In this pano, as I already did in my other ones on the same theme, I focused my attention on "informal" Forests. My panos are on "city woods", which are, in my opinion, as important as tropical, pluvial or similar ones because, even if the planet needs them, our cities, so full of cement, also need trees. I think it's useless going on and explaining the reason why.

Here you can see the very huge Prater wood, with tall trees; on Sunday many people, runners, families go there to breath in the fresh air and spend time relaxing (look at the "mysterious woman" sitting on a bench, reading a book: why am I so sure? Make a guess....)

In questa panoramica, come ho fatto anche nelle mie altre su questo tema, ho focalizzato la mia attenzione su foreste "informali". Le mie pano sono su "boschi cittadini" (non foreste vere e proprie) che sono, a mio parere, tanto importanti quanto lo sono le foreste tropicali, fluviali o similari, perche', anche se il pianeta ha bisogno di loro, le nostre citta' cosi' invase dal cemento, hanno bisogno di alberi. Penso che non sia neanche il caso di procedere con ulteriori spiegazioni su cio'. Qui potete vedere il vasto bosco del Prater, con alti alberi: alla domenica molte persone, podisti, famiglie ecc. vanno li' per respirare aria piu' fresca, e passare un po' di tempo in completo relax (guardate per esempio la "donna misteriosa" seduta sulla panchina, mentre legge un libro: come mai sono cosi' sicuro di cio'? Provate ad indovinare.....)
