DIAPASON LIFE+ final conference

Hotel Forum,
Roma, Italy
+ Google Map

L’Europa è sistematicamente raggiunta da aria proveniente dal Sahara. L’Italia si trova al centro di questi percorsi, con le note ricadute di “piogge rosse” e le ondate di calore. L’aria sahariana porta con sè le frazioni più fini delle sabbie desertiche, quelle inalabili, quindi rilevate dalle centraline “PM10” che misurano l’inquinamento dell’aria. Ciò avviene mediamente il 20% dei giorni dell’anno. E’ scientificamente dimostrato che queste avvezioni di sabbie del Sahara sono associate ad un aumento della mortalità e ad effetti…
