    Full Text Available In Friuli-Venezia Giulia region 86% of women (aged 24-64 are screened regularly, meaning every 3 years. The analysis on cross-protective activity exercised by bivalent and quadrivalent vaccines shows that the bivalent vaccine could prevent more pre-cancerous lesions and cases of cervicocarcinoma than quadrivalent, and that the latter could prevent genital warts that are not prevented by bivalent. The major number of cases avoided by the bivalent make it possible to fully offset the cost savings related to warts associated with the quadrivalent vaccine. Furthermore, a cost-effectiveness analysis shows that, considering regional tariffs, the multiple cohort (12-year-old + 25-year-old women vaccination strategy with a 90% coverage could prevent 8 cases of cervicocarcinoma and 3 related deaths more than the vaccination of only 12-year-old girls, and thus proves to be cost-effective (11,960 €/QALY.

    The constantly increasing of water demand for human consumptions has necessitated a reconstruction of the hydrogeologic characteristics and properties as well isotopic features of the aquifers of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Plain (FP). The DiSGAM and DICA have been engaged by the Hydraulic Survey of the FVG Region in order to coordinate an integrated study finalized to the FP confined and unconfined aquifer geometries reconstruction and to provide guide-lines for water rational exploitation (Agreement D.G.R. n. 1827 dd. 27.07.2007). The Friuli Venezia Giulia Plain, located in the northeastern sector of Italy, hosts well developed Plio-Quaternary unconfined and confined alluvial aquifers. The main surface drainage of the Plain is the Tagliamento River. The regional hydrogeological situation is characterized in the north by an extensive alluvial unconfined aquifer mostly contained in carbonate gravels. This area extends from the Pre-Alps to the resurgence belt. The resurgence belt is 2 to 8 km wide and 80 kilometres long. In this area the water table intersects the topographic surface forming numerous plain springs and rivers. The resurgence belt sets a geohydrological boundary between the Upper and Lower Friulian Plain. In this strip the unconfined aquifer changes into a multi-layered confined that reach a thickness of up to 500 m with a progressive increase in a westward direction towards the Adriatic Sea. In order to define underground aquifer relations and patterns, more than 1800 stratigraphic columns have been collected from different public departments water well database. Well logs have been georeferred, missing elevations calculated by regional DTM, possible correspondences controlled and datasets updated. In order to better correlate spatial data, an unique implemented lithostratigraphy legend has been created from present different ones; it is composed of: Lithological Entries (relating lithology and granulometric features; permeability linked different

    The Friuli Venezia Giulia Meteorological Union (UMFVG) is a socially usefull No Profit Organization involved in scientific dissemination of meteorology and climatology. To reach this goal the UMFVG, which involved both profesionists and passionates of weather and climate, organizes conventions, courses, conferences and publishes a quarterly journal, the "Meteorologica” (ISSN 1827-3858). UMFVG is a member of EMS. 8 years have passed since the first edition of the journal, now totally renovated with more pages and topics, part of them translated in 4 languages (Italian, English, Slovenian and German). The "Meteorologica”, edited by the UMFVG, is composed of various columns, some more popular, others more scientific, but all of them with the aim of scientific dissemination to the general public. In the actual last edition of the journal, find place the columns of ARSO of Ljubljana (Slovenia), ZAMG of Klagenfurt (Carintia-Austria) and ARPA OSMER of Udine (Italy), which comment every time the seasonal weather trend. There is also the column of CNR ISMAR, which comments the principal aspects of sea level and sea temperature in the Northern Adriatic. The magazine also host the "Climate Monitor” column edited by Major G.Guidi, forecaster of the Italian Air Force and of RAI television. Last, but not least, there are various deepenings and didactics columns in order to deepen several meteo-climatological themes. The editorial staff have to thank the passion and free will of all of those who actively worked together for the realization of this project if now the thought of delivering "Meteorologica” also in other European countries is not only an ambitious idea but a real objective.

    Full Text Available Aims: Colorectal cancer is the most common cancer in Italy, where screening programs are now in place all over the country. We conducted a research to assess whether the use and outcomes of colorectal cancer screening are different between diabetics, who are at increased risk of developing colorectal cancer, and non-diabetics in the Italian Northeastern region Friuli Venezia Giulia. Methods: This was a retrospective population-based study which used the administrative databases of the regional health information system as the sources of information. For the two screening rounds 2010-2011 and 2012-2013, we compared adherence to the program and the results of the fecal occult blood tests and of the colonoscopy among diabetic and non-diabetic residents. Results: Overall, more than 300,000 persons were invited for the colorectal cancer screening in each round. Of them, approximately 8.8% were diabetic. In the regional population, adherence to the screening program was significantly lower among diabetics than among non-diabetics. The proportion of positive fecal occult blood tests was higher among diabetics than among non-diabetics. Among diabetics, the detection rate for initial and advanced adenomas was higher than among non-diabetics, whereas no clear pattern was observed for the detection of cancers. Conclusion: In Friuli Venezia Giulia, efforts should be directed at improving the management of diabetic patients and at reducing the inequalities in access to care due to this comorbidity.

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available The objective of the present work was to set up a method of analysis of the safety levels in the wine industry, using a check list to carry out a survey on 30 wineries located in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. The checklist, based on previous studies, included more than 500 items, divided into 5 main areas: A Buildings and workplaces; B Machinery; C Logistics; D Boiler room, electricity plants and fire prevention systems; E Noise and vibrations. The classification of each of the items was based on risk frequency and seriousness of damage. In order to obtain a value as a whole, different points were assigned to each of them. The results of this work shows that workers are exposed to a variety of hazards and one of the highest scores is connected to machinery. Some of these accidents occur because machines are used for a purpose for which they are unsuitable; others because security systems have not been provided or have been taken off. Other risk areas are the fuel tank or the exhaust oil stocking room. Indoors, the most hazardous areas are the grape unloading and the workshop one. Another result was that the older wine cellars are the most dangerous. The check list can become an important instrument for prevention and a useful tool to test safety levels of the working environment.

  8. Peer-tutoring educational experiences about meteorological and climatological issues in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy)

    2017-04-01

    The aim of this work is to present some experiences of intergenerational education about meteorology and climatology issues carried out with school pupils from 6 to 19 years old, through peer-tutoring methodology. These experiences started in 2003 and each year the project involves about 500 students in Friuli Venezia Giulia region (about 8.000 km2) in northeastern Italy. A group of volunteers (older students from upper secondary school, 17-19 years old) play the role of "tutor": they receive supplementary training on meteorology and climatology, and then, during students' meetings and/or public events, they teach younger pupils how to use meteorological instruments (thermometer, hygrometer, barometer, anemometer, rain gages, etc.) and they carry out interactive experiences such as "game-experiments", to better understand some meteorological concepts, like density of fluids, and some climatological notions, like the effects of climate change with an exhibit that simulates the greenhouse effect. They also do some meteorological forecasting exercises, using meteorological maps, as if they were actual forecasters. All these activities are addressed to pupils from primary (age 6-11) and lower secondary schools (age 11-14), and both tutors and their younger "apprentices" are not only cognitively, but also emotionally involved in such learning experiences. As a second step of this educational process, after consolidating the above mentioned peer-tutoring activities, high school students hare being actively involved in developing visual tools - e.g. video-clips, interviews and cartoons - in order to communicate climate change issues in the most effective way to younger pupils. Keywords: meteorology, climatology, climate change, schools, education, communication.

    Malignant mesothelioma is closely associated to asbestos exposure. One such exposure may occur through contact with occupationally exposed household members and their belongings. This study examines the features of pleural mesothelioma attributable only to asbestos brought home by another family member. The data sources were 1063 mesothelioma cases diagnosed between 1995 and 2014, from the Friuli Venezia Giulia Mesothelioma Register. In all cases the diagnosis of mesothelioma was based on the pathology report. Exposure information and demographic data were acquired by an occupational medical standardized questionnaire/interview. Household-exposure mesothelioma cases included 33 women and 2 men. Relationships were: wives (N = 22), daughters (N = 9), sons (N = 2), and mothers (N = 2). Asbestos exposure in the workers predominantly occurred in shipyards. Out of the 35 pleural cases, 19 were epithelial, 9 biphasic, 3 sarcomatoid, and 4 not specified. The mean age at diagnosis was 77 years old. The mean latency was 59 years, with wives having a significant shorter latency than offspring. Latency was not significantly related to morphology and asbestosis. The overall mean survival was 16 months (median 11 months) but treatment was beneficial (mean 16 months vs. 7 months). Biphasic/sarcomatoid histology and presence of asbestosis were associated with a decreased survival, although not with statistical significance. Our data confirms that household exposure increases the risk for pleural mesothelioma amongst women with no history of occupational asbestos exposure. This is an ongoing problem in many countries, as well as in Italy, where the evaluation of a framework for the compensation of these cases is under debate.

    Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) is a region in Italy with very complex orography, having an annual rainfall amount that varies from about 900 mm on the coast to more than 3200 mm in the Julian Prealps. A network of 104 raingauges placed around the FVG territory was used to extract the absolute maximum rain accumulated every 6 h, during the period 16 February 2006 to 15 February 2015 (9 years). Interannual, annual, weekly and daily cycles of three classes of rain intensities are analyzed, finding that significant rainfalls (MaxRain > 5 mm) are more frequent in the May to mid-August period, while the heaviest rainfalls (> 40 mm) are more probable between May and the beginning of December, with a peak at the very beginning of November. ECMWF 6-h forecasts at 18 gridpoints (spaced at 0.25°) above the FVG region are studied for the same period, to find the maximum 6-h rain forecasted by the ECMWF model from + 6 to + 48 h and correlate it with the observed maximum rain of all the 104 raingauges. It is found that the correlation coefficient R is higher at 0000-0600 UTC and minimum at 1800-0000 UTC, while the BIAS is always negative (underestimation), varying between - 3.5 and - 6.9 mm. Looking at more homogeneous subareas, ECMWF has a much worse BIAS and RMSE for the Prealps zone, while its correlation coefficient is lower for the coastal and plains zones. For comparison, a similar exercise is repeated using a LAM model (ALADIN-ARSO), finding better BIAS and RMSE, but a lower skill for the mean correlation coefficient. Hence, a linear statistical method (multiregression with exhaustive input selection) for forecasting the maximum 6-h rain using as candidate predictors the direct model output (absolute values, anomalies, standardized values, plus mean, max and SD in time and space) is developed independently for four different sub-regions and two periods of the year starting from the ECMWF forecast. It is found that the strong BIAS in the Prealpine area can easily be removed

    Full Text Available Italian society is going through deep structural demographic and cultural changes whereby its emigration pattern has been reversed to the extent that the country is now experiencing intensive immigration. Pre-supposing the two basic characteristics of the migration routes which have become visible in the last decade – namely feminization and internal diversification of universal migrant, this article has tried to show the market typology (a characteristic not only of Italy but other Mediterranean countries of the EU which contributes to the gender differentiation of the foreigners' work, paying special attention to the position of an immigrant woman in the integration process into the native community. In that context, the analysis is directed towards the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region and the town of Trieste which have proved themselves to be unique in their acceptance of newcomers, among whom the most numerous being the ex-Yugoslavian (mainly Serbian population. Issues which have been touched include the recent history of dynamic Italian-Yugoslav relationships, the importance of the border, the daily cross-border migration mostly performed by the female workforce and the multiculturalism of Trieste as a border town. The so-called stable migration going through “family unification” has also been observed, a process responsible for the constant rise in the numbers of immigrant women and their underage children. In the way of their harmonic integration into the new society stand numerous obstacles: the language barrier, prejudice, the social invisibility of foreign women, their domestication, professional disqualification and coerced collective identity enforced by national or monoethnic associations. In school – an institution that forms a relationship with the foreign students’ mothers – attempts are being made to break free from this state of social invisibility. Similarly, in multicultural associations and societies, immigrant women

