While in the central area of the Decumano, Islands is focussing on the global heath and solar reflection, and Nature Based Solutions; the painting The Unknown in the Tree of Life area is an homage to what there is still to explore, the abyss, and the infinite connections of research and innovative development defined as roots of plants as well as neuronal activities.
