Modo - Inauguration of the "Slow Park" in Cervia
In Pinarella di Cervia, Italy, the “Slow Park” has been recently inaugurated: a park dedicated to the natural rights of girls and boys, with the installations of play equipment of the series Science Park designed by Tobia Repossi and produced by Holzhof Modo with the landscape design of Aida Morelli.
The created park consists of 6 thematic areas with playful-relational installations inspired by the UN Convention on the Rights of Childhood and Adolescence and in Cervia-Child Friendly City.
August 5th 2020 the Municipality of Cervia broadcasted the virtual inauguration of the Slow Park live on Facebook with the presence of Aida Morelli.
The created Slow Park consists of 6 thematic areas with playful-relational installations inspired by the UN Convention on the Rights of Childhood and Adolescence and in Cervia-Child Friendly City.
The Slow Park's play installations are designed with the idea that urban quality for children in an urban contest is made of concrete experiences: spaces and times for free circulation and play, educational activities in a healthy environment, with cultural and leisure opportunities. The chance to express themselves is necessary to children for training and participation, connected with a "natural" relationship with the environment.
These inclusive games create, in a free way, a dialogue with the Pinewood of Pinarella and Tagliata and, at the same time, become triggering devices for natural rights through play, involving children in a magical, imaginative, empathetic and innovative way.
Being together with others in a public space to create relationships: relationships are an element of well-being for the individual and for society, we found this to be true during the recent months. The Slow Park is intended to be a place of meeting of people and social exchange both for the citizen and the visitor of the city.
The "Slow Park" is a journey into the landscape that goes through a transformation, where it is possible to tune into the rhythms of the landscape that surrounds us and into nature. Using the inclusive games Holzhof Modo, designed for a relational, free and inclusive use by all, you can listen, observe, touch or run, letting your senses free.
The "Park for the Natural Rights of Girls and Boys" was born from the initial need to restore part of the coastal pine forest of Pinarella, seriously damaged by a storm in 2015 🌳🌞 It also aims to be an inclusive park, in other words a park for everyone! Landscape care is community care: this is the "Park for the natural rights of girls and boys" 🧒👧
All the installations are part of the new line Holzhof Modo - Design is a game
