It is only through the history of its formation that the story of a landscape can be told: the geological horizons are the traces, the tracks (semèia) which are fundamental for reconstructing the phases of its origin, the initial act that is the foundation of its organisation, the imprinting it has received and which has gradually conditioned subsequent developments.
To recover this relationship, whose contours are often indefinite and unfathomable, it is however necessary to return to nature, to respect its laws, without the arrogance of man – demiurge.
Respecting the land means asking the earth what it can give us, and this attitude translates the work into “an alliance with the land”.