    The Italian Ministry of Agricultural Food and Forestry Policies (MiPAAF) has set up a statistical survey aimed to provide the national forecast of yields and areas related to the main Italian agricultural crops (AGRIT). The methodology is based on field surveys and remote-sensed data, covers yearly the whole national territory, and is based on 100,000 observations which are statistically selected from a predefined grid made up of about 1,200,000 georeferenced points. In 2011-2012 we determined the soil organic carbon content (SOC) of 1,160 sampling points situated in Northern Italy in the plains and hills of Veneto (VEN) and Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG), for which the land use in the period 2008-2010 was known. Samples have been subdivided in three main classes: arable crops, orchards and fodder crops. SOC was higher in FVG samples (2.48%, n=266) than in VEN samples (1.90%, n=894). The average value (2.03%) is clearly affected by the higher number of VEN samples. FVG data have been aggregated in continuous crops (maize, soybean, wheat), 2-yr rotations (maize-wheat, soybean wheat, maize-soybean), 3-yr rotations, vineyards (totally, partially and no-grassed), alfalfa, and permanent fodder crops. No significant differences were detected among the land uses due to the low number of samples in some classes, but some important findings do exist from the agronomic point of view. Fodder crops (5.65%), alfalfa (3.41%) and vineyards (2.72%) showed the higher SOC content. SOC was 2.94% and 1.39 % in the grassed and no-grassed vineyards respectively. In the arable crops the average SOC was 2.18%, ranging from 2.32% (soybean-wheat rotation) to 2.03% (continuous soybean). SOC was 2.19% in the continuous maize, with 2.23% in corn and 1.87% in silage maize. The lower values were in the maize-wheat rotation (1.53%) and the continuous wheat (1.47%). VEN data have been aggregated in continuous crops (maize, soybean and wheat), 2-yr rotations (maize-wheat, soybean-wheat, maize

    Full Text Available In Italy otters occur in two small populations in the South, while in the Alps they have been extinct for about 50 years. In Austria, the species is recovering and re-colonizing the Southern part of the country. The first record of the species in the Italian Alps goes back to 2008, when otters were found in the most upper catchment of the River Drau in the Region Trentino Alto Adige – South Tyrol. In the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia (NE Italy, in 2011 and 2012 two otters were found road killed within the catchment of the River Tagliamento. These findings prompted an otter survey, carried out in spring 2014 along the catchment of the upper Tagliamento and the Italian side of the River Slizza-Gailitz, which drains the area of Tarvisio and joins the River Drau in Austria, near Villach. The survey covered an area of 3200 km2. A total of 138 bridges and 16 stretches of 600 m were checked along the river banks for otter signs, i.e. spraints and tracks. Otter signs were found at 27 of the investigated sites, in the area of Tarvisio along the River Slizza-Gailitz (Drau catchment, but not in the catchment of the Tagliamento. Like for individuals found in Alto Adige – South Tyrol otters living in the area of Tarvisio belong to the River Drau population in Austria.

    Incidence distribution of cutaneous melanoma depends on phenotypic characteristics of population and geographic location. In Italy, in the period 1999-2003 Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) region had the second highest incidence rates for males and the third for females. We analysed melanoma and lip cancer incidence data of the FVG cancer registry for the period 1995-2005. We used Bayesian hierarchical spatial models to describe the spatial pattern by gender. We decomposed the geographical distribution of the risk in two parts: a component linked to chronic exposure and a component related to intermittent exposure. In order to model the chronic component we considered the geographical distribution of incidence cases of lip cancer, for which chronic occupational solar radiation exposure is a documented risk factor. We also analysed the distribution by site and we calculated standardised rates for body surface area. This study documents a significant gradient in the incidence of cutaneous melanoma in FVG. High-standardized incidence rates are present in the area of Trieste and in the coastal area. The descriptive analysis by age group and by site, showed risks associated with intermittent exposures in both genders. For the coastal area the risk is especially high for sites traditionally linked to high cumulative exposures (face and neck), especially among men. The results suggest diagnostic preventive interventions in the populations living in the area of Trieste, given the high rates observed in the young age groups.

    The Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe was established in 1981; since then it was been actively promoting and delivering education through a series of successful internationals programmes launched in 21 different European nations. The Eco-School Campaign aims to raise students' awareness of environment issues through classroom study, and provide an integrated system for environmental management of schools based on EMAS (with waste, water and energy management as priority areas). As a process of facilitating sustainable developpement at a local level, pupils are encouraged to take an active role in mental impact of the schools. The Eco-Schools Green Flag, awarded to schools with high achievement in their Programme, is a recognised and respected eco-label for environmental education and performance. In Italy the National Eco-Schools operator was asked to set up a ten-schools pilot programme in the region Friuli Venezia Giulia: these are very first national schools that are likely to become 'Eco-Schools'.

    "OBJECTIVES: to identify the differences among patients of general practictioners (GPs) in both Tuscany Region (Central Italy) and Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) Region (Northern Italy), which are different for drinking cultures, as to motivation of consultation, hazardous drinking and alcohol dependence, health problems, and use of health services. cross-sectional study by means of both a medical examination and a subsequent structured interview carried out with a questionnaire. Data were analysed using chi-square test, logistic regression and differences in prevalence. the study was implemented between July and November 2013 on a sample of 492 patients of 30 GPs in FVG, and 451 patients of 25 GPs in Tuscany. although patients in FVG were less likely to drink alcohol (66.7% vs. 70.9%), consumed lower amounts of alcohol on average per day per drinker (10.9 vs. 14.5 grams of alcohol), and were less likely to be hazardous drinkers (11.2% vs. 13.8%) compared to patients in Tuscany, they had a 3.6 to 4.7 times higher risk of alcohol dependence. In addition, the prevalence of diseases (in particular hepato-gastrointestinal diseases, hypertension, and psychiatric problems), smoking, and obesity/ overweighting was higher among clients of FVG, which exceed the Tuscan patients by 5-12 percentage points. Compared to Tuscany, FVG patients were more hospitalized and required more help to GPs or other people for their drinking problems. compared to Tuscan patients, GPs' patients in FVG has higher prevalence of alcohol addiction and other diseases, as well as of smoking and overweight/obesity, and higher need for health interventions as to their drinking problems."

    The white-clawed crayfish A. pallipes has suffered in recent decades a strong decline throughout its entire distributional range, mainly due to the growing number of threats coming from anthropic influence, including habitat loss and degradation, overfishing, infectious diseases, and the introduction of non-indigenous crayfish species (NICS). The species is included in the red list of the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) as a species at risk of extinction. An important go...

    Full Text Available Nel 2001 e 2002 in provincia di Gorizia (loc. Isola della Cona, Riserva Naturale Regionale Foce dell?Isonzo due giovani maschi di volpe sono stati marcati con radiocollari, al fine di raccogliere dati sulla loro dispersione. L?area di studio, di circa 20 km², presenta zone boscose, boscaglie golenali, prati umidi, canneti e barene, inserite, comunque, in un territorio soggetto ad agricoltura intensiva. Gli animali sono stati seguiti per 12 ore/notte nella prima fase e successivamente per 12 ore/settimana, suddivise in 3 turni tali da coprire l?intero arco della notte. La posizione è stata rilevata ogni 20 min. Il primo individuo (M1 è stato seguito dal 15.11.01 al 10.12.01 per 140 ore; il secondo (M2 dal 14.06.02 al 22.03.03 per 580 ore; la dispersione è iniziata il 17.11.01 per M1 e il 10.11.02 per M2. Entrambi hanno attraversato il fiume Isonzo, in un tratto ampio 145 m, in direzione Sud/Est, raggiungendo una zona agricola. In seguito non hanno mostrato la tendenza a tornare indietro, probabilmente a causa della presenza di un maschio territoriale. Durante il giorno non si sono verificati spostamenti apprezzabili. La massima area coperta per notte (metodo del Minimo Poligono Convesso è stata di 10,7 km² per M1 (settima notte e di 5,1 km² per M2 (diciassettesima notte. I punti più distanti raggiunti in linea d?aria rispetto a quello di attraversamento del fiume sono stati di 9,2 km per M1 e di 9,9 km per M2. La direzione e alcune delle traiettorie percorse sono risultate sovrapponibili per i due individui. Le convergenze di eventi che emergono dai risultati, raccolti a distanza di un anno, suggeriscono una certa obbligatorietà nei percorsi che potrebbe essere dovuta sia alla struttura territoriale che alla densità della popolazione di volpi (stimata tramite conteggio delle tane attive in 10-12 individui in periodo primaverile e in 27-30 individui in periodo autunnale. Si ipotizza una certa stabilità dei territori degli individui residenti, che emerge anche dall?uso di alcuni siti di riposo diurno comuni per M1 e M2 e dal continuo vagare di M2 in un?ampia area, anche 3 mesi dopo la dispersione. Il lavoro è stato svolto in collaborazione con la Stazione Biologica ?Isola della Cona? (SBIC e con la Cooperativa Ecothema. Si ringraziano tutti i volontari che hanno reso possibile la raccolta dati.

The whole 1983 summer was extremely warm in Europe and in particular on the Italian peninsula, from the Alps down to Sicily. Nevertheless, the day of 27 July 1983 in Friuli Venezia Giulia deserves special attention because the observed maximum temperatures did not occur during day-time but during night-time (from 23:00 up to 24:00 LT, 21:00-22:00 UTC). Peaks of 34.8°C and values of relative humidity of the order of 28% were registered by the official network of weather stations. This event interested mainly the central-eastern part of the plain of Friuli Venezia Giulia, a few kilometers far from the Slovenian border and relieves. The thermal anomalies lasted up to an hour, then temperatures decreased toward values more usual for the climate of the month. The study of this event is carried out with the aid of the AR-WRF numerical atmospheric model, initialized through the ECMWF analysis. The numerical simulations highlight the important role played by orography, jointly with the peculiar thermal structure of the atmosphere, for the enhancing of the internal wave pattern over that area. According to the sensitivity studies realized, the amplification of the internal wave pattern might represent a possible explanation for that meteorological enigma.

The changed geo-politic conditions caused the abandonment of the numerous structures and the transfer of their property from State to Region and then to local municipalities. The regional government has not defined guidelines for their re-use and the work for the Patussi barracks, done to produce a re-use program, became a case study to explore possible strategies of intervention and the right method to adopt in order to give technical support to local governments.

    Giovanna Minardi

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Jorge Eduardo Eielson is a well-known poet and plastic artist, but his narrative works remain little-known, even in his native Peru. El cuerpo de Giulia-no is a discontinous and elusive text. Written in the 1950s but not published until 1971 in Mexico, it is an undoubtedly innovative work which thwarts the readers’s expectations with its fragmentary composition, elliptical tendencies, and the underlying dislogue amongst literature, visual arts and science running throughout the text. Like a typical Eislson work, it is a ‘chaotic’ text, which brings together the themes of the indigenist conflict and the Apocalypse emboded by the crisis of language with elements of meta-theatre and science fiction. I focus on the parody of science fiction within the novel. The world of the future, that anticipated in science fiction, is, for Eielson, the present world. Thus he represents, in the contemporary context, the cultural conflict with the indigenous world though a sort of ‘alien’ invasion (indigenous people which is controlled and repressed, the origins of which can be found in the history of Peru. However, through this sort of ‘ontological break’, Eielson let us see the first steps toward the foundation of a new order out of chaos.

  10. Usefulness and skill of station-derived predictors in forecasting storm occurrence and intensity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pucillo, Arturo; Manzato, Agostino

    2013-04-01

    The Friuli Venezia Giulia region (northeastern Italy, hereafter FVG) is an area subject to frequent storm occurrences. The Regional Meteorological Observatory of Friuli Venezia Giulia (hereafter OSMER) manages a spatially dense network of meteorological stations, that provides measures with a maximum sampling frequency of 5 min. Moreover there is a C-band Doppler Polarimetric Radar that provides complete scans every 5 min during the convective events, or every 30 min otherwise. This work aims to characterize the skill of one or more predictors, that are the measurements of such meteorological stations (e.g. wind magnitude, equivalent potential temperature, moisture transport, etc.), when forecasting the highest radar Vertical Maximum Intensity reflectivity (hereafter VMI) measured on the plain and coast of FVG, used as signature of the storm occurrence and intensity. The dataset here used consists of 5-minutes maximum time-resolution VMI (used to define each event) on plain and coast areas of FVG, and 5-minutes time-resolution observations derived from 31 stations, considering a time-lag varying from 30 min to 3 h before the VMI observation. The VMI dataset spans over a period 11 years long (2000-2010) and consists of about 100,000 cases. Both a multiregression study to forecast the maximum VMI value and a classification study of the occurrence of VMI events exceeding certain thresholds have been performed.

    This study assesses the impact of immigration in Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region of northeastern Italy, on the epidemiological features of hemoglobin patterns and on prothrombotic and trisomy risk in pregnancy for patients of non-Italian origin. This study follows a series of studies on the incidence of thalassemia and other hemoglobinopathies with reduced globin chain synthesis, that were performed during the postwar (1939-45) period in Friuli Venezia Giulia following immigration into the region from Istria and Sardinia (regions of northern and central Italy). Current data show that today's constantly growing immigration into the region differs from previous decades, in terms of origin and quantity of migrants, who mainly come from third world countries. This has a significant impact on health care issues, and more specifically on prospective health screening for foreigners. The authors conclude that scholastic education and hospital services, either public or private, and voluntary associations, may contribute to solving the problem, but only in terms of training and organization, for non-European Union citizens arriving in northern Italy and neighboring areas, especially those from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and eastern Europe.

