Chiara Appendino, current Mayor of Torino, was among the first signatories of the weTree pact.
In the Fergat Garden, in front of the headquarters of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, an internationally recognized exhibition center on contemporary arts in Torino, new trees will be planted, establishing a small wood dedicated to female artists chosen through a public contest. The Educational department of the Foundation will take care of this wood, carrying out activities and workshops for children, families, adults and vulnerable people.
Belonging to the Magnoliaceae, it is a species native to Northeastern United States. The specific denomination tulipifera
refers to its fragrant flowers, similar to tulips, that appear in June. Its leaves are simple, quadrilobate, with entire margin, similar to the lyre, string instrument often mentioned in Greek mythology.
