Special event Hortus Urbis


Miti di fiori, astri e cose che cambiano”

Performance for all

Saturday May 11th 2024

We are pleased to invite you Saturday May 11th to the outdoor Spring activities for children at Hortus Urbis, the garden with solely ancient Roman plants in the Appia Antica Park.

At 4 pm – “STORIE VERDI: miti di fiori, astri e cose che cambiano”

A performance by the LAN-DE-Sì Collective by and with Tomàs Acosta and Francesca Laini

Everything changes! … and is transformed all the time. Landscapes and seasons change, the sun changes its course and even men and women sometimes turn into plants, rocks and bright stars.

A performance that, beginning with Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,” brings children closer to classical myths and to respect that mystery that inhabits Nature in its many changes.

An old philosopher and his curious young pupil rest from their long journey, singing and telling ancient stories of change….

  • Ages from 5 to 99
