🇮🇹 Vieni a vivere un’esperienza unica alle prime luci dell’alba: il 10 luglio Food Wave celebra la festa della mietitura del grano con una suggestiva performance artistica nei campi di farro a Chiaravalle, Milano – luogo simbolo della rinascita agricola e della transizione ecologica della città.

Il collettivo Phoebe Zeitgeist darà vita alla performance artistica “Persephone Overland” per raccontare un rituale antico che scandisce il tempo e rinnova il legame tra l’uomo e la terra, nel rispetto del ciclo naturale delle stagioni.

Un progetto a cura di Forme Tentative e Terzo Paesaggio per Food Wave – tra i sette premiati da Comune di Milano con la call for proposals per street actions.
