Tiziano Fratus

Writer, poet, researcher of ancient, monumental trees. Exploring mature forests, he measures trees, mediates and writes in their shade. Consequent to his encounter with the California sequoias he developed the concept of Homo Radix, or the practice of arborography and the discipline of dendrosophy, on which he writes. A prolific author, his most recent title is Il bosco è un mondo, following I giganti silenziosi, Ogni albero è un poeta, Manuale del perfetto cercatore d’alberi, Il libro delle foreste scolpite, and Un quaderno di radici. He writes for the regular La Stampa newspaper column Il cercatore di alberi.
