source (as long as trees are cut down in an environmentally conscious way); it absorbs Co2 emissions and fights greenhouse gasses. In fact, because of its material qualities and its extreme versatility, timber is ideal in everyday design and construction. During this edition, several interior design brands, packaging firms and joineries serve as proof of this….Indeed, all these firms have in common a passion for this live, natural and timeless material, able to transform any space into an oasis of serenity.
So, let’s all go to Bergamo, to wander around rows of stylised trees on a black cork backdrop; this stands for the renewal of nature after it’s been wiped out by deforestation. Then, take a break in one of the many squares, which have been transformed into rural landscapes (like Piazza Vecchia). Visit the design exhibitions set up in courtyards, cloisters and secret gardens and learn woodworking skills from a number of different artisans. What’s more, you can even attend concerts, ballets and exhibitions.
