The VI edition of Smell-Festival Internazionale dell'Olfatto, opening this year in Bologna on 20-24 May, promises to be quite eventful. The theme "Performing Scents" in fact invites us to a journey through the olfactory dimension related to movement. body, space and stage action and confirms the vocation to be an experiential laboratory wanted since the beginning by Francesca Faruolo. The synesthetic exploration will culminate in the empire or the Rising Sun, thanks to an introduction followed by the japanese ceremony of Kōdō or The way to incense, one of the three classic arts of refinement, rarely performed out of Japan, led in this special occasion by Souhitsu Hachiya, 21st descendant of an ancient family of masters.
There are many irons in the fire and the smell is inviting, so don't miss it! Of course you can find all the information about conferences and workshops on the Smell website. I'll be there and look forward to meeting you soon!
