Fourth Trajectory - The Glaciers

HOME / TRAJECTORIES / QUARTA TRAIETTORIA

Melting glaciers lead to rising sea levels and a dramatic reduction in the water reserves on which ecosystems rely.

The dramatic melting of the Forni dello Stelvio glacier is an important litmus test of the state of pollution on our planet and one of the most obvious effects of ongoing climate change. Large-scale CO₂ production, deforestation and disproportionate exploitation of fossil fuels are causing a general increase in global temperatures, with a consequent reduction in Arctic and Antarctic ice and a progressive melting of large mountain glaciers.

Behind the scenes of Trajectory 4

“The situation is dramatic, both because of rising temperatures caused by greenhouse gases and because of the darkening caused by industrial pollution, soot from fires, debris, dust and plastic, as a result of which the ice reflects less of the sun’s radiation. Giuseppe’s shot shows me on this beautiful and poignant glacier, wearing a white dress made from waste material, a tricolour cape and the World Cup in my hand. A profile echoing the Statue of Liberty: I won and accomplished my life’s dream and, through this trophy, I want to further focus people’s attention on the environment.
Other shots show me in the thermal pool, with the wonderful backdrop of the mountains and the glacier: once again water and nature, the focus on the endangered mountain to underline how important it is to preserve nature, water and the surrounding area.”

1st trajectory​

All waterways lead to the sea where everything that the water has collected and transported along its journey flows and pours out.

2nd trajectory​

Plastic pollution of the oceans is endangering the life of marine fauna and flora.

3rd trajectory​

The lake is a slow-motion ecosystem, where water is exchanged slowly and pollution and waste accumulate, compromising it.

5th trajectory​

Planet Earth is in poor condition due to a climate disaster. The only way to reach salvation is decarbonization.

6th trajectory​

Deforestation is the second leading cause of climate change and accounts for 20% of greenhouse gas emissions.
