"Let me briefly idealize the concept of a woodstack. Woodstacks are truly altars to nature and to woodland.
The word catasta is a poem in itself, because of the wood that it is made of, the things it conjures up
and - in the Italian language - because of the sound of the word itself. I know woodstacks are not always
well-crafted things of beauty; often they are an insult to the environment and nature. But, every now and then,
they can be veritable constructions: cottages or vast cathedrals with big roofs to cover them,
holding the pieces together and sheltering them from rain and snow". (Michele De Lucchi, October 2017)
