Cypresses are tall, pointed trees that, according to the Romans, guided heaven-ward the souls of the dead. The ancestors of the Italians used to bury their dead alongside roads, at the feet of these Cupressaceae which had been planted there on purpose to show them the way. Today, with all these wars, death comes quickly all along roads, but there are no cypress trees to be found! How traditions die out!
