Until the advent of modern medicine, just under a century ago, the nature that surrounds us has been for millennia the only source of remedies for our ailments, a real living pharmacy. Trees and grasses have generously provided seeds, fruits, leaves, flowers, bark and roots from which were prepared effective decoctions, poultices and tinctures. These were mainly botanical species that grew – and still grow – around villages, in the countryside, in forests and on mountains. Dr. Francesco Perugini Billi will introduce us to these plants and above all will talk about their use, still completely valid and beneficial to our health and the environment.
