Abstract

The garbage crisis and land management in Campania
In his essay, Antonio di Gennaro reconstructs the dramatic decline of Campania felix, once an elaborate mosaic of land, ecosystems and landscapes. Its origin is in a rupture of the equilibrium between urban and rural areas, an equilibrium that also extended to waste disposal. This rupture goes a long way back, but became deep and clearly perceivable around the middle of the twentieth century as a result of a number of factors, including a strong population increase.
