During the 2011 Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the courtyard of Marni’s Milan flagship boutique on Via della Spiga became a green parlour. Plants traditionally found in Milan’s public parks and private gardens became part of a special landscape project inspired by the history of the city’s green spaces. Each evening during the Salone, the courtyard also came alive with images from Lanterna Magica (Spring), a project created exclusively for Marni by film artist Sara Rossi. A background track of sounds from nature heightened the experience of this magical city garden. At the end of the Salone, the plants were donated to educational projects in schools and the restoration of Milan’s green public spaces.
