The abandonment of the countryside
Campaigns throughout Italy is empty! Each field produces fruits, vegetables, wheat and ultimately the food in Italy are less, exactly 27% less, and there are fewer breeding of domestic animals, were half of those who were ten years ago, 198mila closed stables!
In these conditions it is easy to see that only 3% of the land is managed by young people under 35 years.
The abandonment of the land has a high hazard that translated means there is greater risk of floods and landslides.
People who spend their free time in the country
However, many people spend their free time to the cultivation of a campaign. The ISTAT multipurpose household surveys (in particular "The citizens and the free time"), produces evidence on the Italian population who devotes part of the leisure activities of the garden care / garden in 2006 and 37% of people with more than 11 years (19.5 million Italians) dedicated to the cultivation of a campaign of their time. A recent survey Nomisma / Demeter (December 2009) confirmed the indications from ISTAT, highlighting how the cultivation of a garden as a hobby interests around 41% of the population for a period exceeding 10 hours per week (about 2 hours day).
From an ecological fund Universal Studio U.S. NGO found that in 2020 there will be food for all the exponential increase in population and climate change.

Irrigation is a public good
Particular attention to the problems of irrigation, was dedicated by subsequent legislation in 1865, which in addition to encouraging the emergence of several consortiums of private irrigation in character, he recognized, with the enactment of several laws, the existence of a general interest in water sector (from 29 May 1873 to August 13, 1926 RD No. 1907). The consequence of this, it was the government financial participation in the execution of works and allocation of special taxation powers to the consortia. The innovation introduced for irrigation works has determined that, if implemented as part of a reclamation district, could be considered public.
The flap is likely to become salt
For this reason, in order to meet the increasing demands for irrigation was built a long time the problem of rational exploitation of the karst aquifer and its coastal effluenze sorgentizie. This important water resources is threatened by high risk of contamination by salt weathering processes floating on the water balance of salt water intrusion marina, mainly driven by uncontrolled pumping of more than 75 thousand wells.
Among the enormous waste that remains through the coastal springs flowing annually into the sea without being used, and for this reason, the Consortium of Reclamation conducted studies for their use.
