Every object we use in our lives has a story and has travelled to get to our homes: a light bulb, a glass of wine, a heather broom are different objects. But the reason for their paths towards us is the same, namely the need to protect ourselves from the force of fire when it becomes fire. Davide Ascoli tells the story of resistant and resilient landscapes, of “fire-smart” solutions that prevent disasters and support the local economy.
