Chestnut environment - Travelling exhibition
The chestnut tree is here presented in its different aspects, starting from the ground, the undergrowth, the landscape and from its biodiversity:
- habitat tree, for its ability to accommodate a multitude of living organisms, in and out, above and below;
- cosmic tree, connection axis between the underground world, earth and the sky, symbol of the “Mother” in the ancient pagan worships;
- tree of the bread, fulcrum on which in ancient times the entire life of mountain communities was rotating, especially on the Apennines, in which forests this tree thrived luxuriant.
The exhibition aims to highlight the sustainability of this traditional culture which is limited in Trentino to a few areas characterized by a particular soil, and precisely because of its fragility deserves to be better known, protected and encouraged.
