Eight out of ten cities pay a lien on smog;

85% is in fact below sufficiency for air quality: the "tail lights" are "Turin, Rome, Palermo, Milan and Como", which take a zero vote. It emerges from the new report by Legambiente ' Mal'aria 'which analyzes pollution over a five-year period (from 2014 to 2018) taking into consideration the values ​​of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The report - presented on the eve of the entry into force of the anti-smog measures in various areas of the country on the basis of the agreement for the areas of the Po valley - with this special edition the report cards on air pollution are assigned to 97 Italian cities, thanks to a comparison of the average annual concentrations of fine particles (Pm10 and Pm2.5) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). 

"Only 15% of the cities have reached a sufficient mark in the five years - it is explained - Sassari (score 9), Macerata (vote 8), Enna, Campobasso, Catanzaro, Grosseto, Nuoro, Verbania and Viterbo (vote 7), L 'Aquila, Aosta, Belluno, Bolzano, Gorizia and Trapani (grade 6) ".

"To protect people's health - declares Giorgio Zampetti, general manager of Legambiente - one must have courage and consistency in defining the priorities to be faced and financed. Cities are at the center of this challenge. Furthermore, a different policy is needed that does not only think about blocks traffic and the weak and sporadic anti-smog measures. The Italian government, thanks to the Recovery fund, has a unique opportunity to truly modernize the country, choosing the path of fighting the climate crisis and ecological reconversion of the Italian economy - observes - do not miss this important opportunity and restart from the cities by encouraging the use of public transport, enhancing the sharing mobility network and doubling the cycle and pedestrian paths ".
