The glaciers of Aosta Valley : past, present and … future?
07 June – 09:30, Festival della parola, Aosta – Piazza Chanoux

The history of the Alps and the Aosta Valley is strictly related to glaciers: during the geological history they have shaped the landscape, and their advance-retreat cycles affected alpine people’s history, migration and economy. Today glaciers still represent an important resource for water supply and tourism economy in the Alpine regions and are worldwide studied as a main climate proxy. Because of continuous climate evolution and the present warming phase, a question arise: how glaciers will evolve in the near future?
