The exceptionally numerous and diverse environmental criticalities poisoning the province of Brescia (Italy) make this territory a representative case for understanding how current development models are absolutely unsustainable and destructive to the environment and people. The lack of laws regulating waste disposal, mafia infiltration and the pursuit of maximum profit by industrialists have over time created an apparently efficient economic system but with disastrous consequences for the area and its inhabitants. The incidence of cancer and other pathologies is much higher here than in the rest of the country; moreover, the province can boast the presence of one of the largest incinerators in Europe, an enormous concentration of landfills, the largest number of radioactive sites and intensive farms in Italy (there are more pigs than inhabitants), one of the two worst contamination from PCBs never registered in the world.
