Interview for “The Florentine” on the 2012 flooding in Albinia (Southern Tuscany)

theflorentine-allIn early 2013, following a talk I gave in Manciano, Southern Tuscany, on Mapp(ear)ing Maremma in December 2012, I was contacted by The Florentine to answer some questions about a recent flooding event in Albinia, a small village in the plain of the Albegna river.

Initially I was surprised of being contacted to talk about hydrogeologic hazards and extreme event mitigation, on the basis of a presentation where I was talking about participatory mapping and light pollution. Nevertheless, I went back to my notions about “water flowing without pipes”, as I call Hydrology, and I gave my fair input to the magazine.

The interview is available online (I found out in June 2015), and is called: Water, water, water everywhere
