Nature can be friend or enemy, it can be mysterious, overwhelming or frightening but, in any way, it’s something we can’t avoid questioning and invoking, as we are made of it too. Poesie naturali is a poetry collection written by Alessandra Berardi Arrigoni and illustrated by Marina Marcolin, about the deep bond between nature and human beings. Nature becomes an instrument for children’s wondering and feelings. Every poem focuses on what nature tells us when we stop and listen to it.
[Text in Italian]
- discovering affinities between natural phenomena and our state of mind;
- experiencing what relates us to the environment;
- recognizing huge and tiny things through the natural world.
