At Palazzo Steri a plastic fetus as the protagonist of the ambient session doc of the XVII edition of the Sole Luna Festival

L’opera di una giovane Sicilian artist, a ricercatore, primary di Ginecologia del Fatebenefratelli di Roma, Antonio Ragusa and the Fondatrice di Marevivo Rosalba Giugniwith the wise royal di Lucia Gotti Venturatofounder and president of the “Sole Luna Doc Film for Future Festival”in program from 4 to 10 July at the Steri Monumental Complex, have given a lifelong finding on the subject of the plastic intrusion into the human body.

The 2022 edition of the international documentary collection, which will always be at its best, and will be the protagonist in imagining the society of the future from the perspective of the present, from the daily reality and from the environment in which we live, if it moves its edge how much mai current delle tematiche enviromentali, legate to conflicts and climatic changes, with the aim of opening a rifle at 360 degrees at the time we live.

In the cortile Steri dello storico omonimo palazzo palermitano, seat of the Rettorato dell’Università degli Studi di Palermo and location of the 17th edition of the festival, l’opera Plastic Mother gave Fabrizio Capostagnovincitrice della seconda edizione del concorso Marine Litter Art di Marevivo, performed with reperti rinvenuti sulla spiaggia della foce del fiume Platani nell’agrigentino, accoglie gli ospiti con la sua drammaticità: una donna prostrata, in atteggiamento protettivo verso il frutto del suo ventre: a bottle of plastic gialla.

The precognition of the giovane artist who has pioneered and resulted from the scientific research on his ability to penetrate microplastics in the human organism, has given the via alla conversazione. “Abbiamo messo the environmental question at the center of our Festival – I have learned from the confrontation with the president of Sole Luna Lucia Gotti Venturatoperché siamo convinti che molte delle emergenze con cui ci troviamo a dover fare i conti dipendono dal rapporto squilibrato tra uomo e natura. He thought about all the desertification, all the scarcity, all the war for the acquisition of raw material, all the pandemic, climate change, persecuted a part of the migratory phenomenon. Insieme Marevivo e ad Enel Green Power abbiamo realized the section Environment doc, own as dedicated all’interno di Sole Luna to the theme of the environment and the salute of the sea. This collaboration with Marevivo is only the beginning of so many adventures that we will see insieme”.

Rosalba Giugni fondatrice and president of Marevivo, Mediterranean association born in 1985, has illustrated as in quasi quaranta anni il sodalizio if it was impegnato to divulge with campaign of sensibilizzazione and with legislative purpose, the always più invasive problem of the plastic in the sea.

“SWe are stati i primi nel mondo insieme a dei volontari in California ad andare sulle spiagge, non per organizzare mega concerti, ma a ripulirle dai rifiuti plastici che cominciavano a comparire ovunque. Per questa attività mi chiamavano la “maringa” la casalinga del mare. Let’s have a sudden capito that the indistruttibile material avrebbe rappresentato a gigantic problem for the life of the sea and of the cerature that the inhabitant”, said President Giugni.

Centinaia di manifestazioni con migliaia di volontari, campaign of sensibility, activity of education and dissemination, co-involvement of the school is not enough to arrest the most! The covid and the war have certainly slowed down the journey and have failed to impaldire our proposal. Da quattro anni lottiamo por ottenere la Legge Salvamare que consenta ai Pescatori di Riportare in Banchina la plastica trovata nelle reti, mettere sistemi di raccolta dei rifiuti alla foce dei fiumi, attività sostenute con campaign di pulizia, educazione nelle scuole, regole certe per dissalatori e aquacultura, manage the Posidonia spiaggiata and so much else. The Legge was proposed to Minister Costa and finally approved in the Senato l’11 maggio in fourth reading, ma manca ancora dei decreti attuativi per essere operante”, concluded the president of Marevivo.

A conferma della drammaticità of the subject l’intervento del Professore Antonio Ragusaauthor of the book Nati with the shirt… say plastic, He has contacted, with the support of images and data, come, stimulated by finding a plastic microsphere in one of the beautiful sights of Sardinia Pools, if part of a research, deprived of funds, of this material in the placenta of his peace.

with the collaboration of its hospice staff and of the Marche polytechnic The result, purtroppo, is positive status: micro-plastiche was not present in the tessuti of the sancta sanctorum della vita!

Gli artisti intuiscono prima degli scienziati cosa sta accadendo – has said il Professore, riferendosi alla scultura della giovane siciliana – “I am not sick and I continue to approach the most and purtroppo is present in the maternal milk and addition in the cytoplasm of the cell”.

Thing will happen or, meglio, thing is changing in the human body? We did not know it now, but we saw something that was happening agli animali del mare, prime vittime dell’invasione aliena: changed sesso, diventano impotenti e, in a research of Prof.ssa Margaret Ferrante that studied gli occhi dei pesci, is emerging that the nano plastic and have not altered the functionality.

In mammals, the presence of microplastics determines alterations in health that lead to obesity, metabolic syndrome, behaviors similar to autistic alterations in their function and in their production of neurotransmitters. Negli esseri umani saranno confermati questi dati? We do not know it anchored, but the research in this delicate field must absolutely continue”.

We apprezziamo so much the organizational effort of the Festival Sole Luna nell’aver voluto I will dedicate the session Environment Doc alla diffusione delle tematiche environmentali, collaborating per mettere in risalto le minacce che gravano sull’ambiente e sul mare – has said Fabio Galluzzo regional delegation for the Sicilia di Marevivo Onlus – and will carry an artistic work of great significant impact to the attention of the public, has contributed to inducing the riflessione sui rischi dell’inquinamento, che non risparmiano nemmeno l’human organism, due to the complex vortex d’interazione that sussiste tra l ‘natural environment and its degeneration. In a region like Sicily, characterized by a great naturalistic value, Marevivo is fighting a very difficult battle, starting from the educational system, for all the families, all the political institutions and all the entire community, and it is a path in which we will always spend all Our energy for the benessere of the future generation and of this wonderful land that can live on foot titolo di mare e natura”.

The conversation continuously stimulated the domande appassionate of Lucia Gotti if it is also with the great participation of the public. The theme, strongly felt, has involved so many giovani presenti that I see a difficult future for the sopravvivenza parrot.

Sono scaturite proposte operative e proposte di collaborazioni e gemellaggi: perché per affrontare il mostro e, per vincerlo, dobbiamo essere uniti.
