A 50 minute walk, (2 shifts): h 16:00 and h 17:30

A walk in the Botanical Garden of Brera, to see and smell the flowers and plants described by Shakespeare in his works, on the recurrence of the 400th anniversary of his death. 

Shakespeare knew well the importance of botanics in our lives and he well described it through Iago's words:

Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners. So that if we will plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop and weed up thyme, supply it with one gender of herbs or distract it with many—either to have it sterile with idleness, or manured with industry—why, the power and corrigible authority of this lies in our wills.
