The plain at the top of Santa Croce’s cliff is hemmed with pine trees bended by the wind. On the northern side there’s a precipice in which falls the protagonist of Francesco’s novel. This precipice is surrounded by plants of alaternus and lentiscus of the Mediterranean scrubland.
The summit of Santa Croce, the abandoned church, the small plain hemmed with pine trees, the holm oak and the alaternus, as well as the myrtle, the lentisc and the rosemary, define another landscape described by Biamonti. In few indications we can see the botanical knowledge of Francesco, and the clues of a tragedy in the void. The lyrical and dry description is drawn close and contrasts with the tragic death of the young Jean Pierre.
