Joan Miro once said: "More important than a work of art itself is what it will sow. Art can die, a painting can disappear. What counts is the seed."  

Microcollection is a collection of hundreds of fragments of contemporary artworks started in 1990 by the artist Elisa Bollazzi. The art fragments are saved from oblivion and visible only under a microscope. Microcollection Art sowings activates a process which changes the way we look at the «art system» in a beneficial wait that stimulates creativity and starts thought-provoking spaces in contemplation of a growing art garden.  

On the occasion, the artist Hubert Renard, as a botanist,  wrote  teaching notes which provide subtle, erudite observations, evoking the properties, qualities and virtues of each species planted in the garden.

During the aperitif the Conceptual cake by Elisa Bollazzi will please the palates.
