The flood in Romagna is the nemesis of a Region attentive to the climate

Flood: the rain that fell on Romagna from 15 to 17 May 2023
Between 18.00 on 15 May and the same time on 17 May 2023, 100 millimeters of rain fell in Romagna and part of Emilia, rising to 200 or 300 mm in the Apennines, or respectively 100, 200 and 300 liters of water per meter framework (Source: Hydro-Meteo-Climate Service/Arpae Emilia-Romagna)

Innovando.news is a Swiss magazine on innovation literally projected towards the world, with articles published in a dozen languages, anticipating a further expansion that will soon take place, but whose managers do not deny their origins.

Although rooted in the German-speaking canton ofAppenzell Innerrhoden, the newspaper is definitely a son of that Emilia who embraced the publisher at a very young age, Andreas Arno Michael Voigt, German from Mannheim, and which gave birth over half a century ago to the director in charge, the Mirandolese Gabriel Testi.

It is with a feeling of discouragement and sadness that our editorial staff looks at the double flood in Romagna in the space of fifteen days, which brought a million people to their knees.

It does so not only because of the affliction in the hearts of those who mourn the nine dead, the 14 displaced persons and the enormous damage caused by the flooding of the rivers between the Panaro and the Riviera, but with the awareness of a sort of tragic nemesis for the efforts "scientific" of Emilia and Romagna.

In recent years, there were those who made fun of the proactivity of the Junta of Viale Aldo Moro to obtain the transfer from Reading to England of the data processing and research system of Cwithin Europe for Medium Range Weather Forecasts and to grab the headquarters of the United Nations University dedicated to big data and artificial intelligence for the management of climate change and the human habitat, punctually rewarded by the consent of the ECMWF and the UN.

History has undertaken, in the most dramatic way, on the spot and really prematurely, to confirm the usefulness of those strategic decisions, in line with the DNA of a city like Bologna, whose university has trained the European ruling classes for four centuries .

As always, the citizens of Romagna will roll up their sleeves and emerge with the same resilience that their Emilian cousins ​​demonstrated during the 2012 earthquake, just as the cancellation of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna, expected from 19 to 21 May, the result of a shrewd communication campaign, which will erase the local motorsport tradition of Enzo Ferrari, Ferruccio Lamborghini, Giampaolo Dallara, the three Circus teams and much more.

Innovating.News, the publisher, the director in charge and all the staff are at the side of the Region and its inhabitants, aware of the fact that they will be able to recover on their own as has always happened so far ...
