The rose is the protagonist of the fourth series of InvEarth project, with evocative shots that lead us directly into the arms of its petals, as if we were a pollinating insect that seeks the way to reach its heart. This series is a tribute to the flower symbol par excellence of love which has been a source of inspiration for artists since time immemorial: appeared on Earth before man, the "queen of flowers" was known already 4700 years ago in China for its healing qualities, and arrived in the western world thanks to the Egyptians, who cultivated it already under the reign of Ramses II
