Il giardino delle 12 pietre

I capolavori di 12 Tesori Nazionali Viventi in mostra

Un giardino giapponese composto da oggetti ricchi di significato

In un’evocativa mostra ispirata a un giardino giapponese tradizionale, immaginato e progettato da Naoto Fukasawa, i visitatori scopriranno i capolavori di 12 Tesori Nazionali Viventi giapponesi. Gli artigiani, maestri di abilità tradizionali e stimati in Giappone come parte integrante del retaggio culturale del Paese, sono stati selezionati assieme al rinomato direttore di museo Tokugo Uchida. Le opere d’arte in mostra, tra cui un kimono, un’arpa laccata con la tecnica urushi e un cesto per fiori in bambù, sono esposte in modo semplice ma reverenziale nel magnifico Refettorio Palladiano su 12 blocchi a forma di pietra. Brevi filmati spiegano i processi di lavoro dei maestri che hanno realizzato a mano questi pezzi, talvolta modesti, ma sempre eccezionali.
