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...
Article
Since 1873, the Geological Survey of Italy has conducted field research aimed at the realization of the official detailed scale geological map of the country. However, among these maps, the Geological Survey cartographic series also includes the Geological Map of Italy at 1:1,000,000 scale. This map, in addition to its intrinsic scientific signific...

The paper outlines the birth and development of petroleum resources mapping in Italy. Starting with the pioneering works of Antonio Stoppani, who in 1866 published the first map of petroleum zones of the Emilia region, thematic cartography went hand in hand with the preparation of the geological map of Italy, a project promoted by the government as...
Article
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...

Ponte Sfondato è il toponimo di una frazione del comune di Montopoli di Sabina, in provincia di Rieti. Questa denominazione deriva dalla presenza nell’area, fino al 1961, di un arco naturale che sovrastava il torrente Farfa, originato da un particolare tipo di fenomeno erosivo verificatosi probabilmente nel XV sec. L’arco si è formato a causa dell’...
