On the fire side It wants to be a reflection that is based in part on accredited searches in documents, but above all on the author's real experience in the active fight against fires in Sardinia. This land located in the middle of the Mediterranean shares, with most of the countries that bathe in it, the fate of "land exposed to fire" (fire-prone).
This essay is a non-exhaustive disclosure on the current knowledge of the phenomenon of fires in the Mediterranean, of the changes that have occurred (adaptation of vegetation to fire; the management of fire in history and today; the ecology of fire ) and, finally, of the current structure of the powerful machine armed for its extinction. In this essay, the author attempts to compare the evolution of fire management systems in Italy and Sardinia with systems that have been established in other more technologically advanced countries, such as the USA.
Despite the absence of tolerance and the forceful fight against all fires for more than a century, the phenomenon continues to worsen and does not seem to stop with climate change: for this reason, new scenarios of coexistence with fire must be considered. they are both a need and an opportunity for change.
Fire management is the response to the only, defensive and unfortunate decision to fight fire at all costs, considered an enemy rather than an important ecological and cultural factor in our ex-farm societies.
