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.
An historical journey through Italy shows the areas that have been damaged the most from flooding, earthquakes, landslides and avalanches.
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.

A virtual tour of L’Aquila that takes the viewer through the streets of the city’s historical centre, five years after the devastating April 2009 earthquake. The more than 400 photos, taken at the beginning of 2014, show how little the city has changed in these years of “reconstruction”. For the moment the map does not include views of the new towns created after the earthquake which are now in dire shape.

RE GIORGIO NAPOLITANO
Paper/Screen convergence, 2015
The two-term (unprecedented in the country's history) president of Italy has resigned. The timeline of Il Fatto Quotidiano (daily paper and leading website) recalls, with a critical point of view, the main events that marked the nine-year "reign" of "King Giorgio Napolitano".
La vita è un treno
Abandoned train lines
A four-part web series that takes the viewer on a tour of abandoned train lines that cross Italy, from Calabria to the Langhe area, from the Tyrrhenian coast to the Adriatic. Following the rusted railways and deserted stations, the stories highlight the dire consequences of shutting down smaller train lines in favour of long-distance, rapid ones: the loss of a rich heritage, waste of money and resources --- with a rise in road transportation (and pollution) and hardship for travelers --- and for by-passed towns, now forced into anonymity, the destruction of their lifelines into urban areas.
