I am Eugenio Cappello, I'm 25 years old. I have always had a strong bond with the trees, my grandfather, for pleasure, wrote poems about the harvest , my uncle in his spare time he paints country landscapes, my father studied botany at school and each in its own way has always sung the praises of the great trees, our ancestors and heirs at the same time, keepers of the secrets of the earth and sky.
So, this summer, I consulted the maps of the forest ranger of Italy (a recent Italian law 10/2013, held a census of monumental trees region by region) and I went to see the oldest trees of my country. My journey took a month and focused in central Italy: Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Marche. I had to narrow it down because the trees are often hard to reach or in small villages unknown, but one day maybe i will photograph the trees of the Alps and the South.
No photo has been modified with software photomontage , in some cases I only adjusted the exposure .
