COOLCITY_DEEP (detailed analysis / research)
CoolCity promotes participated actions for the re-qualification of water flows, as well as interventions to increase awareness. In turn, such activities are intended to spur a sense of collective responsibility with regards to pollution and water waste. Such actions constitute the fundamental prerequisite for any agreement on how to structure policies aimed at increasing the use of territorial water resources. CoolCity argues that a cost/benefit analysis on the increase in the use of water resources could help policy and decision makers into shaping such sustainable policies.

Neapolitan water par excellence, stirs up great curiosity. The display describes the legendary / tragic Sebeto river. Its source is said to be in Volla and that the Maddalena bridge straddled its estuary. Paintings, stories and myths have left an indelible memory of what was once an important waterway. The first meeting on Easter Monday, was organized as an outdoor excursion, looking into the most famous river in the history of Naples, accompanied by a passionate expert in its history.

Regular fresh water contains much more within its structure than people often realize. For the last three centuries, it has been employed in homeopathic medicine, producing tangible effects on humans, animals and plants, but only today are we beginning to understand its actions and mechanisms, in spite of the total absence of molecules in solution.
