MILAN OF FIRE: THE HEAT ISLANDS | Episode 1 Season 2
Heat islands are urban areas where the temperature is significantly higher than the surrounding areas. In Milan, these islands occupy 80% of the urban surface, mainly due to the lack of green spaces. Materials such as asphalt, concrete and metal absorb solar heat, creating thermal hotspots with very high temperatures, up to 40-45 degrees in some areas. This phenomenon is exacerbated by climate change, which increases temperatures and extreme weather events. Watch the episode entire. "There is also a probability significantly different from zero that our future life may be in danger" - Riccardo Valentini, April 2019, Linkiesta
