Based on an idea and exhibition project by the National Mountain Museum (Museo Nazionale della Montagna "Duca degli Abruzzi") in Turin, the Tree Time exhibition lends voice to the languages of art for new vision, management and care of trees, woods and forests.
Trees are our biggest ally in maintaining the climatic and atmospheric equilibria of the planet. They cover almost 30% of the earth's surface and many form the fascinating complex ecosystems that are forests. A deterioration in forest conditions inevitably also reflects on our quality of life, exposing us to increasing uncertainty and unexpected events every day. In response, we are seeing an emergence of a new awareness of the impact that human interference has on natural ecosystems and the urgent need to rebuild forms of sustainable coexistence for the future.
