Says Alessio: Like a foreign object, like a no fruit tree that comes from afar. A plant that grows up with massive roots which sets up into the society: human hands that imprison the rich land for expel it exhausted out. Sardinia is the most militarized zone in Europe: more of the 60% of Italian easement for military purposes occupy about 35.000 hectares. Armies from all the world have been testing their armaments in Sardinia for training for over 50 years, with strong impacts on population and environment. An investigation called “Quirra’s poisons”, that put on trial 8 commanders, has started since 2001. Now there are lots of movements which fight against the military presence in Sardinia. I’ve been trying to question me about this problematic for about 3 years, aware that, probably, little or nothing will change.
