We are in the mid of the 50’s. A young chemist, director of a big cotton mill, at the birth of his daughter, decides to make his wife a present: a ground at the doors of Milan.
The property is included in a protected natural area, and therefore Aquilino (that’s the name of our main character) and his wife, on advice of an agronomist, decide to plant the white pine, a conifer original from the Easter North America.
This is how the forest is born, that will later be the camp i pini di Aquilino: a gift, that represents LIFE, a project to cherish and share. It also shows a path for those who will come next.
“ Tree. An extreme explosion of a seed.”
– Bruno Munari, Written report, 1992
