In the context of VARCITIES, the University of Padova, pilot expert for Castelfranco Veneto, has organised a series of webinars that introduce the audience to the different topics addressed by the project.
The first edition organised on 11th November 2021, was the occasion to meet Dr. Sue Stuart-Smith, who introduced her book ‘The Well Gardened Mind: the restorative power of nature’, which has been recently published in Italian by Rizzoli as ‘Coltivare il giardino della mente: il potere riparatore della natura’. Her book, The Well Gardened Mind, a bestseller of the Sunday Times, analyses the relationship between gardening, nature, and mental health.
The presentation by Sue Stuart-Smith was in English and a simultaneous translation in Italian was given by the horticulturist Eleonora Giuliodori, a graduate of the the University of Padova in Forest Sciences.
The recording of the event is now available on the VARCITIES page on the TESAF Department of the University of Padova, Pilot expert for the Castelfranco Veneto Pilot Site. Both the audio and the subtitles are in English and in Italian. You can find it at this link: https://www.tesaf.unipd.it/en/varcities
