Glaciers are the best witnesses of climate change.
With a temperature increase of about 3 degrees in the last 150 years
the Forni Glacier in the Stelvio Park has reduced in length
by more than 2 km.

Today Milan has the same average
annual temperature of Rome 200 years ago.
We’ve moved half of Italy from a point of view
of thermometric measure.

We discovered DDT (insecticide) of the 1970s,
a new generation of pollutants and recently
traces of microplastics in the glacier.

The cycle life of pollution.

There is life on glaciers.
The new study methods allows us to discover and describe in detail
a diversity of microorganisms that was previously unknown.
