Pietro is a boy of twenty who lives in the trees. He climbed them before starting to walk and now looks after monumental trees all over the world. He climbs them, studies them, loves them, talks to the branches (and the branches speak to him, he swears). In these pages he tells what happens on top of the giant plants of Australia and in our tame gardens. Because even there, without realizing it, there are loves and wars, such as that, down on the ground, between sage and tomato. But this book is not only about trees, it also talks about us. Because from those oaks more than thirty meters tall Pietro looks at the world below, our world, that of those who remain on the ground. And he tells what trees can teach us, what we need to live with their tranquility and adaptability. Pietro teaches us how to find a new measure for our time: “Plants are slow, very slow for the speed of our lives. And while we, impatient in the world below, are unable to think in terms of centuries, they see us go by, look at us and know. “