    Frangipane, Anna

    2017-04-01

    Istria stone, the shining white limestone used in Venice and quarried in the fronting Croatian peninsula, has been used, during Venetian domination, in the surrounding areas, becoming a distinctive element of their built heritage. It is the case of Friuli area (NE Italy), ruled by Venice from 1455 to 1798. Istria stone is, in fact, the distinctive building materials of important architectures of that period, as well as of traditional buildings of the area close to the see, made easily recognizable by its white characterizing color. The contribution provides a review of the main example of the built heritage of the area - whose main town, Udine, has been the siege of Venetian Lieutenant for more than five centuries - in which Istria stone has been used, referring, when possible, to archive documents and historical references.

    Fin dalle origini della sua potenza marinara Venezia è stata definita “porta d’Oriente”, non solo per i suoi stretti rapporti politico-diplomatici e commerciali con i Basileus Bizantini o con i Sultani Ottomani, ma soprattutto per l’ampia mole di transfer culturali che la Repubblica Veneta ha saputo tracciare tra la laguna e il Mediterraneo Orientale. Di questi scambi ampie tracce sono conservate negli archivi della Serenissima, come ci testimonia l’interessante contributo curato da Giovanni ...

  17. Astronomical orientation analysis of three proto-historical sites in Friuli - Italy

    Patat, Ferdinando

    2014-01-01

    In this paper we present the results of an archaeoastronomical survey of three proto-historical sites located in the high Friulian plain (Galleriano, Gradisca and Savalons), dating from the end of the Early Bronze Age (1900 B.C.) to the end of the Late Bronze Age (950 B.C.). These structures, commonly indicated as castellieri, are earthworks of quadrangular shape, with sides ranging from 140 to 250 m. At present the perimetrical earthen embankments reach a maximum base width of 18 m and an elevation of more than 5 m the surrounding plain in their best preserved parts. These three sites were often reported in the literature to have the corners aligned to the cardinal directions. Aveni and Romano (1986) included two of them (Galleriano and Gradisca) in their study of earthworks in Veneto and Friuli (Italy), tentatively proposing astronomically relevant alignments for some sides and diagonals. Inspired by this pioneering work and by the renovated archaeological interest for these sites, we obtained digital eleva...

  18. The Friuli (NE-Italy tilt/strain gauges and short term observations

    1999-06-01

    Full Text Available The tilt/strainmeter network of the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Trieste, has by now a long history of records, the Trieste Grotta Gigante horizontal pendulum station having been set up in 1959 and the Friuli tilt/strainmeter stations in 1977. Since then the stations have been continuously recording the strain-rate in one of the most seismic areas of the Alpine arc, giving invaluable information on crustal deformation in a tectonically active area. Although maintaining essentially the same mechanical features from the time of installation, the instrumentation has undergone modernization, in order to apply recent technical developments to the network. This regards mainly data acquisition, which now, except for one station, is digital. The data are all available and are stored in the Deformation-Database of the Department of Earth Sciences. At first a description of the essential technical and mechanical properties of the instrumentation constituting the network is given. The mean power spectrum of all instruments covering five decades is presented, which is a powerful means to compare the quality of different stations. Following theoretical considerations of the expected pre- or coseismic deformation accompanying local events, the observations of those events is presented, which ought to give the greatest signals. The coseismic steps are modeled for those events for which a fault plane solution was available.

    Full Text Available La città di Venezia, insieme al complesso sistema lagunare di cui fa parte e al quale è strettamente connessa, costituisce un interessante oggetto di studio per quanto riguarda l’equilibrio raggiunto nel tempo fra uomo e acqua, nello specifico, fra processi antropici e dinamiche ambientali. Le tradizionali tecniche costruttive veneziane sono uno degli esempi più evidenti di come l’ingegno umano abbia superato la sfida dell’acqua, riuscendo ad urbanizzare un ambiente inizialmente ostile e a creare le condizioni favorevoli all’abitabilità e ad uno sviluppo economico prevalentemente commerciale. Questo equilibrio era basato sulla profonda conoscenza dei processi naturali che caratterizzavano, e caratterizzano, la laguna e derivava dall’acquisizione di quella sapienza costruttiva generata dalle continue sperimentazioni nella ricerca di fondali idonei, di materiali adeguati e di tecniche rispondenti ad esigenze sempre più complesse, con un’estrema attenzione al territorio e alle sue risorse.Con l’affermarsi dell’era industriale, nel corso del diciannovesimo secolo, Venezia riformula le sue strategie di sviluppo puntando sulla costruzione di una nuova base industriale connessa al porto e sulla promozione turistica dell’isola. Il superamento della capacità di carico è sicuramente uno dei più consistenti punti di rottura di quel delicato equilibrio su cui è stata fondata la città fin dalle sue origini.L’articolo presenta una proposta progettuale di riconfigurazione della Marittima di Venezia basata sulla ridistribuzione dei flussi turistici e sull’incremento di resilienza del sistema economico, sociale ed ambientale della città, puntando sul porto come importante risorsa strategica per il territorio.

    2002-06-01

    Full Text Available High Resolution AeroMagnetic surveys (HRAM are a novel tool experimented in several countries for volcano and earthquake hazard re-assessment, ground water exploration and mitigation, hazardous waste site characterization and accurate location of buried ferrous objects (drums, UXO, pipelines. The improvements achieved by HRAM stem from lower terrain clearance coupled with accurately positioned, real-time differential navigation on closely spaced flight grids. In field cultural noise filtering, advanced data processing, imaging and improved interpretation techniques enhance data information content. Development of HRAM approaches might also contribute to mitigate environmental hazards present throughout the Italian territory. Hence an HRAM field test was performed in July 2000 in Friuli, North-Eastern Italy to assess the capabilities and limitations of HRAM over a buried pipeline and a domestic waste site. A Cesium magnetometer in towed bird configuration was used on two separate grids. Profile line spacing was 50-100 m and bird nominal ground clearance was set to 50 m. Microlevelled total field magnetic anomaly data forms the basis for subsequent advanced processing products including 3D analytic signal, maximum horizontal gradient of pseudo-gravity and 3D Euler Deconvolution. The magnetic signatures we detected and enhanced over the environmental test site area in Friuli are also compared with similar but more extensive HRAM signatures recently observed in other countries.

    For a close follow-up of large groups of pacemaker patients and for evaluation of long term pacing on a reliable statistical basis, many pacemaker centers in the world are now using computer systems. A patient data system with structured display records, designed to give complete, comprehensive and surveyable information and which are immediately retrievable 24 hours a day, on display or printed sets, seems to offer an ideal solution. The pacemaker clinic at the Regional Hospital of Udine has adopted this type of system. The clinic in linked to a live, on-line patient data system (G/3, Informatica Friuli-Venezia Giulia). The input and retrieval of information are made through a conventional keyboard. The input formats have fixed headings with coded alternatives and a limited space for comments in free text. The computer edits the coded information to surveyable reviews. Searches can be made on coded information and data of interest.

    Full Text Available The aim of the survey was to study the effect of Alpine pasture and breed on welfare of dairy cattle bred in tie-stalls in mountain area of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region. Twenty-four representative farms were divided into 4 groups following a factorial design: 2 managements (with vs. without summer grazing x 2 breeds (Italian Simmental vs. Italian Brown. Data were collected following a protocol that considers direct animals’ measures or remarks, buildings and equipments information. The results showed that summer grazing affected some physical parameters - BCS, claw conformation and injuries - and some behaviour parameters such as rising movements. In this trial the breed did not seem to markedly influence cows’ welfare, except for BCS and lie down time.

    1996-01-01

    A survey was carried out in northern Italy (Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia Regions) to assess the extension of canine heartworm disease close to the classic hyperendemic areas of the Po Valley. A filtration test on 275 privately owned dogs showed a mean prevalence of 44%, with a peak of 55% in the Venice province. A high prevalence (17%) of occult filariosis was discovered using a serological test. These values fall within the medium-high range previously reported from other Italian areas. The provinces of Pordenone, Udine, Trieste, Treviso and Belluno, where no cases had been previously reported, were found to be infected. The distribution of the infection did not differ significantly with the dogs' origin or sex. The prevalence seemed to be influenced significantly (p < 0.01) by the hosts' age, function and degree of outdoor activity, reflecting the different exposure risks.

    2016-11-01

    Solute convection in porous media at high Rayleigh-Darcy numbers has important fundamental features and may also bear implications for geological CO2 sequestration processes. With the aid of direct numerical simulations, we examine the role of anisotropic permeability γ (the vertical-to-horizontal permeability ratio) on the distribution of solutal concentration in fluid saturated porous medium. Interestingly, we find that the finite-time (short-term) amount of solute that can be dissolved in anisotropic sedimentary rocks (γ < 1 , i.e. vertical permeability smaller than horizontal permeability) is much larger than in isotropic rocks. We link this seemingly counterintuitive effect with the occurring modifications to the flow topology in the anisotropic conditions.

    2007-01-01

    The Regional Environment Protection Agency of Friuli Venezia Giulia (ARPA FVG, Italy) has performed an analysis on existing software designed to calculate magnetic induction field generated by power lines. As far as the agency's requirements are concerned the tested programs display some difficulties in the immediate processing of electrical and geometrical data supplied by plant owners, and in certain cases turn out to be inadequate in representing complex configurations of power lines. Phidel, an innovative software, tackles and works out all the above-mentioned problems. Therefore, the obtained results, when compared with those of other programs, are the closest to experimental measurements. The output data can be employed both in the GIS and Excel environments, allowing the immediate overlaying of digital cartography and the determining of the 3 and 10 muT bands, in compliance with the Italian Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 8 July 2003.

    Full Text Available Abstract From 1986 to May 1995 I collected records of signs of lynx presence in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. A series of regularly checked trail transects, explorative excursions, and the collection of second-hand observations led to a total of 150 records. They confirm lynx presence and allow an assessment of the situation. The first lynx are believed to have immigrated to the northern part of the study area from Austria. An increase and the distribution in the signs of presence show a south-westerly expansion. The trend in the Julian Alps and Pre-Alps is also increasing. Some interpretations of the status of this new population are made. The study area is in the far south-eastern Alps. This area is important as a corridor between the Alps and the Balkans, where a reintroduced lynx population exists which would be able to support the Alpine lynx population through dispersing lynx.

    Full Text Available Wine quality has been viewed as critical to the success of online businesses, with the growing understanding that it is one of the main aspects of customer satisfaction and loyalty. The aim of this research is to analyze the multi item web quality construct in its relationship with loyalty intention and satisfaction. The study aims to contribute to the literature by addressing two hypotheses: 1 Does loyalty moderate the relationship between satisfaction and the multi-item construct of web-quality? 2 Does satisfaction moderate the relationship between loyalty and the multi-item construct of web-quality? In order to answer these research questions a questionnaire and an interview were used on a sample of 2.782 users of the nine wine consortia web sites of Friuli Venezia Giulia between November 2013 and November 2014. Friuli Venezia Giulia is an Italian Region of ancient winemaking traditions situated in Italy’s northeast and borders Slovenia and Austria. The web consortia aim to regulate, promote and support the regional wine tradition in Italy and abroad. During the filed research data was gathered trough a structured questionnaire that was comprised using a multi-item scales which referred to the seven dimensions of web quality derived from the literature review (i.e., usability, design, processing speed, information quality, contact, navigability and content. Two moderated regression analyses were conducted to investigate first the moderating effects of loyalty on the relationship between web quality and satisfaction and secondly the moderating effect of satisfaction the relationship between web quality and loyalty. Specifically the results show that usability, design, contacts, navigability and contents are the five items of e-quality that have the main positive influence on customer satisfaction, instead of the processing speed that has a negative impact; when we consider customer loyalty as a dependent variable; the main effects are

Testi riediti nel 1943. Si tratta di interventi molto importanti, che hanno gettato le basi per molte delle successive ricerche. Infatti, Cecchelli studiò con grande attenzione le opere cividalesi, cercando di fornire indicazioni sulla loro cronologia e sui significati di quelle espressioni artistiche. Molti dei risultati raggiunti in quegli studi si sono rivelati in seguito esatti e comunque utili ad ulteriori approfondimenti. Il presente contributo si propone di riassumere e commentare le parti di maggiore interesse di quei saggi, inserendoli nel dibattito critico d’inizio Novecento sull’arte altomedievale.

