Secondo Franchi (1859–1932) was one of the most important geologists of the Regio Ufficio Geologico of Italy. In collaboration with his colleagues of the Turin office, starting from 1888 Franchi surveyed in detail the Western Alps to contribute to the new Geological Map of Italy at the 1:100,000 scale. Franchi’s studies contributed to the definitio...

Antonio Stoppani marks the beginning of petroleum geology in Italy, stimulated by the developments of the newborn American oil industry (1859). Soon after the Italian unification, petroleum exploration was carried out in many areas of the Country, which generated the elaboration of several technical and statistical reports carried out by the Corps...

Molta confusione è stata fatta nel tempo riguardo il Lago di Leprignano. Leprignano è l'antico nome dell'abitato di Capena, (provincia di Roma), un piccolo borgo medioevale ubicato su di un rilievo costituito prevalentemente da terreni piroclastici e delimitato da valli che ospitano alcuni torrenti, affluenti del F. Tevere. Nella valle del Fosso di...

L’arco si è formato a causa dell’...

The early geological studies of Libya were carried out by Rolland (1880) who made the first geological map. Nevertheless, Italian geologists have conducted pioneering studies, and accurately described the stratigraphical architecture of the country. Taramelli and Bellio (1890) published a volume devoted to the geography and geology of Africa, in wh...

One hundred years ago in 1915 ‘Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane’ by Alfred Wegener was published, destined to become one of the most controversial geological opus in the first half of the twentieth century. Wegener is the first to combine the most diverse geological (sensu lato) evidences in a single great synthesis. Nonetheless, apart from...

After a long ‘epistemological sleep’ of almost two centuries, a renewed interest is finally focusing the pivotal role of Italian scientists in the early development of Earth Sciences. Study after study, the key contribution of prominent pre-unitarian Italian scientists from Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519), to Giovanni Battista Brocchi (1772-1826) has...

The History of Geosciences Section (SSG) of the Geological Society of Italy started its activity in december 2012 to promote studies and researches on the work of geologists, naturalists and philosophers who influenced the development of geological science. The aim of the SSG is the reconstruction of the history of geology through the definition of the role played by scientists, the description of places of geological interest and the reconstruction of the events that characterized the geological sciences. SSG is managed by a committee of his members and is open to anyone with an interest in the History of geology. SSG is a section of the Geological Society of Italy, founded in Bologna on September 29, 1881, the oldest and most representative Italian scientific association in the field of geosciences. The Geological Society of Italy is committed to the advancement, promotion and dissemination of geological knowledge in their theoretical and applied aspects. The SSG activity is promoted by posts on the blog www.geoitaliani.it.
