BELLADANZA AS "COLANDER" (01.04.1990)

The video shows the inauguration of Belladanza, ready to be filled with 1.8 million square meters of waste material.
Plainly visible on the vertical walls are plastic tarpaulins that are intended to contain the liquid exuded from the toxic waste and to keep it from percolating toward the water table. The tarpaulin, however, has been placed only on areas that are vertical. None of the horizontal part - that is, the base – is protected by the plastic, leaving for posterity only a layer of permeable clay to protect the water table from contamination.

     
  DANGER OF LANDSLIDE (29.02.1992)

This video shows the area where the Stazione di Trasferenza was built and where the much extolled Centro Integrato dei Rifiuti is supposed to be sited. It documents the fact that not only is the entire zone geologically unstable but is slowly collapsing.
     
  THE DISASTER OF 05/03/1992, WHICH REMAINS UNPUNISHED

The video shows the Gracciano River completely covered by industrial toxic wastes – easily recognizable by their color – which flow after a few hundred meters directly into the Tiber. The cause of this immense environmental disaster still remains unknown, and no one has yet been punished for it. At the moment we can identify only one responsible party: “The Monster of Belladanza.”
     
  THE TOXIC INDUSTRIAL MUD (07.03.1992)

This video shows the industrial toxic wastes that have been illegally disposed of in Belladanza. It is the same kind of muddy substance that totally polluted the Gracciano River and then flowed into the Tiber. This leads us to believe that the base of the dump, which is totally composed of clay, is completely permeable and that the situation constitutes a veritable “Ecological Bomb” that could explode at any time, contaminating the ground water table as well as our Tiber River and poisoning the thousands of people who live in the proximity of the landfill.
     
  THE INDIFFERENCE OF EX-MAYOR ADOLFO ORSINI (12.03.1992)

A week after the environmental disaster at the Belladanza landfill, there has been no change in the situation. The toxic industrial mud has been slowly dissolving and running into the Tiber via the Gracciano River without anyone becoming the least bit concerned about the slowly worsening disaster. Not even Adolfo Orsini, who then held the office of Mayor, took an interest in providing a timely resolution to the disastrous Tenvironmental situation at Belladanza. It must be remembered that Ex-Mayor Orsini (now President of Arusia) was determined at all costs to establish Belladanza as a waste disposal facility and that he convinced the citizens of the absolute security of the system.
     
MAKING MONEY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HEALTH (07.04.1993)

This video shows that the landfill management does not cover the waste with the 15 centimeters of dirt that is required in order to prevent nasty odors and the scattering of trash by the wind throughout the valley. By not putting down the obligatory daily layer of dirt, Sogepu Srl has saved a great deal of money and – above all – has thereby left room for a 10% increase in the total amount of trash that the landfill will hold, thus increasing its revenues to the detriment of the health and quality of life of the citizens.
     
  ANOTHER UNPUNISHED DISASTER (03.01.1995)

Yet again the Monster of Belladanza pollutes the Gracciano and Tiber Rivers.

Another environmental disaster remains unpunished.

The images speak for themselves….
