Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to investigate the new direction taken by the environmental policies, starting with the announcement of the Italian Government of the preparation of a Green Act and the recovery of some key concepts such as ecological footprint, carrying capacity and sustainability indicators that are animating the dialogue between associations and institutions. A dialogue that affirms the end of the oil era and puts forward a real revolution phase that points to the green economy to recuperate the territories and solve unsolved environmental problems, inherited from the twentieth century, by implementing today and in the future the best practices to exit from the crisis and boost Italy’s economic, industrial, cultural and environmental development.
