Arum is a plant whose name comes from the Greek aron, meaning heat, and it has a characteristic that makes it unique in nature: when it is in bloom, it helps regenerate soils with its heat. This is why Arum is the symbol of a Festival idea that aims to put regeneration at the center of every activity.
