Second Provincial Conference on the Landscape

The management of the landscape

5 May - 5 May

“The second provincial Conference on the Landscape uses a double approach – on the one hand an exploration of the relevant laws and policies, on the other an examination of practical experience and applied knowledge – to offer administrators, operators, technicians and citizens the opportunity to look at the protection and valorisation of our landscape heritage from a new viewpoint.”

Lakes garden in Europe

Lakes and gardens. Lakes between illusion and reality. Knowing and appreciating the value of the lake landscape in Italy and Europe

6 October - 7 October

“This prestigious International Conference, organised by the Villa and Garden Archive of the Museo del Paesaggio, looked at the theme of lake gardens on a European scale. Authoritative speakers from Italy and abroad gave different interpretations of the theme, from its literary and philosophical implications to geographic and botanical analyses, not neglecting the aspects of conservation and appreciation of the value of the gardens.
At the end of the Conference the ICOMOS-IFLA Document for a census and catalogue of historic gardens was presented.”

The gardenerís craft

Knowledge and techniques for historic gardens

23 October - 24 October

“This International Conference dealt directly with the practical aspects of gardening, rather than dwelling on abstract or literary themes.  It is unthinkable to plan to restore historic gardens without tackling the problem of training those who actually have to do the complex work of restoration – the gardeners. The speakers illustrated the current state of teaching gardeners in the various centres of instruction where gardening is taught.”

The garden landscapes of Lake Maggiore

From knowledge to protection and appreciation of their value

7 September - 7 September

“A Conference focusing on the landscaping complex made up of the large number of villas with gardens which lie all along the western shore of Lake Maggiore, forming a valuable heritage which was constructed at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries by sections of society which were largely from outside the local community.  
With reference also to the problems of protection and appreciation of the value of this landscape.”
