Malapolvere. Una città si ribella ai «signori» dell’amianto Silvana Mossano Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Casale Monferrato è diventata la città simbolo di una tragedia sociale legata alla lavorazione dell’amianto, con cui si otteneva l’eternit, materiale ampiamente utilizzato nelle costruzioni edili e prodotto dalla multinazione omonima, oggi condannata ad uno storico risarcimento. Questa lavorazione è infatti causa di migliaia di lutti per mesotelioma, asbestosi e tumore polmonare, tra gli ex operai e i cittadini.
Per quasi trent’anni una giornalista vede, vive e annota le storie dolorose della città, raccogliendo testimonianze autentiche e riportando la cronaca di decenni di rapporto con la lavorazione dell’amianto, di sviluppo economico, di malattie professionali e di battaglie.


Casale Monferrato has become the symbolic city of a social tragedy tied to the processing of amianto, from which the eternit was produced. Eternit is a registered trademark for fibre cement, often applied in building and construction materials, and the name of the multinational company that produces it and that has recently been sentenced to pay a historical compensation for damages. This processing is the cause of thousand of deaths between workers and citizens caused by mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer.
For about thirthy years a reporter has seen, lived and recorded the painful stories of the town, collecting true stories and reporting the account of decades of relationship with the processing of amianto, of economic development, of professional diseases and conflicts.
