BIOLOGICAL AND SOLIDALEL key words of the IX edition of the Fiera di San BenedettoArte, Shows and Flavors in Villa Badia a Leno
Free admission
To enjoy natural flavors and get to know the benefits of organic food for health and the environment, the appointment is in Leno on 9 and 10 July with the IX edition of the Exhibition of Organic and Fair Trade.
This is an appointment that aims to give space to the natural and to enhance the world of bio, which in Italy includes almost 50 thousand producers for over one million dedicated hectares, making the public aware of all the goodness and genuineness of the guaranteed and certified products. A choice that involves more and more people every year, and that is based on trust and the increasing attention paid by consumers to ethics and respect for nature.
The event, which takes place inside the centuries-old park of Villa Badia, is promoted by the Dominato Leonense Foundation and Cassa Padana BCC, with the sponsorship of the Municipality and the Pro Loco of Leno; and relies on the collaboration of "LA BUONA TERRA", the Lombard Association of Organic Farmers.
In addition to the stands of organic producers and fair trade, there will be local artisan schools and voluntary associations.
Musical and entertainment events, which will begin Thursday 7th July with the traditional concert of the Musical Corps “V. Capirola ”, will be the setting for the exhibition market. In particular, Saturday evening will be animated by a multicultural show / parade, to talk about integration and overcoming discrimination starting from the knowledge of the culture of those who live next door; while Sunday evening will be animated by the Group of Popular Dances "Il Salterio".
There is also space for culture with the presentation of the expected results of the archaeological excavation - conducted in the park of Villa Badia by the Superintendency for Archaeological Heritage of Lombardy from 2009 to 2010 - which brought to light new testimonies of the Longobard monastery that once stood here. Furthermore, in the two days of the event, the exhibition "Nature and spirituality", organized by the Martino Dolci Association of Brescia which presents the artists Eugenio Busi and Lino Sanzeni, will be open to the public in the exhibition halls.
Do not miss the attractions for the little ones: the educational farm "Alle Fornaci" will introduce the typical animals of the farmhouses of the past, focusing on the quality of life of our little friends; while the Youth Environment Forum in Cremona will offer playful activities for children and adults that will focus on respecting the environment in which we live.

9 July 2011 Fabriano

Saturday 9 July in Fabriano 50 scarecrows occupy the Poio Gardens to reclaim the green in our cities. Works by as many artists the 50 scarecrows stand as a symbol of a more balanced relationship between city and natural environment.
When man never took his feet off the ground and his eyes from the sky, when the look went beyond the horizon where everything rejoins, when the slow flow of the hours, of the days, of the seasons marked the time, when the worlds of soul were in tune with the rhythms of the universe, when the consciousness of belonging and dependence ruled the everyday, they were there, small thing, to defend the work of every day for survival.
Certainly not to avert the storms, earthquakes and catastrophes, but to keep the birds away.
Those same birds that propagate the seed in the natural environment, not conditioned by the human presence, giving life to "spontaneous" vegetations whose fruits, available to all, are the richness of the earth.
But the man then, more and more bent on looking after his "own" backyard, has stopped, chased away the birds, watched the stars, raised fences and took, forgetting the ancient conscience and burden of the presumption of those who want to feel close to the creator, to build his artificial world.
