Back to Rome with 50 Shades of Green, with a new offspring of Canapa Mundi, Canapa Mundi Lite. The event, organized on May 31 + June 1-2 at the Città dell’Altra Economia, within the ex Mattatoio structure of Rome Testaccio, was more a festival of cannabis culture than a cannabis trade show. Very few exhibitors’ stands, and plenty of conferences, music, yoga and massages, chef demos, food trucks and, of course, 50 Shades of Green! More details at the previous blog post announcing the participation of my art installation to the event.
This article is mostly focused on two things – the first is saying thank you to all the friends who have supported this latest installation, starting with my personal friends in Rome who came to “feel the terpenes” and to hang out with me at the Città dell’Altra Economia, and of course also to the friends of Canapa Mundi, who were the first to support 50 Shades of Green, and also very supportive in the logistic of the installation at the event venue.
The other reason for this blog post is for sharing some pictures that I have already published on the project page on Instagram, @50greenshades. Some of these pictures have been taken by my friends, while the most professional-looking ones are those I got from BeLeaf Magazine, media partner of the project, that also interviewed me for a full article on the July issue of the magazine – stay tuned, as I will be sharing that interview soon! In the mean time, enjoy the photo gallery!
Last note: one think that I love in this lates installation of 50 Shades of Green was the fact that the indoor space where I installed the artwork actually had a floor made of sampietrini, the typical road pavement stone blocks that are everywhere in Rome. I love sampietrini, and I loved to see them in the 50 Shades of Green tunnel!
