hanami 2021 botanical garden rome

An itinerary of contemporary art, a dialogue between nature and art, and a picnic! 

On April 17 and 18, 2021 Rome’s Botanical Garden will host the ancient Japanese celebration of Hanami, to observe the extraordinary blooming of the cherry trees in the Japanese Garden. This is the 6th edition of “Hanami at the Botanical Garden” in collaboration with the Institute of Japanese Culture in Rome celebrating the magnificent bloom of the cherry trees that currenlty dominate the Japanese Gardens, under the patronage of the Italy-Japan Foundation. 

From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, the public will be welcomed and walked in small groups to the Japanese Gardens every 10/15 minutes. The tour will last approximately one hour. 

On the itinerary from the entrance of the Botanical Garden to the Japanese Garden, there will be artworks by the students of the Academy of Fine Arts with compositions realized by Ikebana Ohara ALU Study Group. The flower compositions created in the gardens are inspired by the concept of a dialogue between ikebana and sculpture, and they will interact with their surroundings and the exhibited artworks through an accurate selection of vegetal essences.
