DESCRIPTIONFrancesca Schaal Zucchiatti presents her new book "What do my plants do when I'm not there?", a coming-of-age romantic novel that introduces an original vision of our living sideby side and in contact with the plant world.
A cactus that loses its thorns if loved, a bean plant that suffers from insomnia, the shyness of trees, their intelligence in communicating, learning, teaching, misleading and even manipulating; are just a few of the discoveries that Anne, the protagonist, learns to elaborate. The author offers to all the readers a new approach to the world of green through the revisiting of ancient beliefs along with great scientific discoveries from various scientists and researchers, such as Darwin, Lamarck, Linnep, Barbenk, Delpino. In addition to a rapid excursus of the most recent scientific discoveries and the mechanisms that allow plants to communicate with each other, to feel pain and even the affection with which we take care of them.
