Sono passati vent’anni da quell’11 settembre in cui la città di New York si tingeva di grigio dopo l’attacco aereo alle Torri gemelle, tra le macerie, lo sconcerto e il dolore. Una polvere tossica si espandeva sulla metropoli statunitense, lasciando delle conseguenze fisiche sulla salute dei cittadini che stanno emergendo ancora oggi. Un panorama desolante che due decadi dopo si rivive dall’altra parte dell’oceano, in Afghanistan, dove civili innocenti perdono i diritti e la vita, mentre la violenza invade le città. Per approfondire si può leggere l’inchiesta “Fraternità e guerra nel nuovo secolo“, pubblicata sul numero di settembre della rivista Città Nuova, a cura di Carlo Cefaloni.
