I am not scared salvatore

While searching for the glasses at the farmhouse, Michele discovers a hole in the ground covered with a sheet of metal. Overheard snippets of conversation between his parents fall into this category; outdoors, a shot of machines threshing vast fields of wheat, a suddenly alien, intrusive and frightening image, may be the most outstanding example.

He opens it and sees part of a bare human leg; horrified, due to the limited time he had to investigate the situation, he decides to keep this a secret from the others. There are many views of fields and hills of wheat, this endless land being the backyard for the children of Acqua Traverse and the setting to their childhood adventures.
