Malagrotta is the biggest dump in Europe, now closed because it is full. Around it there is evidence of environmental pollution and degradation, increased over the years and now indelible. In this project, the author offers a personal view of the entire area now abandoned to itself; area that, more than others, clearly witnesses how huge and existing the environmental pollution is.

 

 

A land enveloped in silence, where black water flows through mountains created by man. 4,500 – 5,000 tons of waste is tipped every day in the biggest dump in Europe, Malagrotta where life seems to be far away and nature finds its strength which becomes enduring and unrestrainable. Like a warrior who has lost his battle it shows its deep wounds and forces us to open our eyes, even if we sometimes prefer keeping them closed… During the night a parallel city emerges which is made up of smokes, fires and shadows together with an unendurable stench and a white, thick cloud: it is the City of Snow.
