Have you ever seen a rose in a tuft of salad?
Cutting the bottom of a tuft of salad, we discover with surprise that, if we use ink to make stencils with the part of the salad we normally throw away, we can get the unexpected image of a rose! Furthermore, this happens also with many other vegetables. Let’s stencil Brussels sprouts, peppers, onions…pictures of flowers, trees, storms and much more will magically appear!
“Roses in the salad” is a visual activity for children (and not only) designed and created in the seventies by Bruno Munari, artist and designer. Following Bruno Munari’s pedagogical method, in this workshop children are involved in exploration of an everyday “object” such as vegetables. By means of unusual stimuli, they are encouraged to explore the vegetables’ characteristics, such as their shape, colour, two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality.
ABM Bruno Munari Association was founded in 2001 with the intent to promote the diffusion of Bruno Munari’s work and Method. The purpose of the ABM is to encourage and develop the Method in schools, museums, and anywhere the development of creative design thinking is considered to be important.
Schedía Theatre is an association of artists operating in Lombardy and Italy. Its shows and theatre training projects focus particularly on young audiences.
