Foreste, prevenzione dagli incendi e sicurezza ambientale (“Forests, fire prevention and environmental safety”) is a book edited by Francesco Colosimo, Roberta Maletta, Giuseppe Mendicino, and Salvatore Siviglia, developed in the working group of CeSMMA, Centro Studi per il Monitoraggio e la Modellazione Ambientale, at the Università della Calabria. It was designed by Antonio Iaconesso at Fullfox Studio, combining Geomanist and Minion, and published by Rubbettino Editore.
The forest heritage of the Calabria region assumes a role of significant public and private interest. It represents about 41% of the regional territory and gives it an identity expressed in terms of economic capital and historical, biological and cultural heritage. Woods and their management also have a strategic role in the fight against climate change, in landscape and biodiversity protection activities, as well as in the prevention of hydrogeological problems and water regulation.
