Wheatfield di Agnes Denes
Have you ever seen a wheatfield in the middle of a city? Well in Milan you can. On Saturday 28th February all of you are invited to sow the Wheatfield that has been designed by American artist Agnes Denes. The Wheatfield will cover 5 hectars and is in the new Porta Nuova area. From February until October anyone living in Milan can participate in the various phases of this project: from the sowing to the harvesting of the crop. Simply go to the Giardino Pubblico di Via De Castillia 28 at 14.00 on the 28th.
The next phase will take place on 11 April when the Wheatfield will be officially opened to the public for MIART, the contemporary art fair. In July Milanese and tourists alike will be invited to harvest the crop and partake in the harvest celebrations.
This wonderful event has been sponsored by the Fondazione Riccardo Catella together with the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and Confagricoltura.
