An interesting dissemination activity at which I was called to participate, was The Plastic Concert, in Messina (Sicily, Italy), by the association FuoriDiMe. This association is really active in environmental safeguarding and protection of beaches. The directors of the association (all young with great energy and ideas) organised this wonderful event, where plastic pollution was the main focus. I was invited to talk about plastics and microplastics contamination in the ocean and in the Mediterranean Sea.
The music master David Carfi authored the piano rhapsody of the concert basing it around the plastic, that “is a great evil nowadays, but will be the worse evil in the future”, like he said before its piano performance.
The dinner was absolutely plastic free with corn flour manufactured dishes. It was an amazing and inspirational evening, wonderful to be a part of!
