New album: Asbestos roof

15 June 2009Categories:

The roof of my building in Rome, covered with a bituminous compound containing asbestos. I posted these images, taken in June 2009, to denounce the poor state of preservation of the material, which thankfully, after years of battles, was finally removed in summer 2011.

In my condo very few people were aware of the risk they were exposing us and our children, and in the end the main reason, which convinced the assembly to give the green light to the reconstruction works on the roof, was the occurrence of abundant water infiltration in the apartments of the upper floors.
