DIGITALIS PURPUREA is a 'one-man project' created in 2003 by Cristian Marovino a.k.a. Pi_Greco.
Digitalis Purpurea is the botanic name of the Purple Foxglove, a plant symbol of temptation, pleasant but at the same time destructive. Traditionally the foxglove was used as medical plant but had also an obscure use, an overdose in fact is lethal. That's why it was called "devil's finger". Particularly Pi Greco chose the name referring to a poem by Giovanni Pascoli "Digitale Purpurea".
"30-hole and Fred Perry" is the third chapter of the DIGITALIS PURPUREA's "mouth trilogy".
