Horti, on the second anniversary since its opening, will be hosting the 'Horti Aperti' event for the third year running. The market exhibition, located in the 'Community of Trees' of the Horti park, will focus on the theme 'the forest and the garden'.


Horti Aperti intends to address the themes of ecology and the quality of life in the city and to combine "knowledge" - meetings and conferences - with the "know-how" of those who live the world of greenery in a responsible manner, including great gardeners, nurserymen and experts.

Horti includes a Study Centre, coordinated by Prof. Clelia Martignoni, which aims to build, through various initiatives and meetings, interdisciplinary dialogues between different knowledge and perspectives on the complex, 'perennial' and topical theme of living. These initiatives are also aimed at enhancing the third mission activity and the College's relationship with the territory, in order to foster new experiences of training, education, reflection, inclusion and social aggregation, under the banner of connecting knowledge in rigorous inventive forms, with the intention of bringing together salient aspects and moments of ancient, modern and contemporary culture.

Different disciplines are called upon in a diachronic and synchronic dialogue: literature, art, history of ideas and thought, anthropology, psychology, theology, history, law, science and technology, in the construction of a Triennial centred on a unifying theme that brings together several perspectives, several periods, several cultures, several approaches: a 'knowledge laboratory' that creates connections of knowledge and induces critical visions and new awareness.
