Exposition Botanique

De Théophraste à Napoléon


lire davantae


Pour la toute première fois de leur histoire, les Bibliothèques Patrimoniales d’Ajaccio et de Bastia se réunissent pour une exposition autour des ouvrages patrimoniaux relatifs à la science du végétal. Ces collections ont été léguées à la Corse par Tommaso Prelà, Lucien Bonaparte, le Cardinal Fesch ou encore Louis Campi, avec une ambition d’excellence pour la population insulaire, qui peut alors bénéficier de cette manne scientifique, provenant des plus grands couvents ou bibliothèques de leur époque. Cette exposition se veut en partie légataire de cette ambition, en valorisant pour le plus grand nombre ces collections, tout en suivant la construction de la pensée scientifique autour du végétal et de la botanique depuis le XVIe siècle. De fait, les deux Bibliothèques possèdent des ouvrages très anciens sur l’art du végétal, la botanique et les jardins.

De l'Observation à la Description

Do you know that 40% of the world’s commercially cut timber is used for paper? This endangers natural habitats and uses a ton of water.



Découverte de nouvelles espèces

Bottled water and throw away packaging is wasteful. Landfills are overfilling with water bottles alone. It is also estimated that 3 litres



Les Jardins

Buying throwaway fashion is detrimental for the environment – 1 kg of fabric generates 23 kg of greenhouse gases! Start thinking about




The Environmental Working Group found that red meat is responsible for 10 to 40 times as many greenhouse emissions as common vegetables
