The title comes from a phrase from "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" by Friedrich Nietzsche.
“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees:
but he who is not afraid of my darkness,
will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”
[Io sono una selva e una notte di alberi scuri,
ma chi non ha paura delle mie tenebre,
troverà anche pendii di rose sotto i miei cipressi.]
