Anemone is a delicate and graceful flower. The name has a Greek etymology referring to “the wind’s daughter”. "Anemos" (wind), and the suffix -one, which indicates a female offspring or daughter. Myths involve the Greek gods of the four winds, but also Adonis and Aphrodite. The Goddess of love kept Adonis as her companion for too long and the other gods killed him, so she wept over his grave and her tears for her fallen love grew into Anemone flowers. The grief around Acumuli and Amatrice will live on. Anemone symbolizes this grief as these two communities cry the deaths of around 290 people. Hope is here depicted as a nude female who rests on solid structure, whilst stepping on the crevasse of the 24/08 earthquake. Adorning her hair is an Anemone flower; which is also a metaphor of excitement for a prosperous future and the arrival of the first spring winds.