    On 6 May 1976 an Ms=6.5 earthquake struck the Friuli area (NE Italy), causing about 1,000 casualties, and widespread destruction. Such event is the largest so far recorded in Northern Italy. After 40 years, the memory of a devastating earthquake remains in the urbanization, and in the people that lived that dreadful experience. However, the memories tend to vanish with the quake survivors demise and the celebration of the anniversary become a good opportunity to refresh the earthquake history, and the awareness of living in a seismic prone area. As seismologists, we believe that the seismic risk reduction starts from the education of the next generation. For this reason, we decided to celebrate the 40 anniversary planning a special educational campaign, mainly devoted to the schools and the young people, but it will give us the opportunity to check and, if necessary to raise, the level of seismic awareness of the local communities. The activities started on May 2015, with labs and lessons held in some schools, and the creation of a blog (https://versoi40anni.wordpress.com) to collect news, photos, video and all the materials related to the campaign. From February to May 2016, one day per week, we will open our seismological lab to the school visits, so that students can meet the seismologists, and we will cooperate with local science museums to enlarge the training offers on the earthquake topics. By continuing the efforts of our previous educational projects, the students of a school located in Gemona del Friuli, one of the small town destroyed by the 1976 earthquake, will be deeply involved in experimental activities, like seismic noise measurements for microzonation studies, so to be an active part of the seismic mitigation process. This and some other activities developed for the celebration of the 40 anniversary of the Friuli earthquake will be illustrated in this presentation.

    Climate change impacts on water resources, particularly groundwater, is a highly debated topic worldwide, triggering international attention and interest from both researchers and policy makers due to its relevant link with European water policy directives (e.g. 2000/60/EC and 2007/118/EC) and related environmental objectives. The understanding of long-term impacts of climate variability and change is therefore a key challenge in order to address effective protection measures and to implement sustainable management of water resources. This paper presents the modeling approach adopted within the Life + project TRUST (Tool for Regional-scale assessment of groUndwater Storage improvement in adaptation to climaTe change) in order to provide climate change hazard scenarios for the shallow groundwater of high Veneto and Friuli Plain, Northern Italy. Given the aim to evaluate potential impacts on water quantity and quality (e.g. groundwater level variation, decrease of water availability for irrigation, variations of nitrate infiltration processes), the modeling approach integrated an ensemble of climate, hydrologic and hydrogeologic models running from the global to the regional scale. Global and regional climate models and downscaling techniques were used to make climate simulations for the reference period 1961-1990 and the projection period 2010-2100. The simulation of the recent climate was performed using observed radiative forcings, whereas the projections have been done prescribing the radiative forcings according to the IPCC A1B emission scenario. The climate simulations and the downscaling, then, provided the precipitation, temperatures and evapo-transpiration fields used for the impact analysis. Based on downscaled climate projections, 3 reference scenarios for the period 2071-2100 (i.e. the driest, the wettest and the mild year) were selected and used to run a regional geomorphoclimatic and hydrogeological model. The final output of the model ensemble produced

    The Geoscience Program at Liceo Magrini (Liceo Scientifico Statale "Luigi Magrini", Gemona del Friuli, Udine, Italy) involves teachers and research scientists at the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS) to implement education programs with the goal of addressing a critical approach to seismic hazard reduction. The Liceo Magrini is set in Gemona del Friuli (Udine, Italy), the town most affected by the Friuli earthquake in 1976. Due to this reason, the seismic hazard and earthquake mitigation are arguments very close to the school population. Being well known students learn more and enjoy classes more when visual and active learning are incorporated into the lecture, the Geoscience Program is divided into theoretical seminars, demonstrations and hands-on activities in the classroom, summer stages that the students perform at the OGS Seismological Department. In particular, this year, in the framework of the Italian National Initiative "Settimana del Pianeta Terra", the Liceo Magrini promoted a study of how the ground responds to an earthquake at different locations (seismic microzonation) within the area the Gemona del Friuli town. Supported by the OGS researchers, the Magrini students acquired, processed and interpreted seismological data to understand how the effects of an earthquake can be mitigated, starting from the soil response during an earthquake. Targeted analysis of specific physical characteristics of the soil foundation (resonance frequencies, damping or amplification of seismic waves, liquefaction of soils) identify areas of similar seismic behavior. Such bulk of information is fundamental to the planning phase of a new structure or the adaptation of an existing one. Under the guidance of an expert seismologist the students designed and conducted the experiment. They identified 15 target sites (main historical buildings,hospital, fire station, schools), spanning from rock to soft soils. They performed measurements and

    Full Text Available Il presente contributo si sofferma sulle condizioni dell’insegnamento dell’italiano alle elementari di una scuola tedesca di Milano, l’Istituto Giulia, a cavallo degli anni Trenta del Novecento. La presenza di un’elevata ed eccezionale percentuale di italofoni accanto ai madrelingua tedeschi creò classi linguisticamente non omogenee, un problema cui si fece fronte con aggiustamenti di orario, reclutamento di maestre prima bilingui poi italiane, e l’elaborazione di un metodo innovativo da parte di Sr. Maria Hildegara Heinz, maestra tedesca in possesso di diploma magistrale sia tedesco sia italiano. Partendo da un approccio positivo al bilinguismo, visto come un fattore di agevolazione dell’apprendimento e non come ostacolo, Sr. Hildegara elaborò per l’apprendimento della lettura e della scrittura un metodo contrastivo e realizzò un’unificazione della didattica che riguardava fonetica, morfologia, lessico e contenuti culturali. Descritto in una relazione che Sr. Hildegara presentò a un convegno nel 1929, il metodo viene qui contestualizzato, confrontato con le scelte didattiche della maestra dell’altra scuola tedesca a Milano, e proposto in traduzione. «Building bridges between languages».  Italian L2 at the “Scuola Germanica Istituto Giulia” in Milan (1925-1935 This paper focuses on the teaching of Italian in the primary classes of a German school in Milan, the Giulia Institute, in the 1930s.

    Throughout the World, men have built terraced landscapes to gain ground suitable for cultivation in steep terrain. Beyond the historical and cultural importance of terraced slopes, terraces have played an important role for soil conservation and water management. In many areas, their abandonment has led to more frequent and/or abundant geo-hydrological hazards. We analyse two terraced areas in northern Italy, including (i) the Valstagna prealpine terraces (Veneto) where the Republic of Venice initiated the cultivation of tobacco in 1600, and (ii) the coastal terraces of Santa Giulia di Centaura (Liguria) where terraces host vineyards and olive groves since 2000 years. Using a combination of direct and indirect mapping methods and tools, including LiDAR topographic surveys, the visual interpretation of aerial photographs and the analysis of historical maps, we performed a systematic mapping of the terraces. Using the available maps, we determined statistics for the width, height and extent of stonewalls and we evaluated the historical evolution of the terraces for the past 50 years, considering changes in land use, the expansion of forest, and the changes in the precipitation regime. Finally, through a preliminary cost-benefit analysis, we propose good practices to help the recovery of the terraces in the two study areas.

    Climate change impacts on water resources, particularly groundwater, is a highly debated topic worldwide, triggering international attention and interest from both researchers and policy makers due to its relevant link with European water policy directives (e.g. 2000/60/EC and 2007/118/EC) and related environmental objectives. The understanding of long-term impacts of climate variability and change is therefore a key challenge in order to address effective protection measures and to implement sustainable management of water resources. This paper presents the modeling approach adopted within the Life+ project TRUST (Tool for Regional-scale assessment of groUndwater Storage improvement in adaptation to climaTe change) in order to provide climate change hazard scenarios for the shallow groundwater of high Veneto and Friuli Plain, Northern Italy. Given the aim to evaluate potential impacts on water quantity and quality (e.g. groundwater level variation, decrease of water availability for irrigation, variations of nitrate infiltration processes), the modeling approach integrated an ensemble of climate, hydrologic and hydrogeologic models running from the global to the regional scale. Global and regional climate models and downscaling techniques were used to make climate simulations for the reference period 1961-1990 and the projection period 2010-2100. The simulation of the recent climate was performed using observed radiative forcings, whereas the projections have been done prescribing the radiative forcings according to the IPCC A1B emission scenario. The climate simulations and the downscaling, then, provided the precipitation, temperatures and evapo-transpiration fields used for the impact analysis. Based on downscaled climate projections, 3 reference scenarios for the period 2071-2100 (i.e. the driest, the wettest and the mild year) were selected and used to run a regional geomorphoclimatic and hydrogeological model. The final output of the model ensemble produced

    Climate change impact assessment on water resources has received high international attention over the last two decades, due to the observed global warming and its consequences at the global to local scale. In particular, climate-related risks for groundwater and related ecosystems pose a great concern to scientists and water authorities involved in the protection of these valuable resources. The close link of global warming with water cycle alterations encourages research to deepen current knowledge on relationships between climate trends and status of water systems, and to develop predictive tools for their sustainable management, copying with key principles of EU water policy. Within the European project Life+ TRUST (Tool for Regional-scale assessment of groundwater Storage improvement in adaptation to climaTe change), a Regional Risk Assessment (RRA) methodology was developed in order to identify impacts from climate change on groundwater and associated ecosystems (e.g. surface waters, agricultural areas, natural environments) and to rank areas and receptors at risk in the high and middle Veneto and Friuli Plain (Italy). Based on an integrated analysis of impacts, vulnerability and risks linked to climate change at the regional scale, a RRA framework complying with the Sources-Pathway-Receptor-Consequence (SPRC) approach was defined. Relevant impacts on groundwater and surface waters (i.e. groundwater level variations, changes in nitrate infiltration processes, changes in water availability for irrigation) were selected and analyzed through hazard scenario, exposure, susceptibility and risk assessment. The RRA methodology used hazard scenarios constructed through global and high resolution model simulations for the 2071-2100 period, according to IPCC A1B emission scenario in order to produce useful indications for future risk prioritization and to support the addressing of adaptation measures, primarily Managed Artificial Recharge (MAR) techniques.

    Climate change will have different impacts on water resources and water-dependent services worldwide. In particular, climate-related risks for groundwater and related ecosystems pose great concern to scientists and water authorities involved in the protection of these valuable resources. Research is needed to better understand how climate change will impact groundwater resources in specific regions and places and to develop predictive tools for their sustainable management, copying with the envisaged effects of global climate change and the key principles of EU water policy.

    The role of local stone building material in cultural and technological heritage is based on the definition of the area of use, as related to ancient transportation networks, allowing the movement of heavy blocks from the quarries to the building sites. It is the case of the result of several surveys carried out for the detection of the architectural elements, dating from Middle Age to 20th century, made of a yellowish calcareous-dolomitic sandstone, which have been found, hidden among renovated buildings and new construction, in Friuli region (NE Italy). on the way between the quarrying piedmont western area and the towns of Udine and Spilimbergo. Starting from the definition of the quarrying area, the contribution give notice of such architectural elements (frames, columns, …), both in vernacular architecture and in relevant buildings, putting in evidence the period of their realisation and their technological features.

