"What's in a name?  That which we call a rose.  By any other name would smell as sweet." - W. Shakespeare
Also many other poets and writers have dedicated verses to these superb flowers that have always adorned and embellished the gardens and homes of mankind.  Awe-inspiring petals, thorny stems, and warm delicate hues are the embodiment of the archaic fascination of the rose, the true essence of which, remains forever evanescent.
The master of still life photography, Fabio Petroni, also dedicated himself to roses and their infinite expressions, trying to capture through his lens the facets and details that make this flower so unique and a symbol of love and graciousness.  Suggestive images clad in elegant and refined graphics, along with marvellous close-ups and in-depth information of the history and variety of the roses photographed, make this volume where the rose is the absolute protagonist, a compendium in which the pages and petals seem to merge.
