Keywords: Ornamental stones and ceramics Petrolgy of magmatic and metamorphic rocks Building materials

1) Studies concerning the relationship between petrographic – mineralogical – physical - mechanical characteristics, and the durability of building stone materials used in urban flooring.

2) Mineralogical-petrographic and geochemical studies of ornamental rocks and minerals and of ceramics from archaeological sites and monuments.

3) Petrology of Permian and Tertiary magmatic rocks within the CARG project coordinated by ISPRA and Provincia di Bolzano, Provincia di Trento and by Regione Lombardia.

4) Petrology of austroalpine metamorphic rocks in the Nonsberg area (Ulten Zone) and in the Southern Alps.

5) Radioactivity and radon emanation of stone materials used for buildings interiors.



1) Studies concerning the relationship between petrographic – mineralogical – physical - mechanical characteristics, and the durability of building stone materials used in urban flooring are carried out in order to determine their optimum use. The studies are targeted primarily to investigate the behaviour of the types of sandstone traditionally used in Apennines and Po Valley area.

2) Are studied and classified natural and artificial stones placed in monuments to investigate their nature and origin and create a diagnostic mapping on their state of deterioration. Are studied and classified for archaeometric purposes, natural and artificial stone materials, tools, jewelry and ceramics from the archaeological excavations carried out in the Sultanate of Oman, Turkey, Syria and Turkmenistan.

3) Petrology of Permian and Tertiary magmatic rocks within the CARG project coordinated by APAT and Provincia di Bolzano, Provincia di Trento and by Regione Lombardia. Are carried out studies on the Permian volcanic and plutonic rocks of the Atesino and Trumplino Volcanic Group and on the Monte Croce, Bressanone-Ivigna to reconstruct, on the basis of geocronological data, the sequence of these magmatic events. Moreover are carried out petrological and geocronological studies on the Adamello tertiary plutonites and dikes.

4) Petrology of austroalpine metamorphic rocks in the Nonsberg area (Ulten Zone) and in the Southern Alps. Reaction bands between peridotites and gneisses are investigated in Val d'Ultimo and Nonsberg in the Hochwart area to determine the amount of the crustal fluids in the formation of these hydrated rocks and of the trondhjemitic dikes cutting the peridotites.

5) Radioactivity and radon emanation of building stone materials used for buildings interiors. These studies are carried out to determine the extent of gamma radiation and radon emanation of building materials used in interiors and to investigate the role of the accessory minerals of the rocks.
