Summer of 2023

We have felt that we listen to a word, “record breaking temperature”, every summer. In fact, in the middle of July 2023, a heatwave is sweeping across parts of southern Europe and north-west Africa. As a result, it will cause potential record-breaking temperatures in the days. In fact, temperatures are expected to surpass 40 Celsius in parts of Spain, France, Greece, Croatia and Turkey.

In Italy, temperatures could reach as high as 48.8 Celsius. A red alert warning has been issued for 10 cities, including Rome, Bologna and Florence. On July 11th, a man in his forties died after collapsing in northern Italy. Italian media reported that the 44-year-old worker was painting zebra crossing lines in the town of Lodi, near Milan, before he collapsed from the heat. He was taken to hospital where he later died.
