The magic of Fil de Fer at the Radicepura Garden Festival

Written by Redazione |

27 October 2017

We are in Sicily, at the foot of Etna, the Vulcan where, many centuries ago, myths and legends arose to change our perception of that landscape full of charm and identity of the West. 

The Radicepura Garden Festival was held amidst those scents and colours. This was the first international event dedicated to garden design and the architecture of the Mediterranean landscape, within the Radicepura botanical garden of Giarre. 

Here, four famous garden designers such as James Basson, Kamelia Bin Zaal, Michel Péna and Stefano Passerotti, as well as talented young landscapers from different countries around the world, staged fourteen extraordinary gardens

Among the installations present at the festival, the green space of the 'errant gardener' Donatello Chirico, was a great success among the critics also thanks to the presence of the Catellani & Smith’s iconic Fil de Fer

The lamp, with its twisted wires and light points, responded entirely to the needs of Chirico's installation, a genuine investigation into the relationship between Etna and the Mediterranean, and integrated into plant geometries with balance and elegance. 

Nevertheless, the surprise came at sunset, when Fil de Fer showed its utmost splendour, offering itself to the enchanted eyes of the visitors and created a surreal or, almost authentically mythical atmosphere.
