The theme is the soil

To the cyclical nature of the soil which is the cyclical nature of life. To the memory of the soil that preserves the signs of our passage. To the fertility of the ground which is depth, momentum and growth. A return to the origin of everything, to the fallow land, to the secret place where the powerful magic invisible to us happens. Where the seed germinates and the root draws nourishment. Where everything begins and everything ends. From soil to soil.

Phytodepurators are the star plants

Silent friends of the planet, they restore water and soil polluted by humans in an alliance that is not always respected and appreciated.


They absorb carbon dioxide through their leaves, activating a chemical process useful for other plants and for the phytoremediation of the soil.
Over 400 species recognized for their precious activity of transforming pollutants: herbaceous, shrubby and arboreal plants guarantee the redevelopment of life’s source of survival.
