 Today we celebrate World Water Day

Today, March 22, we celebrate World Water Day, established in 1993 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. This year the theme is Water for all - Leaving no one behind ("Water for all, let's not leave anyone behind"), which is inspired by the sixth of the 17 goals for the sustainable development of the 2030 Agenda, or "to guarantee everyone the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation by 2030».

«Water is a precious commodity and its importance is such that it is now nicknamed blue gold - declared the director of the Lombardy Region Riccardo Pase, as well as chairman of the Environment Commission - even in regions like ours, which are morphologically rich of water resources, the climatic variations are creating many problems going to affect sectors such as agriculture, for example, which in recent years has suffered waves of drought compromising the yield of entire productive sectors and severely affecting ecosystems».

Camogli

More than two billion people in the world live without having at home what the United Nations defines as "safe water", that is, a drinking water service managed in complete safety, such as water accessible in the premises, available when necessary and free from contamination . A speech that also closely concerns the Italian villages, many of which make water the main instrument, as well as a vital sustenance, also a tourist attraction. Seaside villages such as Camogli (in the province of Genoa), Polignano a Mare (Bari), or Stintino (Sassari); or lakeside villages like Orta San Giulio (Novara), Bellagio (Como) or Monte Isola (Brescia); or even villages that rise on the banks of a river such as Bard (Aosta) Dolceacqua (Imperia) or Borghetto sul Mincio (Verona). Small towns, authentic jewels of Italy, that have "thirst" for tourism.
