Uranium Project

Italy, 2011, 43 min, Italian/English subtitles

Between the Seriana and the Vedello Valleys, in the area between Bergamo and Sondrio, lies the biggest uranium deposit in Italy and in all Europa. As it was discovered, back in the 1950s, the company Agip started exploring it, but the local population in the 1970s and 1980s boycotted the mine. The film tells the story of this protest. In 2007, as Australian Metex tried to secure the mine with a view of promoting nuclear facilities in Italy, the protest started again.
