“… The Crete Senesi is therefore a singular territory. As an island: explosive, without compromises, where the sun really beats, the wind blows without obstacles, the light is blinding and the gaze can be mercilessly spaced everywhere, chasing distant horizons, admirable lines, unforgivable failures.
A landscape without secrets, but that is difficult to decipher, because it requires an acute observation and a profound understanding. They are a blob that become white when everything is green and become green when everything is gray. A soft land with appearances, almost velvety, but cracked, split, rough in reality. …”