Conscientious application of the standard precautions is the main method used to avoid needle stick injuries, contamination of skin and mucous membranes, cuts with sharp tools, and inadequate disposal and recapping of needles. The aim of this work was to investigate in Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region in north-east Italy, the enhancement carried out to prevent situations of biologic risk for health care workers, and to verify the related laboratory analyses. Methods: Biological accidents occurring during the years 2012–2013 in the departments of oncology and pediatric-obstetric surgery, and in the intensive care unit at Burlo Garofolo Children's Hospital in Trieste (a large town in Friuli Venezia Giulia were reviewed, and a new panel of tests was introduced for patients and health care workers, to also detect human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, hepatitis C virus (HCV, hepatitis B virus (HBV, and aspartate transaminase and immunoglobulin G. All tests were submitted for external quality assessment. Results: In total, 230 nosocomial events were reported by health care workers in the above-mentioned hospital departments in 2012–2013. There were 158 accidents in 2012, including 55 accidental needle stick injuries (34.81%, 59 blood splashes (37.34%, and 44 cuts with infected instruments (27.84%. The risk of sustaining a cut was related to movement error during surgery when the appropriate procedure was not followed or when devices were being assembled and passed between doctors and nurses. Most accidents happened among physicians compared to nurses; the high percentage of needle stick injuries (34

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The past ten years have witnessed a rising trend in the prevalence and duration of breastfeeding in Italy, but breastfeeding rates increase in an unequal way; they are higher in the North of Italy than in the South. The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences, expectations and beliefs of a sample of mothers, and to identify differences, if any, between the North and the South of Italy. Methods The study was conducted in two regions of Italy, Friuli Venezia Giulia in the Northeast and Basilicata in the South. Two hundred and seventy-nine mothers of infants and children 6 to 23 months of age were interviewed using an 85-item questionnaire including closed and open questions on infant feeding experiences and beliefs, sources of information and support, reasons for intended and actual choices and practices, and some demographic and social variables. Face-to-face interviews were conducted between May 2001 and September 2002. Quantitative and qualitative methods were used for data analysis. Results The distribution of the mothers by age, education, employment and parity did not differ from that of the general population of the two regions. The reported rates of initiation and duration of breastfeeding were also similar: 95% started breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding was 32% at three and 9% at six months, with 64% and 35% of any breastfeeding, respectively. Some differences were reported in the rates of full breastfeeding, reflecting different ages of introduction of non-nutritive fluids. These, as well as nutritive fluids – including infant formula – and complementary foods, were introduced far too early. Advice on infant feeding was generally provided by health professionals and often was not based on up-to-date recommendations. Mothers were generally aware of the advantages of breastfeeding, but at the same time reported problems that they were not able to solve alone or through social and health system

  3. On the evening onset of deep moist convection in complex orography

    The evening onset of deep moist convection (hereafter DMC) in areas characterized by complex orography is quite well documented, being evidenced both by human observations and by automatic sensors (e.g., peaks of lightning frequency around 20 local time) . In these areas, evening events play a relevant role in the climate of DMC because, in some months, they represent the main DMC activity peak, even larger than the afternoon peak. Moreover, they often affect human activities which are erroneously planned during evening time, in a moment of the day when DMC is considered unfavored. In this work, the onset of evening DMC in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) is analyzed by way of cloud-to-ground (hereafter CG) lightning frequency and through rain gauge measurements. It is evidenced that evening DMC occurrence is favored in relatively narrow alpine valleys and in steep orographyc relieves bordered by sea. The hypothesis advanced to explain these events is the interplay between day-time and night-time breezes which, during the switch between their modes, produce a local convergence, then the needed initial lifting to parcels for the onset of DMC. This hypothesis is tested by way of observations and numerical models. the reason why this modes switch is only effective in evening and in complex orography is that morning temperatures are too low to assure buoyancy and because orography can supply more potential energy (related to the slanted borders) to enhance an otherwise too week convergence.

    Air quality is the result of complex phenomena, among which the major role is played by human emissions of pollutants. Atmospheric processes act as determinants, e.g., modulating, dumping or amplifying the effects of emissions as an orchestra's director does with musical instruments. In this work, a series of small-scale and meso-scale meteorological determinants of air-quality are presented as they are observed in an area characterized by complex orography (Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the north-eastern side of Italy). In particular, attention is devoted to: i) meso-scale flows favouring the persistence of high concentrations of particulate matter; ii) meso-scale periodic flows (breezes) favouring high values of particulate matter; iii) local-scale thermodynamic behaviour favouring high atmospheric values of nitrogen oxides. The effects of these different classes of determinants are shown through comparisons between anthropic emissions (mainly traffic) and ground-based measurements. The relevance of complex orography (relatively steep relieves near to the sea) is shown for the meso-scale flows and, in particular, for local-scale periodic flows, which favour the increase of high pollutants concentrations mainly in summer, when the breezes regime is particularly relevant. Part of these results have been achieved through the ETS - Alpine Space EU project iMONITRAF!

    In this work, eight years of cloud-to-ground lightning data are used as a proxy observable to describe the hourly frequency of deep moist convection occurrence over an area characterized by complex geography in the southern side of the Alps (Friuli Venezia Giulia). The study area is divided in eight sub-zones, defined according to the climatic differences of the southern side of the Alps, in particular those related to the precipitation regime. In the eight sub-zones, the hourly frequency of cloud-to-ground lightning shows two different behaviours: bimodal and single-mode. Single-mode hourly frequencies, in turn, can be divided into two more classes: afternoon maximum and evening maximum. A conceptual model for the explanation of the observed features is proposed. This conceptual model takes into account the atmospheric instability, which has a maximum during afternoon, and the convection forcing represented by the switch in the breezes regime, which is stronger in the late morning and evening. The proposed conceptual model is coherent with the complementary meteorological parameters taken into account (hourly rain, temperature and wind distribution and speed) and it is capable to describe, at least qualitatively, the observed behaviours in cloud-to-ground lightning hourly distribution.

    The increase of sea temperature and the changes in marine currents are generating impacts on coastal waters such as changes in water biogeochemical and physical parameters (e.g. primary production, pH, salinity) leading to progressive degradation of the marine environment. With the main aim of analysing the potential impacts of climate change on coastal water quality, a Regional Risk Assessment (RRA) methodology was developed and applied to coastal marine waters of the North Adriatic (i.e. coastal water bodies of the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions, Italy). RRA integrates the outputs of regional models providing information on macronutrients (i.e. dissolved inorganic nitrogen e reactive phosphorus), dissolved oxygen, pH, salinity and temperature, etc., under future climate change scenarios with site-specific environmental and socio-economic indicators (e.g. biotic index, presence and extension of seagrasses, presence of aquaculture). The presented approach uses Geographic Information Systems to manage, analyse, and visualize data and employs Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis for the integration of stakeholders preferences and experts judgments into the evaluation process. RRA outputs are hazard, exposure, vulnerability, risk and damage maps useful for the identification and prioritization of hot-spot areas and vulnerable targets in the considered region. Therefore, the main aim of this contribution is to apply the RRA methodology to integrate, visualize, and rank according to spatial distribution, physical and chemical data concerning the coastal waters of the North Adriatic Sea in order to predict possible changes of the actual water quality.

    The relationship between coeliac disease and asthma has been scarcely investigated. Infant antibiotic exposure has been linked to both diseases. We evaluated the association between childhood coeliac disease and asthma and the role of antibiotics in the first year of life. We followed a cohort of children born in 1995-2011 in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region (Italy). Prescriptions for antibiotics in the first year of life and subsequent treated asthma were retrieved from drug prescription records; coeliac disease incident cases were identified from pathology reports, hospital discharges and exemption from prescription charges for clinical tests. We estimated incidence rate ratios (IRRs) using multivariate Poisson regression models. Among the 143,144 children, we identified 717 coeliac children and 34,969 asthmatics. Children with asthma were at increased risk of coeliac disease (IRR 1.46, 95% CI 1.25-1.67). Restricting the analysis to asthma that occurred before the diagnosis of coeliac disease, the excess risk disappeared, except for coeliac disease diagnosed after 5 years of age (IRR 1.37, 95% CI 1.09-1.71). Antibiotics were not a confounding factor in these associations. Childhood treated asthma and coeliac disease are significantly associated. This association is not confounded by antibiotic exposure in the first year of life and may be explained by other shared risk factors. Copyright ©ERS 2015.

    Full Text Available The importance of emission control has increased sharply due to the increased need of energy from combustion. However, biomass utilization in energy production is not free from problems because of physical and chemical characteristics which are substantially different from conventional energy sources. In this situation, the quantity and quality of emissions as well as used renewable sources as wood or corn grain are often unknown. To assess this problem the paper addresses the objectives to quantify the amount of greenhouse gases during the combustion of corn as compared to the emissions in fossil combustion (natural gas, LPG and diesel boiler. The test was carried out in Friuli Venezia Giulia in 2006-2008 to determine the air pollution (CO, NO, NO2, NOx, SO2 and CO2 from fuel combustion in family boilers with a power between 20-30 kWt. The flue gas emission was measured with a professional semi-continuous multi-gas analyzer, (Vario plus industrial, MRU air Neckarsulm-Obereisesheim. Data showed a lower emission of fossil fuel compared to corn in family boilers in reference to pollutants in the flue gas (NOx, SO2 and CO. In a particular way the biomass combustion makes a higher concentration of carbon monoxide (for an incomplete combustion because there is not a good mixing between fuel and air and nitrogen oxides (in relation at a higher content of nitrogen in herbaceous biomass in comparison to another fuel.

    We identified patients whose records in the Sistema Informativo Sanitario Regionale database in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia showed a code of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) and perforation according to codes of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-9th revision. The validity of site- and lesion-specific codes (531 to 534) and nonspecific codes (5780, 5781, and 5789) was ascertained through manual review of hospital clinical records. The initial group was made of 1779 potential cases of UGIB identified with one of these codes recorded. First, the positive predictive values (PPV) were calculated in a random sample. As a result of the observed high PPV of 531 and 532 codes, additional hospital charts were solely requested for all remaining potential cases with 533, 534, and 578 ICD-9 codes. The overall PPV reached a high of 97% for 531 and 532 site-specific codes, 84% for 534 site-specific codes, and 80% for 533 lesion-specific codes, and a low of 59% for nonspecific codes. These data suggest a considerable research potential for this new computerized health care database in Southern Europe.

    Depending on their amplitude and frequency, vibrations may facilitate bleeding and worsen the prognosis of patients with pelvic fractures transported by helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS). We measured the range of frequencies and amplitudes of forced vibrations produced by the helicopter used by the HEMS of the Italian Friuli Venezia Giulia region on the pelvis of transported persons. We performed 3 flight tests with 3 different volunteers (mass 70, 80, and 90 kg, respectively) loaded on the helicopter's stretcher and recorded the amplitudes and frequencies of vibrations through a triaxis sensor placed on the HEMS stretcher in the pelvis area. The flight profile planned was identical for each of the 3 iterations. Over the whole flight, the frequencies of vibration were between 26.4 and 53.5 Hz, and the greastest amplitude was 0.035 mm. The vibrations recorded in the helicopter may facilitate bleeding in unstable fractures. In the management of patients with pelvic fractures, HEMS crews should provide prehospital care that includes the use of specific splinting devices in addition to the spinal board, which allows an early immobilization of fractures and the limitation of pelvic motion.

    Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with an elevated risk of cancer. The aim of this study was to assess cancer risk and survival in individuals with type 2 DM (T2DM) in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy. A retrospective population-based cohort study of 32,247 T2DM patients aged 40-84 years was conducted through a record linkage of local healthcare databases and cancer registry for the period 2002-2009. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) with 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs) and 5-year survival probabilities after T2DM and cancer diagnosis were computed. The SIRs for all cancers (n=2069) was 1.28 (95%CI: 1.23-1.34). The highest SIRs were observed for cancers of the liver, female genital organs, small intestine, and pancreas. After 3 years from T2DM diagnosis, a reduced risk of prostate cancer (SIR=0.73, 95%CI: 0.54-0.96) was found in men aged 65-74 years, and a higher risk for breast cancer (SIR=1.24, 95%CI: 1.00-1.52) was found among T2DM female patients. The overall 5-year survival after T2DM was 88.7%. Furthermore, T2DM appeared to have a negative effect on survival of women with breast cancer. This population-based study confirmed that T2DM patients are at increased risk of several cancers, and of premature death in women with breast cancer.

    Full Text Available The Consorzi Vicinali are common property organisations (CPOs located in a mountain area of Friuli Venezia Giulia region, in North East Italy. These CPOs have a long history of mutual assistance and collective use and management of local resources, thus contributing to a balanced development of the local community and territory. The research aimed at investigating whether these historical CPOs still have a relevant role to play in the development of local rural areas, and how they deal with the present needs and opportunities of these areas. Specifically, the robustness and viability of these organisations were analysed. The survey revealed some strengths and weaknesses of the Consorzi Vicinali. According to Ostrom’s design principles, the robustness is quite high. Nevertheless, this ability to maintain some desired characteristics despite internal and external fluctuations does not always match with a high viability, in terms of natural resource management, internal participation, creation of job opportunities especially for young people, and capacity to attract financial support. In fact, some Consorzi still act effectively in terms of the collective stewardship of rural resources. Whereas, others have the potential to adapt to new challenges and emerging needs, due to the deep rootedness and the sense of belonging of the local community to its territory. These are the strengths of all the Consorzi. The robustness and viability analyses used in a complementary way have been effective here in giving a more comprehensive description of CPOs and their (potential role in rural development.

    Volunteers have been trained to perform first-level inspections of hydraulic structures within campaigns promoted by civil protection of Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy). Two inspection forms and a learning session were prepared to standardize data collection on the functional status of bridges and check dams. In all, 11 technicians and 25 volunteers inspected a maximum of six structures in Pontebba, a mountain community within the Fella Basin. Volunteers included civil-protection volunteers, geosciences and social sciences students. Some participants carried out the inspection without attending the learning session. Thus, we used the mode of technicians in the learning group to distinguish accuracy levels between volunteers and technicians. Data quality was assessed by their accuracy, precision and completeness. We assigned ordinal scores to the rating scales in order to get an indication of the structure status. We also considered performance and feedback of participants to identify corrective actions in survey procedures. Results showed that volunteers could perform comparably to technicians, but only with a given range in precision. However, a completeness ratio (question/parameter) was still needed any time volunteers used unspecified options. Then, volunteers' ratings could be considered as preliminary assessments without replacing other procedures. Future research should consider advantages of mobile applications for data-collection methods.

