The skeletal outline of an ancient tree shows in its trunk the iron of the reinforced concrete armor. At the base, plastic slag like black roots, burnt, not similar to life. Among the leaves, thin images of what has crossed its visual perimeter over time, retinal memories that the light has fixed as frames of stories of men, birds, insects. Among the black leaves are scratched the names of over 200 extinct or endangered plants in the Veneto region.
