Snam presents "Sustainable Paths – The Ticino Park" at the Turin International Book Fair
Turin, 14 May 2016 – Snam presents a new volume, dedicated to the Ticino Park, in the "Sustainable Paths" book series. The series is conceived and developed by Snam, in collaboration with Il Sole 24 Ore Cultura, with the aim of enhancing the natural beauty of the Italian parks and to raise awareness of the Company's commitment to environmental protection and vegetation and morphological restoration.
The book, which is endorsed by the Italian Ministry of Environment, has been presented at the Turin International Book Fair at the presence of journalist Antonio Cianciullo, specialized in evironmental and sustainability issues, who edited the book, the Director of the Lombard Park of the Ticino Valley Claudio Peja, and Snam.
As the previous ones, which focus on the Nebrodi Park, the Park of Julian Alps, and the Majella Park, the book describes the effective integration between the naturalistic area and the gas pipelines that run through it. The Ticino Park is an important ecological corridor between the Alps and the Apennines and lies on the Po Valley, a geographical area closely connected with Italy’s energy development and Snam’s history. It was here that Italy's conversion to methane began after the Second World War and where, over the years, the network of pipelines gradually extended across the whole country, now stretching over more than 32,000 kilometers, being still nowadays the central hub of Italy’s energy supply. The book also features a preface written by Giampiero Sammuri, president of Federparchi Europarc Italia, and a "riverside tale" by the writer Gianni Biondillo, revolving around the cohabitation of the four elements along the Ticino riverbank.
The "Sustainable Paths" book series is part of Snam’s commitment to social responsibility, aimed at fostering a transparent dialogue with communities and areas where the Company operates, also contributing to spread a culture of protection and promotion of the Country’s natural heritage.
