Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink: the idea that we are surrounded by something that we cannot benefit from is ever more pertinent as the glaciers melt, the rivers run dry and sea levels continue to rise.

Then there’s the water we don’t see, which is even more at risk: the freshwater underground, the water we use to grow food, to produce the clothes we wear and the consumer goods we exprt.

The water crisis is one of the many faces of the climate crisis, which is an increasingly serious emergency whose effects are being felt wider and further every year. 

How we can manage our water better, and in the best case scenario, reverse the losses we’ve brought upon ourselves?


  • Luca Mercalli, meteorologist and climatologist (pre-recorded video)
  • Mariosa Iannelli, enviromental researcher, water management specialist and president of the Water Grabbing Observatory
  • Anna Gavioli, biologist at the Po Delta Natural Park
