The video ACQUA bene comune (Water as a common good) made by Margine Operativo tells the story and the reasons for the battle for public water through a montage that alternates and interweaves the main national mobilizations (up to March 26, 2011) with local initiatives, the voices and interventions of water movement activists with data that photograph the situation in Italy and around the world regarding water resources.
The documentary tells the story of how in Italy the importance of the water issue has reached over time a strong social awareness and a widespread territorial diffusion, so much so as to be able to play the challenge of the referendum, aggregating different cultures and experiences and making the battle for water the paradigm of another model of society.
