Garden Giants

Open day in the Awai Garden, Santa Croce 201/A, Venice

Saturday 30 September 2023 from 15:30 to 19:00

The Awai garden will host “Giants of the Lagoon”* curated by WahV on 30 September. This special event will focus on the restoration of the precious green lungs of the Venice lagoon - the salt marshes which are fundamental for mitigating tidal currents and waves as well as the effect of wind.

The event is open to all members of the Awai cultural association (membership is on the basis of free contributions and not necessary for children). Reservations are appreciated by writing to info@weareherevenice.org.

* The educational programme "Giants of the Lagoon", supported by WaterLANDS (project with funding from the European Union's Horizon2020 research and innovation programme - Grant Agreement No. 101036484), was developed by We are here Venice in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Sciences of Wageningen University (The Netherlands) and the Giancarlo Ligabue Museum of Natural History in Venice.
