  12. 12. BooksFrom the book Homo Radix. Appunti per un cercatore di alberi (A Root Man. Notesfor a Tree Seeker) Translated by Daniela Filippin«I am a root-man. I am a man who has moved around in order to grow and forgethis first set of roots. I am a man who has uprooted himself and has wanderedaround until he found new roots. I’m a man who has stopped in order to moveahead again. A man who has set down new roots. I’m a man who has woken up asa tree with leaves treeing themselves in the breath of the wind, picking up storiescarried and conveyed by other creatures. I am a root man who finds joy and peacein his new patch. I am a man who has found his roots by travelling the world.»
