What’s ‘Tulip Making’ / Cos’è il ‘Tulip Making’?

Dutch Market Stalls

Each day there’s something new to discover in Melbourne. Today as cycling home on the Yarra River, we stopped to have a look at the Dutch Market under the Eureka Tower for Dutch Orange Day. What a surprise! Particularly amazing was the Tulip Making stall. A guy cycling on a ‘Velocipede’ and scluting wooden tulips. Just amazing, it feels like some piece of art & craft technique coming from the past. For some more info, have a look here:

Never getting bored in Melbourne!

Oggi tornando a casa in bici lungo il fiume Yarra, ci siam fermati a curiosare al mercatino olandese all’ombra dell’Eureka Tower. Tra musica, dimostrazioni, ‘delicatessen’ olandesi e il colore arancione che era ricorrente, mi ha particolarmente colpito lo stand del ‘Tulip Making’. Un signore che pedalando su un velocipede, stando fermo, lavorava il legno per fare delle sculture a forma di tulipano.Da l’impressione di essere una arte tradizionale che viene da lontano, nel tempo, ma anche geograficamente, essendosi svolta oggi a Melbourne.
