In the commune of Fossato di Vico, in Cima
Mutali has been realised a Aeolian Plant for the production of electric energy,
composed by two aerogenerators and a Aeolian Studies Center, where are made
studies and searches for the clean energy. These notorious eoliches shovels
create conflicting reactions anywhere are threatened to positioning them. Are
these bless sources of renewable energy, or accursed spoiled-panorama calamity?
This the dilemma. They should improve the quality of our life, to make it some
less dependent from the oil and from the coal, but in reality they instigate
endless polemics dividing even the most tireless friends of the nature. The
producers of energy want them, but they don't perhaps believe in them, the
environmentalists would like them but in another part. They are the new
eco-monster, ugly but profits, anxious in the form, but good in the substance.
Perhaps one day they will belong to our landscape, or maybe not. In the
meantime in Fossato di Vico the shovels keep turning on and on, waiting that
the polemics go away with the time. Or the wind.
