Anima Mundi is the first human-environment centred show in Italy: at certain stages of this journey, visitors were asked to personally take part in the narrative by interacting with the surroundings, and establishing a close and mutual relationship with it.
A journey to discover fantastic worlds

A magic experience comes to life into an imaginary world populated by the light creatures hidden among the gnarled trunks and the majestic foliage of the Botanical Garden.

Throughout the walk, the visitor has to follow Jinn, the genius loci of the Garden, on a journey with his friends Puch, Yara, Sun and Kurma to save their ecosystem and the entire world from the dangers of global warming.
