SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO ENJOY THE WALK
Warm up in Tron Park.
Il “riscaldamento del camminatore” suggested by the people
with disabilities who took part in the project.
Your hands. Look at them, open and close them slowly.
Your arms. Bring your shoulders and arms up and down. Move them through the air, bend them, see what you can do when you move them gently.
Your legs. Stand up and gently bend your knee bringing your foot up to your buttock. If you cannot stand on your own, lean against another person. Do it again with your other leg. Your neck and head. Move your head slowly in small circular motions.
Look for a garden, a forest, or any other green spot and take a Forest Bath
close your eyes,
hear the sound of your breath,
perceive the sounds around you,
perceive your skin and feel the air,
feel the weight of your body,
Open your eyes
and see the world around you.
From Tron Park to E. Gay Park, Discover the walk through your 5 senses!
Alone or in pairs, in silence, allow yourself to walk around and discover all the little details of the park. Find something you like with all your senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell or…taste, if you find anything edible!).
Choose a natural item that is attractive of symbolic for you and show it to the other person, or maybe observe it with renewed eyes. What do you like about this item? In what ways does it strike you?
Personal Postcards from E. Gay Park
While walking in the historical E. Gay Park, look for these special spots marked by the participants of the CareStories inclusive workshop.
The first postcard depicts Simone’s cabin: he especially likes it in summer, because it’s shady here. You can feel the warm air and hear the sound of the trees. Simone likes watching the trees from his cabin and looking far away to see beautiful things. When we asked him: “What can you see from here?” – he replied: “The world.”
A little further down, you find Roberto’s wisteria, with its pleasant fragrance that he loves. Roberto likes walking under the wisteria because he feels protected by this old tree, which produces large flowers, but whose age no one knows.
Below the cabin is Marina’s fountain, which she loves because the water gushes and makes her happy. Marina thinks this is the perfect place to spend time with friend and chat. So she comes here, she listens to the birds chirping, she watches the clouds, the plants, and nature.
Daniele likes the hedges, the flower beds, and the plants of the park. In particular, Daniele likes observing the leaves releasing their pollen with the wind, in July. It seemed as though it was snowing.
And here we are at the geese lake. This is Stefano and Dario’s postcard. They like sitting on the bench and watching the geese, which are beautiful and white, and make noises with their beaks.
