Description

Acta Botanica is a series about women and plants. It is a reflection on modernity and tradition, on the forgotten medicinal qualities of herbs, and on the fact that it was often women who knew how to apply natural remedies. It is a story about stories passed down from generation to generation. About the continuous flow of time and the fragrance of a newly-opened bud. But it’s also a practical guide for daily use, here and now; about the things you can buy and consume. About people who can be role models for us. About the role of women in general. Finally, it is simultaneously a very personal confession and a universal tale; a serious contemplation on the world and a lighthearted moment of play.
