Vita et natura is the expression of a relationship of exchange between man and nature. An apple tree, symbol of knowledge and wisdom, presides over the two faces of this sculpture. Over time man has discovered the needs of the planet on which he lives. And he has learned to love and respect it in order to reap its fruits. Thus, a boy is seen reaching up to pick an apple from a tree that is growing. Later, he rests in order to enjoy what life offers him.
