In this number, you will find three interesting deepenings on water.
The first addresses the problem of Po River Basin that has suffered important morphological changes during the time. Soil stability and protection has been longly (for almost 20 years) discussed in ad hoc Parliamentary committee the “De Marchi” until 1989 when a new law had seen the light. In this article, you will also discovered one of the main problems, “sovralluvionamenti“, a solution ofter illusory, “disalvei“, and a conclusion of the meteorologist Luca Mercalli.
The second article is about a reflection about how freshwater should be approached at school. Freshwater is foundamental to all life on the planet. However, its amount is only 2.5% in comparison to all the water on Earth. You will discover that, usually, narratives aroud freshwater are presented in two distinct ways: though a hydrological narrative or a hydrosocial narrative.