    To compare 2 approaches in the management of neonates at risk for group B Streptococcus early-onset sepsis: laboratory tests plus standardized physical examination and standardized physical examination alone. Prospective, sequential study over 2 consecutive 12-month periods, carried out in the maternity hospitals of the region Friuli-Venezia Giulia (north-eastern Italy). All term infants were included (7628 in the first period, 7611 in the second). In the first period, complete blood count and blood culture were required for all infants at risk, followed by a 48-hour period of observation with a standardized physical examination. In the second period, only standardized physical examination was performed. Study outcomes were: (1) number of neonates treated with antibiotics; and (2) time between onset of signs of possible sepsis and beginning of treatment. There was no difference between the 2 periods in the rate of maternal colonization (19.7% vs 19.8%, P = .8), or in other risk factors. The interval between onset of signs of sepsis and starting of antibiotics was not different in the 2 periods. Significantly fewer infants were treated with antibiotics in the second period (0.5% vs 1.2%, P physical examination seem to offer no advantage over standardized physical examination alone; the latter was associated with fewer antibiotic treatments. Our results are in agreement with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's 2010 recommendations. Copyright © 2013 Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved.

    Background Although dyslexia is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders affecting children, prevalence is uncertain and available data are scanty and dated. The objective of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of dyslexia in an unselected school population using clearly defined and rigorous diagnostic criteria and methods. Methods Cross sectional study. We selected a random cluster sample of 94 fourth grade elementary school classes of Friuli Venezia Giulia, a Region of North Eastern Italy. We carried out three consecutive levels of screening: the first two at school and the last at the Neuropsychiatry Unit of a third level Mother and Child Hospital. The main outcome measure was the prevalence of dyslexia, defined as the number of children positive to the third level of screening divided by the total number of children enrolled. Results We recruited 1774 children aged 8–10 years, of which 1528 received parents’ consent to participate. After applying exclusion criteria, 1357 pupils constituted the final working sample. The prevalence of dyslexia in the enrolled population ranged from 3.1% (95% CI 2.2–4.1%) to 3.2% (95% CI 2.4–4.3%) depending on different criteria adopted. In two out of three children with dyslexia the disorder had not been previously diagnosed. Conclusions This study shows that dyslexia is largely underestimated in Italy and underlines the need for reliable information on prevalence, in order to better allocate resources both to Health Services and Schools.

    Under the ARCHITRAVE programme aimed at redesigning the regional health and social information system, the alpha version of a new web application was developed using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and other medical terminology systems as a basis for a flexible electronic standards-based bio-psycho-social record. The web application was developed in order to collect information according to a multiaxial assessment framework consistent with the model of functioning adopted by the ICF. The web application translates information collected in natural language into ICF and releases outputs at different stages of the assessment process useful in evaluating clinical and social outcomes, distinguishing between functioning and disability in the same functioning profile and planning reasonable adaptations to overcome disability. The alpha version works in Italian and was adapted to the Italian welfare system/services/policies, but an international version working in other languages/welfare systems can be designed. The first field trial is ongoing in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, implementing the regional Health and Social Action Plan 2010-2012.

    Currently, Wall Functions (WF) work well under specific conditions, mostly exhibit drawbacks specially in flows with separation beyond curvatures. In this work, we propose a more general WF which works well in attached and detached flows, in presence and absence of Immersed Boundaries (IB). First we modified an equilibrium stress WF for boundary-fitted geometry making dynamic the computation of the k (von Karman constant) of the log-law; the model was first applied to a periodic open channel flow, and then to the flow over a 2D single hill using uniform coarse grids; the model captured separation with reasonable accuracy. Thereafter IB Method by Roman et al. was improved to avoid momentum loss at the interface between the fluid-solid regions. This required calibration of interfacial eddy viscosity; also a random stochastic forcing was used in wall-normal direction to increase Reynolds stresses and improve mean velocity profile. Finally, to reproduce flow separation, a simplified boundary layer equation was applied to construct velocity at near wall computational nodes. The new scheme was tested on the 2D single hill and periodic hills applying Cartesian and curvilinear grids; good agreement with references was obtained with reduction in cost and complexity.

    Full Text Available Grapevine downy mildew, caused by Plasmopara viticola, is probably the most damaging fungal disease of grapevine world-wide. Among the fungicides recently developed for downy mildew control is the QoI class of fungicides, which inhibits mitochondrial respiration. Since 1999, selected P. viticola populations in northern Italy have been monitored for resistance to QoI fungicides. Detached leaf discs and whole potted plants were used under controlled conditions to test the sampled populations. QoI-resistant populations of P. viticola were found in all the vineyards sampled in 2001 and 2002 in Trentino Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia, where failure in QoI control was reported. Many of the populations had minimum inhibition concentration (MIC values 3– 30 times higher than those of sensitive reference populations. Populations of P. viticola sampled from vineyards in Piedmont, where no QoI fungicides had previously been used, showed MIC values equal to, or lower than those of the reference populations. Most of the P. viticola populations collected in Trentino Alto Adige in 2001 showed high virulence in leaf disc test and were not controlled by QoI fungicides, applied both at field and double field rates in the whole plant test. Most of these populations retained their virulence in the subsequent leaf disc test in water.

    Full Text Available Burkholderia cepacia is an opportunistic pathogen able to colonize the airways of Cystic Fibrosis (CF patients, frequently developing chronic infections. In 20% of cases these infections cause severe and poorly controlled pathological situations because of the intrinsic antibiotic resistance expressed by the microorganism. CF patients are often subjected to antibiotic therapy: this facilitates the acquisition of antibiotic resistance determinants by the infecting bacteria. Integrons are mobile genetic elements that are widespread in bacterial populations and favor the acquisition of gene cassettes coding for these determinants.The presence of class 1 integrons was investigated by PCR with primers specific for the 5’ and 3’ ends in Burkholderia isolates recovered from patients in treatment at the CF center of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The same integron, carrying an uncommon allelic form (Ib of the aacA4 gene in its cassette array and conferring resistance to some aminoglycosides, was found in two independent isolates (different RAPD profiles infecting two different patients. In both isolates the integron was carried by plasmids and was still present 3 and 6 years later the first finding. Despite the exchange of integrons between bacterial pathogens is fully described, these items were not frequently found in Burkholderia isolates. Although the clinical relevance of the integron we identified is low (a single gene cassette encoding a widespread resistance,we feel concerned that these genetic elements begin to circulate in this bacterial species, as this could make more and more troublesome the treatment of infections notoriously difficult to eradicate.

    Northern Friuli (in northeast Italy) and the Upper Soča Valley (in northwest Slovenia) are extremely seismically active. The earthquakes of 6 May and 15 September 1976, with an epicenter in the Venzone area, claimed 939 lives in Italy and 157,000 people were left homeless. The same two earthquakes affected northwest Slovenia, which was still part of communist Yugoslavia at the time; they did not claim any lives, but they damaged 12,000 buildings and 13,000 people were left homeless. The "Easter Earthquake" of 12 April 1998, with an epicenter in the Krn Mountains, damaged 4,000 structures in Slovenia, among which nearly 1,500 had to be completely rebuilt. Even though there was noticeably less damage than in the 1976 earthquakes, in some settlements more than 80% of the houses were damaged. The same area was hit by another earthquake on 12 July 2004, which damaged nearly 2,000 structures, including some that had already been repaired after the 1998 earthquake. More than three decades after the 1976 earthquakes, a qualitative study was carried out on public participation in rebuilding after these earthquakes and public influence on the success of rebuilding. The research is based on studies of cases of individual settlements in Italy and Slovenia, where in-depth interviews were conducted with relevant persons that had been directly involved in the post-earthquake rebuilding efforts. This article highlights six case studies ranked on Arnstein's ladder of citizen participation. Examples from Italy include Venzone, Portis, and Resia for the 1976 earthquakes, and examples from Slovenia include Breginj for the 1976 earthquakes, Drežni\\vske Ravne for the 1998 earthquake, and Čezsoča for the 1998 and 2004 earthquakes. Alongside various political, legislative, and administrative circumstances, a responsible citizenry was also an important factor. In the case of Venzone, the majority of the residents and stakeholders had a positive influence on the preservation of

    Full Text Available In order to interpret the links between Venice and Byzantium, it is firstly described how earliest houses in Venice were decorated by using sculptures coming from trading places. It is described the use of disassembled elements and the replacement of others, such as cornices, windows’ elements, coats of arms, among others. These were used firstly as a revival (Neo-Byzantine, 15th century, and later as reflection of the Venetian society «prudence», related to its behaviours and traditions. This prudence is mainly shown in the Renaissance. Besides this, other aspects such as the type of building and the façades, which are the main transformed surface, are analysed with the aim of researching periodical and characteristic dynamics, mainly in those façades showing stylistic renewal and new elements. Some external façades have maintained specific and easy observable characteristics, so they can be associated to a determined stylistic and morphological period. Other façades are stratified, as it is shown by the presence of elements (windows, cornices, … of different building phases. After tracing the main stratifying processes in about 40 study-cases, thanks to a macroscopic analysis, some ways of new composition elements and different stratified units are described. According to this, it is clear that the main principle is the searching for symmetry. Finally, some ways of intervention on the façades are described, highlighting some significant cases.[it] Nella prima parte dell’articolo viene descritto il modo di adornare le prime case veneziane con sculture importate dai luoghi del commercio, come ricostruzione del legame fra Venezia e Bisanzio.

    Full Text Available Il 20 luglio del 1964 la Pravda pubblica un duro attacco alla Biennale di Venezia - che sancisce, con il premio assegnato a Rauschenberg, la consacrazione del New Dada e della Pop Art - accusandola di “ciarlataneria”. Analogamente da parte della critica italiana emerge una diffusa tendenza a non ammettere la stessa liceità estetica del Realismo Socialista, recuperando i termini di una contrapposizione tra “arte” e “kitsch” il cui antecedente fondamentale può essere identificato nel celebre testo di Greenberg del 1939. Sempre nel 1964 la terza edizione di documenta a Kassel propone una lettura del contemporaneo che esclude programmaticamente il realismo, assumendo una visione idealista che rifiuta ogni possibile tangenza tra ricerche estetiche e dimensione politica. L’articolo si propone di indagare l’affermazione di un modello di lettura del Realismo Socialista che risente profondamente delle politiche culturali in atto negli anni della guerra fredda, i cui retaggi continueranno a perpetuarsi nel dibattito successivo sul realismo, trovando solo in anni recenti, con autori come Boris Groys, una forma di problematizzazione.

The southwestern edge of the OGS seismic network stands on the Po alluvial basin: earthquake localization and characterization in this area is affected by the presence of soft alluvial deposits. Following the ML=5.9 earthquake that struck the Emilia region around Ferrara in Northern Italy on May 20, 2012, a cooperation of Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, OGS, the Comune di Ferrara and the University of Ferrara lead to the reinstallation of a previously existing very broad band (VBB) borehole seismic station in Ferrara and to the deployment of a temporary seismographic network consisting of eight portable seismological stations, to record the local earthquakes that occurred during the seismic sequence. The aim of the OGS intervention was on one hand to extend its real time seismic monitoring capabilities toward South-West, including Ferrara and its surroundings, and on the other hand to evaluate seismic site responses in the area. We will introduce details of the Ferrara VBB borehole station and the OGS temporary seismographic network configuration and installation. We will then illustrate the location capability performances, and finally we will shortly describe seismic site characterization with surface/borehole comparisons in terms of seismic noise, site amplification and resonance frequencies.

    Full Text Available With respect to the epidemiology of leishmaniasis, it is crucial to take into account the ecoclimatic and environ- mental characteristics that influence the distribution patterns of the vector sand fly species. It is also important to consider the possible impact of on-going climate changes on the emergence of this disease. In order to map the potential distribu- tion of Phlebotomus perniciosus, the main vector species of canine leishmaniasis in north-eastern Italy, geographical information systems tools, ecological niche models (ENM and remotely sensed environmental data were applied for a retrospective analysis of an entomological survey conducted in north-eastern Italy over 12 years. Sand fly trapping was conducted from 2001 to 2012 in 175 sites in the provinces of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige. We developed a predictive model of potential distribution of P. perniciosus using the maximum entropy algorithm software, based on seasonal normalized difference vegetation index, day and night land surface temperature, the Corine land cover 2006, a digital elevation model (GTOPO30 and climate layers obtained from the WorldClim database. The MaxEnt pre- diction found the more suitable habitat for P. perniciosus to be hilly areas (100-300 m above the mean sea level charac- terised by temperate climate during the winter and summer seasons, high winter vegetation cover and moderate rainfall during the activity season of vector sand fly. ENM provided a greater understanding of the geographical distribution and ecological requirements of P. perniciosus in the study area, which can be applied for the development of future surveil- lance strategies.

