A landfill proposed by the city of Florence
for a site in a pristine section of the Mugello Valley will destroy
wildlife habitats and farmland, and it will drain into the watershed
of the Sieve River (ironically carrying contaminated water back
to Florence). This page has photos of the area that will be destroyed
by the landfill. Numerous residents and land owners of the Mugello
Valley oppose the dump (discarica) and the negative impact
it will have on the environment. Moreover, a geological study
of the area deemed the site unsuitable for such a landfill. We
at the Mugello Valley Archaeological Project support the opponents
of the discarica. Please voice your concerns with international
environmental advocacy groups and provide them with the address
of this web site.
