First, we show how a particular set of socio-environmental relations and entanglements has characterized this region since the unification of Italy in the mid-nineteenth century. The chapter initially delineates the main theoretical and conceptual approaches underpinning our understanding of ssyngedouw water resources are enmeshed with multiscalar processes related to technology and the nation-state. We examine those relations and entanglements through considering the techno-natural water infrastructures on the island and how they express particular political and social power configurations.
The chapters are grounded on a range of political-ecological perspectives and present conceptual debates based on empirical evidence from research on water-related topics from Europe and Latin America.

The veiled subterranean networking of water facilitates the severing of the intimate bond between use value, exchange value and social power.
We focus on how the perceived, and occasionally real, water scarcity on the island may be understood as a socio-environmental or techno-natural problem deriving from a combination of ecological, political and socio-economic factors. First, we show how a particular set of socio-environmental relations and entanglements has characterized this region since the unification of Italy in the mid-nineteenth century. These relations have proven to be extremely resilient over time because of their ability to adapt to changing political and economic contexts. We examine those relations and entanglements through considering the techno-natural water infrastructures on the island and how they express particular political and social power configurations. Our main empirical focus is on the Sicilian water crisis of summer , which was a particularly revelatory moment as far as the socio-natural power relations involved in access to water were concerned. The prolonged interruptions of water supply between May and September created considerable urban social unrest and brought the water issue to the centre of an extremely polarized and intense public debate.
