Nuclear Voyage

This book has a definite aim: to give a voice and visual experience to an experience, the of atomic energy in Italy, which came to a sudden halt exactly twenty years ago.

The experience of revisiting the places where nuclear energy was developed in Italy and the ‘winding paths of its history’ through the eyes of the artists who have joined forces to produce this book prompts a number of thoughts: for my own part, I would like to stress the vital role that knowledge, practical skill and faith in public institutions have played in the creation of the Italian nuclear research plants and power stations.
