CRUST workshop (9-10th july Perugia). Best poster prize to our Francesca Ferrario ;)

On the 9th and 10th o July, we join to the CRUST workshop on structural geology and active tectonics, in memory of Prof. Giampaolo Pialli. Giampaolo Pialli was a brilliant structural and regional geologist of the University of Perugia suddenly died 20 years ago, at the age of 59. The “CRUST” meeting had the main…

Field reconnaissance in the epicentral area of the 1808 Pellice Valley earthquake

Pellice Valley lies in the SW Piedmont region (N Italy), in a structurally complex area where the Alps-Apennines junction is located. Piedmont is a region where a low seismic release rate is domiant, except for the so-called Pinerolese seismic zone and for some historical events, including the damaging 1808 Pellice Valley seismic sequence (Mw max…

That’s why we here planned an offshore…

Sampling for paleomag analysis with UniTO.

Emanuele Scaramuzzo is presently balancing geological cross-sections encompassing an area between Lake Lugano, and Lake Maggiore, a key area for understanding the tectonic history of this sector of the Southern Alps. A great help will come from a collaboration with Elena Zanella and her enthusiastic research team. They’ll study the “magnetic fingerprint” of a series…
