From November 19th to December 8th, in the historical center, in the suburbs and in the hills, many interesting opportunities for adults and children will take place on the occasion of the Festa degli alberi 2016 (Arbor days 2016), initiative of the Comune di Bologna and Fondazione Villa Ghigi.

Exhibitions, walks, excursions, workshops, meetings, talks, courses, readings, performances, dances, songs, feasts and tree planting.

A tradition which is connected with the Arbor Day originated in the United States in 1872 and celebrated on 21st November in Italy as "Giornata Nazionale degli Alberi".

In the past years various tree types have been planted in the green spaces of the schools and also this year new trees will be planted.
But the edition 2016, with the contribution of passion and ideas by many participants in the town, consists of a rich and creative programme of events (60 in total)


During the "Festa degli alberi" you can contribute to the program Radici, the crowdfunding campaign promoted by Comune di Bologna for the planting of new trees in the city.
