Designer(s): The very name of the "H2O New Scenarios for Survival" non-profit association communicates the vital need to tackle environmental problems through the fundamental formula whereby there can be no protection of the environment without true development, true peace and true growth in human dignity and that, vice versa, we will never achieve development, peace and justice without respect for the environment. Books are a still important testimony if, as in the case of Acqua dueO, they contain sketches, designs and dreams supporting a civic, social and ethical commitment. In the current socio-economic situation, we thought that the only path to take in order to publish Acqua dueO book was to stimulate a sort of “popular shareholding” that, by using everybody's resources, acted as the glue to reach the goal of this new awareness campaign. To that end, the non-profit association H2O has taken the burden of looking after the sale, at a social price, of the designs and sculptures provided by the architect Riccardo Dalisi to finance the costs of translation and press.


Entry Description:

For the wealthy West opening the faucet and enjoying the most precious asset nature can offer us without limits or problems is a routine gesture taken for granted, yet a significant part of the planet is deprived of this gift, with all the consequences that entails to life as a whole.
Each of us, individually, must take as much responsibility for this situation as possible and consequently direct our efforts towards it.
This book, intended to support one of the most important battles of our time that of a public water supply for everyone aims to offer its contribution to understanding how important water is to the material and spiritual life of a human being. Just the idea of the much feared water wars in the not-so-distant future is enough. To this end, in the first part of the volume we will try to demonstrate, with some examples, the efforts of the people who have dedicated and are still dedicating their energy to the problem of water, each in his/her own field and his/her own specific way.
From the battle of those who struggle against privatization in our country to those who want to lend a helping hand to the poorest and most unfortunate people of whom the so-called first world wants to take advantage for the sake of the unjust profits it has made its life priority.
In the second part we will try to enter the heart and the soul of water, its being a sacred element, its intimate life that pervades the art, the poetry, the religious sentiment of all times, from Saint Francis of Assisi to Leonardo Da Vinci.
Books are a still important testimony if, as in the case of Acqua dueO, they contain sketches, designs and dreams supporting a civic, social and ethical commitment.
In the current socio-economic situation, we thought that the only path to take in order to publish Acqua dueO book was to stimulate a sort of popular shareholding that, by using everybody's resources, acted as the glue to reach the goal of this new awareness campaign.
To that end, the non-profit association H2O has taken the burden of looking after the sale, at a social price, of the designs and sculptures provided by the architect Riccardo Dalisi to finance the costs of translation and press.
