Description

Abruzzo is a land located at the center of the Mediterranean where extraordinary nature results in exceptional biodiversity, rarely found in Italian and European environments. Yet, the action of man has from the very beginning influenced primordial nature, systematically transforming the environment to adapt it to human needs. Today there is no hectare of land that has not been affected by human activity.

Aurelio Manzi retraces the history of the environment in the region, from the last glaciation to the present day, with the eyes of the naturalist attentive to human affairs. He analyzes environmental transformations in different eras, changes in the landscape and in agriculture, mutations in fauna and flora. He focuses on the destruction of important ecosystems such as Lake Fucino, one of the largest Italian basins, or the precious Campotosto peat bog, the marshy areas and the coastal area, pondering on the devastation of the large forest areas, in particular the forests of the plain. He investigates some processes of historic significance currently underway, including the abandonment of mountain and hill areas with the consequent urbanization of the coast, as well as climate change and the environmental effects deriving from it.
