I rifiuti a Murgia Timone
Waste Murgia Timone continue to hinder tourism hiking in the Park
Why not exclude more drastic solutions
The place is the area of Murgia Timone, otherwise said "Belvedere". There are several dozen each year thousands of tourists and citizens that make stage during daylight hours to enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
Numerically lower night visitors, as we've reported several times leave, with the signs of their passage, a bleak scenario between personal effects and remains of dinner with crib at night in perspective.
As A result of the passes and numerous reports, We try to make a statement about the past year, in view of the opening of the new tourist season.
Certainly the desired greater coordination among the various law enforcement agencies and the operators of the Park, in order to ensure a more prolonged and deterrent in, not materialised: We highlight that appeals about it were completely ignored.
On the other side on the front of the municipal, the attention devoted by the municipality of Matera were certainly more obvious with the explicit involvement of the alderman to the branch that has prepared an ecological operators use weekly. However the situation is still far from normal, as the pace of accumulation of waste is likely to require a daily collection service (especially on holidays).
The result is that this problem continues to be a great deterrent to takeoff tourism hiking in the Park of the Murgia Materana: a potentially international tourism, not stereotypical, generally more interested in discovering unique and authentic aspects of territories, that to follow quick and prepackaged itineraries: at a glance, a real strategic asset that can give a lot to the local economy.
Ask at this point to the municipality of Matera the effort, through essential education campaigns and environmental communication addressed to the entire citizenry and a more employment-friendly operators, to bring the problem solving.
Where the budgetary constraints do not allow an alternative option would be to experience the nocturnal closing periods, faces from one hand to protect the most sensitive periods for tourism, on the other to place particular emphasis to the citizenship issue dell ’ obligation to respect the common heritage; could this experiment result followed a period of closure, a new open period, returning for a new closure where again the abandonment uncontrolled waste.
It is certainly not completely painless solution, but it cannot be excluded that it may be more effective than many other initiatives, as shown in other protected areas.
