For the second consecutive year Cascina Cuccagna returns to host De Rerum Natura, the project curated by Matteo Ragni Design Studio.This year’s theme, 500 years after the death of Leonardo da Vinci, is “Renaissance”.

Every year De Rerum Natura hosts a space for cultural deepening, dedicated to a theme, conceived and developed by an independent curator. For the 2019 edition, “Design Collisions – The power of collective ideas”, a small exhibition that brings together great ideas created in communities for communities.
The curator Laura Traldi is a journalist for D La Repubblica and founder of www.designatlarge.it.
