Storm tides: from devastation to recovery

Porto Antico-Slow Fish Arena

Last October the Vaia storm caused massive damage to the Dolomite forests in Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-South Tyrol. At the same time, storm tides in Liguria devastated numerous towns along the coast.

These two disasters can be attributed to the same cause: climate change. Now, a recovery project is responding to the emergency. At Slow Fish, Primo Barzoni of Palm tells us how they’re recovering the wood from fallen trees with the endorsement of PEFC. The stands and spaces of Slow Fish have been made using this wood!

From Liguria, Simone Bava and Luca Onorato explain how extreme meteorological phenomena are becoming more frequent, in many cases because of human activity. They also suggest small actions which we can all take every day to reduce our impact on the environment.


  • Primo Barzoni, President of Palm
  • Simone Bava, Director of AMP Bergeggi
  • Luca Onorato, Arpal – CMI
  • Antonio Brunori, Secretary General of PEFC


  • Silvio Greco, President of the Slow Fish scientific committee
