Pollution of water, air and soil is generating deadly superbugs, as is well documented in United Nations Environment Program report, which shows that pollution is diluting the effectiveness of antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals and pesticides.

L’inquinamento da plastica sta annegando e avvelenando il pianeta, ed è proprio questo il focus della giornata mondiale dell’ambiente di quest’anno.

The photographic project aims to stimulate research through images of the complex protection of biodiversity and the symbiosis between the various kingdoms of nature and human beings. Harmony between the macrocosm in which we are immersed and the human and animal microcosm is a fundamental element in maintaining physical and mental health.

The animal, plant and mineral kingdoms have always provided humans with tools for healing, survival and well-being. Vis medicatrix naturae wrote the father of Medicine Hippocrates (the healing power of nature). Rediscovering the symbiosis with nature is the way out of the stresses of modern life and recharging one’s energy. Respect, care and sustainability of the environment are consequently essential for healthy living.
