"Leonardo's Gardens" is a tribute to the genius of Leonardo da Vinci in the 500th century dedicated to the great master. It is a public itinerary created by Claudia Zanfi and Andrea Liberni, in which botany, architecture, eco-design and nature come together in an unusual program that transforms the Isola Design District into an art garden, with entirely vegetable materials, set up at the external area of the Stecca 3.0.


Dedicated to bees and their extraordinary 'architectural' capacity, the 'Theatre/Landscape Observatory', promoted by Green Island, is a project by the students of Politecnico Milano and TerraViva Organisation (prof. Richard Ingersoll). It’s a space completely made by natural materials and straw, to enjoy music and performances, comfortably seated in the midst of nature, surrounded by trees and artist's hives.
