These are the novels that were attributed to the chestnut during their journey in Gaulle.

A legend, invented by an Italian poet of the Renaissance, wants that the chestnut was born from the (pro) creative fury of Jupiter. Courted by Jupiter, one of Diane's nymphs, Nea, preferred to kill herself rather than lose her virtue. To honor him, the master of the gods has turned into a majestic tree, Casta Nea, whose fruits filled with quills symbolize this adventure.

The brown itself has not been turned into skin and is easy to process.
