Head in the clouds
Theatre “Head in the clouds” (PIT Espace Mont-Blanc, project “Éducation à l’environnement”).
4 August 2012, 9pm, at the Jardin de l’Ange in Courmayeur
The play offered by the Regional Museum of Natural Sciences of Valle d’Aosta, in collaboration with the Compagnia Palinodie with Alice Corni and Giulia Sartore, directed by Stefania Tagliaferri, is taken from the tale “History of the territory of Espace Mont-Blanc” by Claire Eggermont.
It tells the story of a Bearded Vulture which, while looking for his home, makes a journey through the Espace Mont-Blanc territories, meeting a series of animals that will help him understand who he is, what happened to his forebears and what are the habits and fears of those living around Mont Blanc, in the roof of Europe.
The show takes the viewer to discover beautiful landscapes, revealing hidden corners in the Alpine setting, described from the point of view of the enormous and beautiful vultures that dominate the skies of the continent’s highest mountains.
Live-Art in giardino
Live-art in giardino (Progetto Viva-Valle d’Aosta Unica per natura)
I giardini botanici alpini della Valle d’Aosta diventano il suggestivo ed insolito teatro dove soffermarsi a disegnare ed apprendere le tecniche del disegno naturalistico nell’ambito di laboratori artistici a diretto contatto con la natura, per conoscere in modo nuovo questi piccoli scrigni di biodiversità.
Quattro esperienze artistiche, sotto la guida dell’artista Chicco Margaroli,alla scoperta di siti naturalistici unici e privilegiati che utilizzano carta, grafite, colori, ma anche elementi recuperati in loco, mezzi per scoprire punti di vista insoliti, capaci di rivelare particolari meno evidenti del giardino, vero e proprio spazio scenico che può ispirare la sensibilità artistica di ognuno.

Workshop “The Value of Biodiversity”

The event, referring to the creation of the Regional Observatory of Biodiversity, an active instrument for preserving biodiversity forming part of the VDA Nature Métro project, aims to promote the enhancement and attentive usage by tourists of sites of special wildlife value in the region.
The workshop is an opportunity for examining and reflecting on aspects relating to biodiversity, presenting the Observatory of Biodiversity of Valle d’Aosta, and to compare with the other Italian Observatories of Biodiversity in the national network.
The event was attended by the Ministry for the Environment and the Protection of Land and Sea, the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources of the Autonomous Region of Valle d’Aosta, representatives of other Italian regions, university professors and spokespeople of research centres from Italy and abroad, together with the TV reporter Davide Demichelis as a wildlife communications expert.
Journey in the landscapes of Espace Mont-Blanc
Exhibition “Journey in the landscapes of Espace Mont-Blanc”
from 24 February 2012 to 23 September 2012, at the Tour de l'Archet in Morgex
The exhibition, organised as part of the project “Education à l’environnement: connaître et comprendre les territoires de l’Espace Mont-Blanc” by PIT of Espace Mont-Blanc, was conceived and coordinated by the Regional Museum of Natural Sciences of Valle d’Aosta (Italy), in collaboration with the Centre de la Nature Montagnarde of Sallanches (France), the Fondation Tissières of Martigny (Switzerland) and the Fondazione Montagna Sicura of Courmayeur (Italy).
The exhibition offered to visitors an overview of the most beautiful landscapes of Espace Mont-Blanc, seen through the eyes of various environmental specialists and more: shapes and volumes of the mountains are the object of the geologist’s attention; the anthropogenic footprint on the natural environment are interpreted by the geographer by means of analysing manmade areas and infrastructures; information on the biological component of the landscape, all the flora, fauna and vegetation, are tracked by the eye of the naturalist. A fourth point of view is that of the artist who interprets the landscape with an unconventional genius.

The exhibition involves moments of observation and discovery, and animations, laboratories and workshops run by the schools of secondary schools, according to the for education method.
The Museum has contributed to the exhibition by setting up three tables focused on “Biodiversity in Motion” (observing samples of seeds and fruit for discovering the various systems plants use to spread themselves), “Pages of Biodiversity” (the diversity in the vegetal world with observation of dried plant samples) and “Traces of Biodiversity” (analysis of the biodiversity in a natural environment by recognising biological traces and feeding of various animals in that environment).
In the period from December 2010 to February 2011, the travelling exhibition stopped in various towns in the region.
