ROTTAMA ITALIA - PERCHÉ IL DECRETO SBLOCCA-ITALIA È UNA MINACCIA PER LA DEMOCRAZIA E PER IL NOSTRO FUTURO
Paper/Screen convergence, 2014
The so-called Unlock-Italy decree, considered anti-constitutional by jurists such as Ferdinando Imposimato, Paolo Maddalena, Giovanni Losavio, became law in Italy on 11 November 2014, following an ambiguous bi-partisan vote. The decree contradicts the constitutional principle concerning the protection of the public heritage, and strengthens the level of debt hidden under ostensible public-private partnerships. This free ebook – available in pdf, epub, and mobi-Kindle formats – features a critical analysis of a law that is expected to burden Italian politics, economy, and environment starting in 2015.
A journey into biodiversity, in six parts of the world, six different climates, six different agricultural zones: West Africa, Ethiopia, Iran, Russia, Italy, France.
This is an inquiry into the origins of seeds and the importance of genetic biodiversity, to preserve food sovereignty and identity, to ensure autonomy from the international markets, to encourage the sustainable development of natural resources. Moreover, farming based on the use of local seeds prevents recourse to chemical products and damage to the earth.
Polar Sea 360°
Polar Sea traces the journey of three men through the Arctic Ocean, and the Northwest Passage in particular, from Reykjavik, Iceland, to the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. Sailing in the Dax, the men observe and reflect on the changing climactic conditions in the region and the effects on the territory and the natives.
The ten episodes explain the history of the native Inuits, the local culture, hunting, music, climate problems and scientific research.
The engrossing interactive aspect of the documentary gives the viewer the opportunity to dip into the polar seas and move around at 360° within the video. The narration and the logbook are enhanced with interactive maps and photographs to trace the sailboat's route.

With the help of videos, timelines and geological maps, the project reports on a century of natural disasters and hydrogeological risks in Italy, and it proposes solutions to save the land and its cultural heritage.
