The chapter Water documents the alarming anthropization of the 7400 kilometers of coast of the country. Land revisits the long term scars left by 5 of the main earthquakes of the last 40 years. The chapter Air is a visual investigation of the most polluted industrial towns of Italy. And finally the chapter Fire focuses on the four active volcanos in the country, a unique environment of fragile coexistence between humans and nature.

The stylistic approach utilized in the work follows the dogma of experimental uniformity characteristic of the collective, so that the work, although photographed by four different authors, is highly homogeneous.
