In an increasingly digital society, nature serves as a refuge and guide to better understand and navigate the world around us, especially in these uncertain times. “Se son rose, fioriranno” is an Italian phrase used to calm disquiet concerns, assuring us that “If they are roses, they will bloom.” The poetic nuance and hopeful optimism of this expression explains that matters are often out of our control. What is meant to be, will be.
