«The first thing I saw in life was a Nintendo 8 bit joypad. The second was my brother’s fist as he took back his joypad». He has always loved writing, and cannot stop himself from mocking, inventing stories and re-inventing reality by placing it under a playful light, even when he

talks about himself. Marco Improta is an unstoppable communicator and in this new venture, he places words at the service of the most universal and badly treated of our common assets: nature.

“City Garden Night” is an original television format that won the call “Progetto Zero” for its originality and innovation. The idea comes from the answer to a simple question: «what would I, as a simple citizen, want to enhance the place where I live?». The idea is therefore a format that brings actual, long-lasting improvements to public green areas, «because we are starving for well-kept green areas, we are starving for civil, pretty places to share and look at».

Although gardening isn’t exactly his top passion, Improta believed that anyone, regardless of his personal data and biographical details, would prefer to live in an area surrounded by greenery rather than in a concrete forest.

«It is impossible for someone to be unhappy when green areas are taken care of, improving the community’s quality of life», we can rack our brains in search of a way to confound this theory and a flower would still bloom there.

As proof of this, episode zero of “City Garden Night” met with collective approval from the inhabitants of the Roman area of Via Castruccio Castracane where all, absolutely all the citizens, joined in with their tools to improve the place they live in.

The story has been written by Ginevra Lamberti, writer.
