Public meeting in telematic mode
At the end of five years of activity of the "Armonie composte" project, in conjunction with the twenty years of the European Landscape Convention, the public meeting Benedict and European identity will be held electronically on 12 December. The landscape between ethics and economics. The project, curated by Gianmario Guidarelli and Elena Svalduz, is the result of an intense collaboration between the University of Padua and the Abbey of Praglia and since 2019 has been supported by the Cariparo Foundation for its commitment to sustainability and care for the territory.
Continuing the broad reflection on the theme of the monastic landscape inspired by the Rule of St. Benedict, in the multiple implications with history and current events, the initiative intends to broaden the horizon of the project by focusing on the man-nature dialogue carried out in the Benedictine tradition, which in turn refers to the relationship with the environment and territories, the quality of life, sustainable development. The speakers will illustrate perspectives and experiences gained in their respective research sites, focusing on the short circuit between economy, ethical commitment, social responsibility and environmental care, necessary to achieve these objectives.
Aware of the difficulties of the present and of the challenges that await us for the future, we wish to expand in this new perspective the topics of discussion that revolve around the "Compound harmonies" project using the monastic landscape as a "lens" through which to understand the landscape tout court, but also as a space in which different knowledge and different experiences enter into relationship, reflecting in particular on the existence of possible points of contact between the European spirit of landscape conservation and the monastic tradition.
