    Amministrare le selve.: I conflitti sull’uso delle risorse boschivedi Terracina in età liberale2018In: Storia Urbana, ISSN 0391-2248, Vol. 27, p. 27-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the forest ecology of the Municipality of Terracina, in thePontine Region, from the Unification to the beginning of the 20th century andhighlights the critical administrative issues and the potentials concerning themanagement of commons.This analysis looks at the forest through the lens of social and institutional conflict,which shows the discrepancy between the national legislative agenda and localgovernance, questions the correspondence between environmental and socialmarginalities, politicises the development of the forest area.This case-study is of particular interest because of the vast area of land at that timeunder customary and communal tenure; the late appearance of widespread phenomenaconnected to forests and the late development of reclamation plans; the impact of thehygienic constraint set by the 1877 Forest Act.The article contestualises and investigates the role of wooded commons from anenvironmental history perspective and relies on administrative records and existingscholarly literature on common lands and forest issue in Central Italy.

    Dalla montagna alle aree interne.: La marginalizzazione territoriale nella storia d’Italia2018In: Storia e Futuro. Rivista di storia e storiografia on line, Vol. 47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the rising and the evolution of the territorial issues in Italy from the unification, 1861, to nowadays. It focuses on uplands and, specifically, on their relationship with lowlands. The essay reconstructs the dialogue between marginal areas and modernization in Italy addressing the challenges posed to the economic science. This time period articulates in two phases. Through 1960s uplands have experienced a combination of two trends, the gradual enlargement of the deprived rural surface and the progressive geographical shift of degradation and depopulation towards South. Since early 1970s public and scientific understanding of the regional disproportions between mountainous and lowland areas started to question the previous assumptions and open up, possibly, a new positive phase.

    Seeing the nation for the trees: at the frontier of the Italian nineteenth century modernity2018In: Environment and History, ISSN 0967-3407, E-ISSN 1752-7023, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 497-508Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we analyse the emergence and the transformation of three different socio-natural spaces in a particular historical context – that is, the establishment of a modern state. We explore this issue by researching the relationship between forests and modernisation from Unification in 1861 to the 1890s. Over this period Italy experienced a radical change connected with the state-building process, and forests represented a material place where innovations in social and economic development were tested. Based on three case studies, this article explores how modernity was articulated through urban parks, ironworks, and infrastructures. The three cases speak of both depletion and conservation; they exemplify the patterns through which, in the very making of modernity, Italian society articulated its relationship to nature in an attempt to overcome customary rights and the traditional rural organisation of society. Forests were constructed as socio-ecological spaces reflecting Italy’s contested and heterogeneous modernisation process through which political tensions, social conflicts and economic development theories were inscribed on transformed landscapes.

    I boschi alpini nell’inchiesta Inea sullo spopolamento montano2019In: Via dalla montagna.: ‘Lo spopolamento montano in Italia’ (1932-1938) e la ricerca sull’area friulana di Michele Gortani e Giacomo Pittoni / [ed] C. Lorenzini, A. Fornasin, Udine: Forum Editrice, 2019, 1st, p. 19-31Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Questo saggio si propone di analizzare il ruolo assegnato ai boschi e all’economia forestale nell’ambito dell’indagine su Lo spopolamento montano in Italia, avviata sul finire degli anni Venti e pubblicata tra il 1932 e il 1938 a cura del Consiglio nazionale delle ricerche e dell’Istituto nazionale di economia agraria (d’ora in avanti Inea). Si tratta di una fonte tutt’altro che omogenea in materia poiché, pur interessandosi alle zone in cui era concentrata la maggior parte della superficie forestale italiana, le varie parti che compongono l’inchiesta si occupano delle condizioni e dell’utilizzo dei boschi in maniera non sistematica. Nei paragrafi che seguono, dopo aver illustrato brevemente il contesto in cui vennero realizzate le ricerche che confluirono nell’inchiesta, proporremo una breve panoramica sui primi cinque volumi, quelli che corrispondono all’area dell’arco alpino italiano (Inea 1932-1938, voll. I-V). Abbiamo scelto di escludere da questo confronto i due volumi dedicati all’area appenninica non tanto perché non riteniamo utile (o praticabile) un confronto tra montagna alpina e appenninica, quanto perché, a differenza della prima, la seconda è coperta solo parzialmente dall’inchiesta sullo spopolamento montano.

    Cultivating Arid Soils in Libya and Brazil during World War Two: The Two-fold War between Colonial and Neo-colonial Experiences2019In: Global Environment, ISSN 1973-3739, E-ISSN 2053-7352, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 154-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper compares two schemes of agrarian transformation that occurred during World War Two in Libya and northeast Brazil, undertaken by the Italian fascist regime and US private and governmental officials respectively. Although developing different historical trajectories, these similar efforts aiming to convert desert and semi-arid areas into productive fields intertwined with military services and reflected colonial and post-colonial appropriations in the Global South. The article demonstrates how both Libya and Brazil represented militarised environments and contested spaces well beyond the WW2 timeframe and how the colonial expansion projects that preceded and resulted from WW2 combined military campaigns and mastery over nature. Our analysis builds upon Italian and US primary sources and scholarly publications in environmental history.
