The history of the Japanese garden. Borrowed landscapes and disordered harmonies

MAXXI Auditorium
Admittance free subject to availability of places

A series of events devoted to the culture of the Land of the Rising Sun through the history of the Japanese garden in its poetic stylistics variations and the ancient Japanese art of Ikebana.

The landscaper architects Fukuhara and Tsujii, connoisseurs of Ken Nakajima, reveal the rules of the Japanese garden and their tacit subversion. Numerous gardens were created by Ken Nakajima, including the two authentic Japanese gardens in Rome, the historical and operational aspects of which will be examined by Paco Donati of the Botanical Garden of Rome.