    The Regional Environment Protection Agency of Friuli Venezia Giulia (A.R.P.A. F.V.G., Italy) has performed an analysis on existing software designed to calculate magnetic induction field generated by power lines. As far as the agency requirements are concerned the tested programs display some difficulties in the immediate processing of electrical and geometrical data supplied by plant owners, and in certain cases turn out to be inadequate in representing complex configurations of power lines. Furthermore, none of them is preset for cyclic calculus to determine the time evolution of induction in a certain exposure area. Finally, the output data are not immediately importable by ArcView, the G.I.S. used by A.R.P.A. F.V.G., and it is not always possible to implement the territory orography to determine the field at specified heights above the ground. P.h.i.d.e.l., an innovative software, tackles and works out al l the above mentioned problems. The power line wires interested in its implementation are represented by poly lines, and the field is analytically calculated, with no further approximation, not even when more power lines are concerned. Therefore, the obtained results, when compared with those of other programs, are the closest to experimental measurements. The output data can be employed both in G.I.S. and Excel environments, allowing the immediate overlaying of digital cartography and the determining of the 3 and 10 {mu}T bands, in compliance with the Italian Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 8 July 2003.

    We identify geo-morphometric features of active fault scarps in Italy through a semiautomatic processing using GIS. Medium to high resolution DEM was used to characterize the geometry, structural, and erosive elements of two seismogenic normal faults in Central and Southern Apennines. The Pettino fault in L'Aquila area was detected using a 1 m pixel DEM derived from airborne LiDAR survey (Friuli Venezia Giulia Civil Protection). For the Castrovillari fault in northern Calabria region was used a 4 m pixel DEM (Regional Cartography Office of Regione Calabria). Scarp segments are region of planar discontinuities identified by selected values of DEM-derived Terrain Ruggedness Index (TRI) and Vector Ruggedness Measure (VRM). These planar discontinuities corresponds to landscape features such as, river terraces, roads scarps, and other natural or human features. The discrimination between these features have been accomplished overlaying extracted features on aerial photograph, geological and geomorphologic maps and in situ survey. After that, we perform the quantitative and statistical analysis of these areas identified as "fault scarps". The identification of elements relative to the scarps (e.g. base, crest, slope) is then obtained to derive the estimate of parameters describing the fault: altitude, height of the scarp, length, slope and aspect, Terrain Ruggedness Index (TRI) and Vector Ruggedness Measure (VRM). The spatial distribution of the extracted values was obtained through their statistical analysis. We analyze scarp parameters variations along the whole scarp extent, such as strike value from aspect variations, slope and profile curvature differences as indicators of tectonic and/or erosion activity. The combined analysis of the DEM-derived parameters allows us to (a) define aspects of three-dimensional scarp geometry, (b) decipher its geomorphological significance, and (c) estimate the long-term slip rate.

    The Italian National Institute for Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics (Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale, OGS) is running the Antarctic Seismographic Argentinean Italian Network (ASAIN), made of 5 seismic stations located in the Scotia Sea region in Antarctica and in Argentina: data from these stations are transferred in real time to the OGS headquarters in Trieste (Italy) via satellite links. OGS is also running, in close cooperation with the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Civil Defense, the North East (NI) Italy seismic network, making use of the Antelope commercial software suite from BRTT as the main acquisition system. As a test to check the global capabilities of Antelope, we set up an instance of Antelope acquiring data in real time from both the regional ASAIN seismic network in Antarctica and a subset of the Global Seismic Network (GSN) funded by the Incorporated Research Institution for Seismology (IRIS). The facilities of the IRIS Data Management System, and specifically the IRIS Data Management Center, were used for real time access to waveform required in this study. Preliminary results over 1 month period indicated that about 82% of the earthquakes with magnitude M>5.0 listed in the PDE catalogue of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) were also correctly detected by Antelope, with an average location error of 0.05 degrees and average body wave magnitude Mb estimation error below 0.1. The average time difference between event origin time and the actual time of event determination by Antelope was of about 45': the comparison with 20', the IASPEI91 P-wave travel time for 180 degrees distance, and 25', the estimate of our test system data latency, indicate that Antelope is a serious candidate for regional and global early warning systems. Updated figures calculated over a longer period of time will be presented and discussed.

    Several epidemiological studies reported an association between antibiotic consumption in the first year of life and later asthma, but results are conflicting and affected by potential biases. We examined this controversial issue in a population-based birth cohort. Using administrative data, we identified 143,163 children born in 1995-2011 in Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Italy) (median follow-up 5.25 years, 927,350 person-years). Antibiotic prescriptions in the first year of life and subsequent treated asthma (defined as ≥2 anti-asthmatic drug prescriptions within a 12-month period) were retrieved from drug prescription records. We estimated incidence rate ratios (IRR) using Poisson regression models, adjusted for perinatal variables and for hospitalizations for infections in the first year of life. We identified 34,957 new-onset asthma cases. Antibiotic consumption in the first year of life increased the risk of new-onset asthma [IRR 1.51, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.48-1.54] with a dose-response relationship (p-trend asthma identified at 13-35 months of life (IRR 2.07, 95% CI 2.00-2.14), but remained statistically significant for asthma identified at 36-71 months (IRR 1.17, 95% CI 1.14-1.21) and at ≥72 months (IRR 1.15, 95% CI 1.08-1.22). Antibiotics increased the risk of current asthma at ≥6 years (IRR 1.35, 95% CI 1.30-1.41) and at ≥13 years of age (IRR 1.19, 95% CI 1.08-1.33). Antibiotic exposure in infancy is associated with an increased risk of asthma up to adolescence. The association detected at older ages is not explained by reverse causation; however, confounding by respiratory infections not leading to hospital admission cannot be excluded.

    Background. Benzodiazepines are among the most commonly prescribed drugs in Italy and they are often used inappropriately according to guidelines for their rational use.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and pattern of use of benzodiazepine amongst the general population aged 65-84 years in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region, in North-East Italy.

    Methods. A total of 40 general practitioners participated in the study. Two data sources were used in the research. The first was the Health Search Database, the second was a short questionnaire administered by the general practitioners to the 65 to 84 year old patients attending their surgeries for any reason during the study period. Data on the use of benzodiazepines between 1st February and 31st July 2001 were extracted from both the Health Search Database using drug prescriptions and the questionnaires.

    Results. Of the 10,468 patients aged 65-84 years with complete demographical data in the general practitioners’ patient lists, 2,369 subjects used benzodiazepines, hypnotics and over the counter drugs. Overall prevalence of benzodiazepine use was 21.5% (95% confidence interval: 19.8-23.1%. Of the benzodiazepine users, 66.9% consumed a short-intermediate half-life and 33.1% a long half-life benzodiazepine. Most patients took benzodiazepines at night (68.2%, less frequently in the daytime and at night (23.7%, or in the daytime only (8.1%. Most users (89.2% said they had been taking benzodiazepine for years.

    Conclusions. Benzodiazepine use was associated with patient characteristics, such as being female, using analgesics or antidepressants and the presence of a chronic disease especially cancer or chronic heart failure.

    Full Text Available Zootechnical farms enhance the preservation and valorization of the environmental value of the surroundings in marginal areas, such as the mountains of Friuli Venezia Giulia. An important tool for relaunching mountain animal husbandry can be the promotion of an appropriate policy to maintain and develop local food chains, supporting typical products, tightly related to the peculiarity of the agro-ecosystem. The aim of the chain Carne della Montagna Friulana-Carne di Qualità is to create a cooperation among primary producers, transformation companies, sellers and research institutes, in order to develop innovative pathways throughout the production of meat in Carnia (UD. The project was designed in 2007/08 but it was operative from 2010, with a first batch of animals. The stakeholders subscribed a chain agreement, adopting production guidelines and a commercial trademark. Since the meat is not yet ready, the present paper is, in part, an analysis of the preliminary modification of the operative context and, in part, a previsional examination of the possible effect of the activation of this production chain on the area. The results investigated economic, social, landscape, technical and technological (related to food safety elements. It can be observed, by an introductive evaluation, that this productive circuit may valorize the resources of this mountain area and can enhance zootechnics in mountain areas. The guidelines allow a vertical integration throughout the production path, coordinating all the operators. This type of production can be considered a niche product, related to the territory, with the maximum guarantee for the consumers. The environmental worthiness is the recovering and the improving of these marginal, agricultural areas. Actually, an overall evaluation can be done only from the summer of 2011, when data such as the organoleptic and qualitative characteristics, selling prices, level of appreciation by the customers and

    The study of geographically and/or linguistically isolated populations could represent a potential area of interaction between population and forensic genetics. These investigations may be useful to evaluate the suitability of loci which have been selected using forensic criteria for bio-anthropological studies. At the same time, they give us an opportunity to evaluate the efficiency of forensic tools for parentage testing in groups with peculiar allele frequency profiles. Within the frame of a long-term project concerning Italian linguistic isolates, we studied 15 microsatellite loci (Identifiler kit) comprising the CODIS panel in 11 populations from the north-eastern Italian Alps (Veneto, Trentino and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions). All our analyses of inter-population differentiation highlight the genetic distinctiveness of most Alpine populations comparing them either to each other or with large and non-isolated Italian populations. Interestingly, we brought to light some aspects of population genetic structure which cannot be detected using unilinear polymorphisms. In fact, the analysis of genotypic disequilibrium between loci detected signals of population substructure when all the individuals of Alpine populations are pooled in a single group. Furthermore, despite the relatively low number of loci analyzed, genetic differentiation among Alpine populations was detected at individual level using a Bayesian method to cluster multilocus genotypes. Among the various populations studied, the four linguistic minorities (Fassa Valley, Luserna, Sappada and Sauris) showed the most pronounced diversity and signatures of a peculiar genetic ancestry. Finally, we show that database replacement may affect estimates of probability of paternity even when the local database is replaced by another based on populations which share a common genetic background but which differ in their demographic history. These findings point to the importance of considering the demographic and

    Every part of the world is characterized by his own climatological peculiarities, and sometimes some restricted areas can be influenced by local, singular, characteristical metereological phenomena. Trieste, capital of the region Friuli Venezia Giulia, and the Karst ( northeastern Italy) are included in this category. Since the old age it has been narrated the "raids" caused by the Bora, strong dry and cold north eastern wind that, with one of his most northern branch, which born in the karstic inland near Postumia (Slovenia), affects the Karst plateau and the Gulf of Trieste. In literature we can find how on September 5th, 394 a.C. the "miraculous wind" Bora has been decisive for the defeat of Arbogaste (West Roman Empire) in the Vipavska valley; he was with his army against the wind in the battle whereas the troops of the Catholic Emperor Teodosio (East Roman Empire) has been able to through their darts further thank to the wind. The fairy tales about "Bora" and "Borino" are part of the local literature since many centuries, whereas in the XX Century we can find images, postcards and books concerning the tempestuous wind of Trieste. When television born, developed a new way to communicate the deeds of Bora thanks to some extreme events occurred among 30s and 50s which contributes to increase his mith. The goal of this work is to retrace the history of Bora in the words of the common people rather than the science in order to understand how his legend has grown during the ages. Now, in the age of internet, a new way of telling the Bora adventures is born.

    With respect to the epidemiology of leishmaniasis, it is crucial to take into account the ecoclimatic and environmental characteristics that influence the distribution patterns of the vector sand fly species. It is also important to consider the possible impact of on-going climate changes on the emergence of this disease. In order to map the potential distribution of Phlebotomus perniciosus, the main vector species of canine leishmaniasis in north-eastern Italy, geographical information systems tools, ecological niche models (ENM) and remotely sensed environmental data were applied for a retrospective analysis of an entomological survey conducted in north-eastern Italy over 12 years. Sand fly trapping was conducted from 2001 to 2012 in 175 sites in the provinces of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige. We developed a predictive model of potential distribution of P. perniciosus using the maximum entropy algorithm software, based on seasonal normalized difference vegetation index, day and night land surface temperature, the Corine land cover 2006, a digital elevation model (GTOPO30) and climate layers obtained from the WorldClim database. The MaxEnt prediction found the more suitable habitat for P. perniciosus to be hilly areas (100-300 m above the mean sea level) characterised by temperate climate during the winter and summer seasons, high winter vegetation cover and moderate rainfall during the activity season of vector sand fly. ENM provided a greater understanding of the geographical distribution and ecological requirements of P. perniciosus in the study area, which can be applied for the development of future surveillance strategies.

