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

Simone Arrigoni is a classical pianist, Freediving World Champion (he set 20 World Records in the sea, lake, under the ice and with dolphins), and awards-winning photographer. His photos and reportages have been exhibited Worldwide (Italy, UK, Greece, Belgium, China, USA, Singapore); published in books and magazines (as Image in Progress, Fotografia Reflex, Il Venerdì di Repubblica); and received more than 100 awards in the most prestigious international photo contests
