- • Italy, December 2015/ March 2017
I started my investigation in the province of Verona, which is characterised by an extensive use of weed killers.
I then travelled to Tuscany, where a vast area of ‘biodistricts’ (where farmers come together and decide to cultivate adjacent fields following organic practices) is being created. Lastly, I went to Abruzzo, where I had the chance to talk with a doctor who has been studying environmental diseases for years.
I came into contact with people (farmers, winemakers, doctors, agricultural advisors) who propose alternatives to chemicals in farming. I took portraits of every person I met and interviewed them. The result is a video explaining what glyphosate is, what its negative effects on human health and the environment are, and why many farmers want it to be banned.Massimo Colombo
