Jelie is a lively octogenarian from Jovençan (Valle d’Aosta). She nourishes a particular passion for officinal plants, those used in popular medicine. She has an uncommonly modern environmental conscientiousness, developed through her close and sensitive observation of nature. Her days all revolve around her special little vegetable garden.
