"A Day in Germany" offers a fresh perspective, seen from above, of present-day Germany in a single “recomposed” day. It’s a country that undergoes profound changes as it is committed to a radical energy transition: it will abandon nuclear power by 2022 and develop ‘green’ energy . This challenge profoundly transformed its urban and rural landscapes that still carry the traces of a partition that, even after 25 years of reunification, has not completely been erased.
