Canto XXV Inferno (58-60)
THE SNAKE AND THE IVY
The ancient columns that stood in the centre of the Rotonda 1º Maggio represent the natural centre of this scene, where the snake has been recreated with plants (Coleus blumei in two different colours, with red and yellow variegated leaves, Impatiens walleriana, Alyssum, green Alternanthera).
The ivies encircle the columns and the tall pines, almost symbolizing a suffocating embrace.
These green works were created by the Green Service Department of the Municipality of Cervia.
