Understanding the garbage emergency in Naples. An introduction
In their introduction, Gabriella Corona and Maurizio Franzini, besides illustrating the content of the essays that make up the monographic part of this issue of Meridiana, look at the main issues in the waste disposal emergency in Naples and Campania: the slowness of politicians to acknowledge the problems – a slowness that may have catastrophic consequences in the case of waste disposal –, technical mistakes, «weakness» in dealing with private entrepreneurs, and an inclination to coping with the more serious problems by recourse to emergency management.
