Obiettivo del volume è guardare alla storia d’Italia dell’ultimo secolo e mezzo attraverso la categoria di “Antropocene”. Il nostro pianeta è entrato in una fase storica in cui le attività umane condizionano in maniera crescente gli assetti naturali. Riconoscere che gli esseri umani sono una forza geologica ed ecologica, in grado di trasformare le leggi della natura e di farne parte, suggerisce un mutamento profondo nel modo di rappresentare il rapporto tra ambiente e società, comporta l’impiego di modelli di conoscenza fondati sulla cooperazione fra saperi e linguaggi disciplinari differenti, ribalta i punti di osservazione dai quali indagare il passato. L’Antropocene impone di riportare la natura dentro la storia. Il libro propone una serie di percorsi volti a individuare e interpretare le modalità con cui il nostro paese ha partecipato a questi cambiamenti, valutandone cause, ricadute, implicazioni, responsabilità. L’autrice, delineando fasi storiche e punti di svolta, ne individua altresì specificità e peculiarità. Gli effetti della crisi climatica si intrecciano e si sovrappongono a problemi ambientali di più lungo periodo legati sia ai tratti strutturali della penisola sia alle scelte politiche, ai modelli di sviluppo, ai processi sociali, ai caratteri del dibattito culturale. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… The aim of the volume is to look at the history of Italy over the last century and a half through the category of "Anthropocene". Our planet has entered a historical phase in which human activities are increasingly influencing natural structures. Recognizing that human beings are a geological and ecological force, capable of transforming the laws of nature and being part of them, suggests a profound change in the way of representing the relationship between environment and society, involves the use of models of knowledge based on cooperation between different disciplinary knowledge and languages, overturns the observation points from which to investigate the past. The Anthropocene requires us to bring nature back into history. The book proposes a series of paths aimed at identifying and interpreting the ways in which our country has participated in these changes, evaluating their causes, repercussions, implications and responsibilities. The author, outlining historical phases and turning points, also identifies specificities and peculiarities. The effects of the climate crisis intertwine and overlap with longer-term environmental problems linked both to the structural features of the peninsula and to political choices, development models, social processes and the characteristics of the cultural debate.]
