(Es)senza notte

Increasing in general luminance value of the night sky (even by 40%) generates a global “disappearing of the night”.
This phenomenon, based on anthropic origins, is called  lighting pollution.
It modifies, in a considerable way, both ecosystems, by changing circadian rhythms linked with biological life cycle of plants and animals (Dantini into Detheridge, 2003), and landscape, by modifying the perception of places and by reducing the possibility of starry sky fruition.
