An Incinerator plant in Switzerland. How can we find the way to balance our needs without damaging the environment? A double-edged role is played by technological progress, a danger and a real chance of salvation at the same time? This is the main focus of my work. #earth#environment#co2#nature#balance#climatechange#industrial#gfx#technology#future
Few of my pictures like this one I shot while flying over the Rotterdam’s port were selected for a show in Milan to learn more about climate change trough an experience exhibition by National Geographic Photography From 7 March until May. A special thanks to @antoniocarloni to make this possible. #climatechange@natgeo#rotterdam#co2#future#natgeoexperience#gfx
A huge greenhouse in Switzerland. Here the CO2 to grow the plants is captured from air and send it by pipes inside the farm. This is an innovative project to capture the CO2 by two young entrepreneurs.

#NatGeo100Contest@natgeo hit 100 million followers! To celebrate they are having a photo contest for the next 24 hours only. To submit, simply post your most Nat Geo inspired photo on your feed using the hashtag #NatGeo100Contest. The top 10 photos will be posted on @natgeo and the winner gets a photo trip to Tanzania. Good luck! Here is one of my most popular shot on Instagram from ‘Hunger Solutions’ story I’ve done for @natgeo about the future of farming. A strawberry greenhouse in the Netherlands.
From my latest assignment for @nytmag I shot this big greenhouse in Hinwil, Switzerland. Here the CO2 necessary to feed the plants is captured from air by a machine on top of an industrial site and sent to these plants. The two young entrepreneurs that invented this system are aiming to stop #climatechange with their invention.

My latest assignment for @nytmag was about two young entrepreneurs and their technology. They think they can remove carbon from the air and put a dent to #climatechange. —— Here the original caption: A novel product or process often replaces something already in demand — LED bulbs displaced kerosene bulbs, which in turn displaced kerosene and wax candles. If it is better or cheaper — and especially if it is better AND cheaper — it usually wins in the marketplace. A tiny Swiss company now thinks that it can do just that for carbon capturing: removing carbon from the air at prices cheap enough to matter. If this gas — carbon dioxide (CO₂) — could be removed from the air for commercial purposes, its removal could have a profound eﬀect on the future of humanity. @lucalocatelliphoto photographed Christoph Gebald, left, and Jan Wurzbacher, the founders of Climeworks, at their plant in Hinwil, Switzerland.

Inside a 10 hectares tomato greenhouse in the Netherlands. It’s unbelievable how productive tomato crops can be with this advanced Dutch technology which can produce up to 10 times the amount of tomatoes than a standard crop using 95% less water. Producing more with less is the aim of the horticulture revolution in this country. As an Italian I was also surprised by the taste of the tomatoes. Is this the future of farming? Is this way we can produce huge amount of vegetables without asking too much to our planet? It might be we are all confused about what it could be the best solution, but for sure we need to do something to save ourselves from climate catastrophe and hunger in the next decades. Shoot for @natgeo as part of the Hunger Solutions story. #agriculture#future#farming#netherlands#climatechange#tomatoes#crops#greenhouse#planet#earth2050
Carrara marble’s quarries, where the excavations shapes the mountains and create an iconic landscape of the human impact on the planet. The white marble rocks has been used for most famous statues, buildings, pavements in human history. In the last 30 years have been excavated more than the almost 2000 years before. #anthropocene#marble#italy#mountains#impact#gfx50s
On top of a mountain in Carrara, Italy. Clouds and light rain don’t stop operations on these marble quarries. The demands of the Carrara’s famous white marble from all over the world is altering continuously the landscape. #anthropocene#marble#impact#environment#mountains#future#planet#gfx50s
