Promote the importance of soil, a non-renewable natural resource in the temporal space of a human life. This is the goal of the “Heart and Soil” exhibition at the FAO Headquarters in Rome, born of the need to animate and contaminate artisically the fifth Plenary Assembly of the World Soil Partnership (Global Soil Partnership, GSP).
The theme has also been declined through contemporary art with a group of artists of international renown. The urgency of protecting the ground as a matter of primary importance for life, which has always been dear to artists, has developed through the use of various pictorial, photographic and sculptural techniques focusing on the increasing rate of global soil degradation and the consequences That it involves contamination, threats to biodiversity and loss of ecosystem services essential to life on earth. Art becomes a fly, a tool needed to correlate scientific arguments with visual, tactile, and conceptual emotions.
