We are pleased to invite you on Saturday 18 November to a autumn event in the open air to discover the world of mushrooms, a mycology laboratory at the Hortus Urbis.

Mushrooms represent one of the most unknown and fascinating kingdoms. Their knowledge intertwines local traditions as well as the scientific approach. Mycology is a science, which like mushrooms, involves various subjects, in order to provide explanations for the particularities of this kingdom.

With the laboratory we will discover the world of mushrooms through the use of the senses, guided by sight, smell, touch, taste and even hearing. We will learn to listen to what this kingdom has to tell us to understand their importance for the environment and for human beings.

We will experiment with some practical techniques and the theoretical sphere to discover this world.

Alessandra Senettin, mycologist and sociologist, will guide us on this journey.
