Daniele Zovi

The wood as a community: cooperation and interdependence among plants

«When you are in the wood, you can feel a flow of energy spreading among branches, leaves, and roots. It is as if plants spoke to each other.» Daniele Zovi, tireless hiker and sensitive observer, knows how to listen to these sounds. During his forty years of experience he managed to observe thousands of trees. According to Zovi, the wood is the result of actions and reactions, as well as coalitions and competitions among all the different plants. Trees communicate to each other, they are sympathetic, they make sex, they have senses of sight, touch, and smell. Plants look like humans more than we believe, but we need to learn a lot to interact with them and truly respect them.

 

Location change: from cinema Moderno to Piazza Matteotti
