A Month of Haiga – February 2, 2016

Today I thought I’d look at:

modern reality

The bike/walker’s path that goes from Arco to Torboli in the Trentino portion of Lake Garda passes along the river Sarca and goes through Arco’s Industrial Zone.  The photograph was taken near the end of this past summer and is of the Dana Holding Corporation‘s factory which is one of about 8 small plants (Riva del Garda is the home of the biggest factory in our area .. a paper mill).  Actually the factory is rather clean and doesn’t create ecological problems (that we’re aware of).  Arco does not have a lot of industry, in fact the economy is heavily based on tourism and the subsequent service sector of the economy.  The other area of the economy is agriculture almost exclusively at the family level.  Our ominous silence is actually the closing of the few factories we have due to the world economic crisis which has weighed heavily on Italy for the past 8 years.