The main object of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of polypharmacy and the appropriateness of drugs prescriptions in the regional health system (RHS of Friuli Venezia-Giulia Region, Italy. Design and methods. We carried out a point prevalence study in May 2014; 1582 patients ≥65 years were included from: 14 acute hospitals, 46 Long Term Care Facilities (LTCFs and 42 general practitioners’ (GPs clinics. Data analysis included the evaluation of potentially inappropriate prescriptions (PIPs taking Beers criteria as a reference. Results. Patients in therapy with 10 drugs or more were 13.5%: 15.2% in hospitals, 9.7% in GPs’ clinics and 15.6% in LTCFs. According to Beers criteria we identified 1152 PIPs that involved globally almost half of patients (46.0%: 41.9% in hospitals, 59.6% in LTCFs and 37.0% in GP’s clinics. The 53.9% of patients received at least one mainly kidney excreted drug; for these patients the evaluation of serum creatinine was overall present in the 87.7% (747/852: 96.4% in hospital ones, 87.5% in GPs’ clinics and 77.8% in LTCFs. LTCFs residents were significantly (P<0.05 more exposed to PIPs and less monitored for the renal function. Conclusions. A reliable estimation of the phenomenon in all the main healthcare settings is a necessary prerequisite to set tailored policies for facing polypharmacy within a RHS; the results showed the necessity to put a special attention on LTCFs.

    The growing concern about the possible effects of climate change on flood frequency regime is leading Authorities to review previously proposed procedures for design-flood estimation, such as national regionalization approaches. Our study focuses on the Triveneto region, a broad geographical area in North-eastern Italy consisting of the administrative regions of Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. A reference procedure for design flood estimation in Triveneto is available from the Italian NCR research project "VA.PI.", which developed a regional model using annual maximum series (AMS) of peak discharges that were collected up to the 80s by the former Italian Hydrometeorological Service. We consider a very detailed AMS database that we recently compiled for ~80 catchments located in Triveneto. Our dataset includes the historical data mentioned above, together with more recent data obtained from Regional Services and annual maximum peak streamflows extracted from inflow series to artificial reservoirs and provided by dam managers. All ~80 study catchments are characterized in terms of several geomorphologic and climatic descriptors. The main objectives of our study are: (1) to check whether climatic and scale controls on flood frequency regime in Triveneto are similar to the controls that were recently found in Europe; (2) to verify the possible presence of trends as well as abrupt changes in the intensity and frequency of flood extremes by looking at changes in time of regional L-moments of annual maximum floods; (3) to assess the reliability and representativeness of the reference procedure for design flood estimation relative to flood data that were not included in the VA.PI. dataset (i.e. more recent data collected after the 80s and historical data provided by dam managers); (4) to develop an updated reference procedure for design flood estimation in Triveneto by using a focused-pooling approach (i.e. Region of Influence, RoI).

    The Centro di Ricerche Sismologiche (CRS, Seismological Research Centre) of the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS, Italian National Institute for Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics) in Udine (Italy) after the strong earthquake of magnitude M=6.4 occurred in 1976 in the Italian Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, started to operate the North-eastern Italy Seismic Network: it currently consists of 17 very sensitive broad band and 18 simpler short period seismic stations, all telemetered to and acquired in real time at the OGS-CRS data centre in Udine. Real time data exchange agreements in place with other Italian, Slovenian, Austrian and Swiss seismological institutes lead to a total number of about 100 seismic stations acquired in real time, which makes the OGS the reference institute for seismic monitoring of North-eastern Italy. The south-western edge of the OGS seismic network (Fig. 1) stands on the Po alluvial basin: earthquake localization and characterization in this area is affected by the presence of soft alluvial deposits. OGS ha already experience in running a local seismic network in high noise conditions making use of borehole installations in the case of the micro-seismicity monitoring of a local gas storage site for a private company. Following the ML = 5.9 earthquake that struck the Emilia region around Ferrara in Northern Italy on 20 May 2012 at 02:03:53 UTC, a cooperation of Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, OGS, the Comune di Ferrara and the University of Ferrara lead to the reinstallation of a previously existing very broad band (VBB) borehole seismic station in Ferrara. The aim of the OGS intervention was on one hand to extend its real time seismic monitoring capabilities toward South-West, including Ferrara and its surroundings, and on the other hand to evaluate the seismic response at the site. We will describe improvements in running the North-eastern Italy Seismic Network, including details of

    Although concerns about safety of influenza vaccination during pregnancy have been raised in the past, vaccination of pregnant women was recommended in many countries during the 2009 A/H1N1 pandemic influenza. A retrospective cohort study was conducted to evaluate the risk of adverse maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes among pregnant women vaccinated with a MF59-adjuvanted A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccine. The study was carried out in four Italian regions (Piemonte, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Lazio, and Puglia) among 102,077 pregnant women potentially exposed during the second or third trimester of gestation to the vaccination campaign implemented in 2009/2010. Based on data retrieved from the regional administrative databases, the statistical analysis was performed using the Cox proportional-hazards model, adjusting for the propensity score to account for the potential confounding effect due to the socio-demographic characteristics and the clinical and reproductive history of women. A total of 100,332 pregnant women were eligible for the analysis. Of these, 2003 (2.0%) received the A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccination during the second or third trimester of gestation. We did not observe any statistically significant association between the A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccination and different maternal outcomes (hospital admissions for influenza, pneumonia, hypertension, eclampsia, diabetes, thyroid disease, and anaemia), fetal outcomes (fetal death after the 22nd gestational week) and neonatal outcomes (pre-term birth, low birth weight, low 5-min Apgar score, and congenital malformations). Pre-existing health-risk conditions (hospital admissions and drug prescriptions for specific diseases before the onset of pregnancy) were observed more frequently among vaccinated women, thus suggesting that concomitant chronic conditions increased vaccination uptake. The results of this study add some evidence on the safety of A/H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccination during

    2007-11-01

    Full Text Available The aim of the paper is to present the modelling of the ground effects of seismic waves on a large debris deposit lying on a steep mountain slope, with particular attention paid to the potential triggering of slope movements.

    The study site is a mass of 2.5 million m3 rock fall deposit, named "Monte Salta Landslide", located on the northern slope of the Vajont valley, at the border between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions in north-eastern Italy.

    Several historical landslide events were reported in the area in the past, first one dating back to the 17th century. The landslide deposit completely mantles the slope with a thick cover of rock blocks.

    The Mt. Salta landslide is conditioned by the presence of Mt. Borgà regional thrust, which uplifts Jurassic limestone on the top of Cretaceous rock units. Above the thrust zone, folded and highly fractured rock mass dips steeply towards the slope free face, producing highly unstable setting.

    The study area has been classified as high seismic hazard and different vulnerable elements can be affected by the remobilisation of debris, among which a village, a national road and a big quarry that was opened, with the intent to exploit the part of the landslide deposit for construction purposes.

    In this study, numerical analysis was performed, to simulate the slope behaviour using distinct element method and applying UDEC code. The 2-D models were built on three cross-sections and elasto-plastic behaviour was assumed, both for rock matrix and discontinuities. The earthquake effect was modelled in pseudo-dynamic way, i.e. by magnifying the acceleration and applying also its horizontal component. The expected seismic acceleration in the study area was calculated on the basis of previous studies as equal to 0.28 g.

    The results proved that the increase of the vertical component alone has a small influence on the deformational behaviour of the

    In 2010 PCV13 replaced PCV7 in the pediatric vaccination schedule for Italian children. While a strong herd effect was demonstrated for PCV7, a possible herd effect due to PCV13 is still under debate. Our aim was to evaluate differences in the distribution of pneumococcal serotypes between the pre and post-PCV13 eras in unvaccinated Italian adolescents and adults with laboratory-confirmed pneumococcal infection from 3 Italian Regions with a high rate of PCV13 vaccination of children. Adolescents and adults admitted with laboratory-confirmed pneumococcal infection in the hospitals of 3 Italian Regions (Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna, and Tuscany) between April 2006 and June 2016 were included in the study. Diagnosis of pneumococcal infection and serotyping were performed with Real Time PCR directly on normally sterile fluids or on culture isolates. 523 patients with laboratory-confirmed pneumococcal infection were enrolled (Male/Female ratio was 300/223, 1.3; median age 67.1, IQR 53.4-74.9). None of the patients had been vaccinated with any pneumococcal vaccine; 96.4% were serotyped. Overall, the most frequent serotypes were 3 (67/504, 13.3%), 8 (43/504, 8.5%), and 19A (38/504, 7.5%). Serotype distribution differed among age classes and clinical presentations. Overall, PCV13 serotypes accounted for 47.6% of cases: 62.3% in the pre-PCV13 era and 45.0% in the post-PCV13 era; (p=0.005 OR=2.03; CL 95%: 1.2-3.3). Serotype 7F accounted for 12/77 (15.6%) of all serotypes in the pre-PCV13 period and for 12/427 (2.8%) in the post-PCV13 period and was the only serotype significantly contributing to the difference in percentage between pre and post-PCV13 eras. Our study demonstrated a difference in percentage in serotype distribution in adolescents and adults laboratory-confirmed pneumococcal infection between the pre and post-PCV13 eras. This difference is mainly due to the decrease of serotype 7F. Thus, in order to decrease disease burden, adults and in particular the

    2016-04-01

    The main features of earthquake clusters in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (North Eastern Italy) are explored, with the aim to get some new insights on local scale patterns of seismicity in the area. The study is based on a systematic analysis of robustly and uniformly detected seismic clusters of small-to-medium magnitude events, as opposed to selected clusters analyzed in earlier studies. To characterize the features of seismicity for FVG, we take advantage of updated information from local OGS bulletins, compiled at the National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics, Centre of Seismological Research, since 1977. A preliminary reappraisal of the earthquake bulletins is carried out, in order to identify possible missing events and to remove spurious records (e.g. duplicates and explosions). The area of sufficient completeness is outlined; for this purpose, different techniques are applied, including a comparative analysis with global ISC data, which are available in the region for large and moderate size earthquakes. Various techniques are considered to estimate the average parameters that characterize the earthquake occurrence in the region, including the b-value and the fractal dimension of epicenters distribution. Specifically, besides the classical Gutenberg-Richter Law, the Unified Scaling Law for Earthquakes, USLE, is applied. Using the updated and revised OGS data, a new formal method for detection of earthquake clusters, based on nearest-neighbor distances of events in space-time-energy domain, is applied. The bimodality of the distribution, which characterizes the earthquake nearest-neighbor distances, is used to decompose the seismic catalog into sequences of individual clusters and background seismicity. Accordingly, the method allows for a data-driven identification of main shocks (first event with the largest magnitude in the cluster), foreshocks and aftershocks. Average robust estimates of the USLE parameters (particularly, b

    The role of citizen-scientists in collecting data and observations has been increasingly crucial in the last 10 years of atmospheric sciences. Meteonetwork is a non-profit organization founded by citizen scientists in 2002, in Lombardia, with the aim of raising public awareness about meteorological and climatological issues. Throughout the years the organization, besides the continuous holding of events such as meeting, conferences and talks, has been standing out because of its forum and its wide network of weather stations.

SETTING AND PARTICIPANT S: children born alive in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (Northern Italy) to resident mothers in the years 1989-2012, identified using the regional Medical Birth Register. we defined possible celiac disease as having at least one of the following, from 2002 onward: 1. a pathology report of intestinal villous atrophy; 2. a copayment exemption for celiac disease; 3. a hospital discharge record with ICD-9-CM code of celiac disease; 4. a gluten-free food prescription. We evaluated the proportion of subjects identified by each archive and by combinations of archives, and examined the temporal relationship of the different sources in cases identified by more than one source. RESULT S: out of 962 possible cases of celiac disease, 660 (68.6%) had a pathology report, 714 (74.2%) a copayment exemption, 667 (69.3%) a hospital discharge record, and 636 (66.1%) a gluten-free food prescription. The four sources coexisted in 42.2% of subjects, whereas 30.2% were identified by two or three sources and 27.6% by a single source (16.9% by pathology reports, 4.2% by hospital discharge records, 3.9% by copayment exemptions, and 2.6% by gluten-free food prescriptions). Excluding pathology reports, 70.6% of cases were identified by at least two sources. A definition based on copayment exemptions and discharge records traced 80.5% of the 962 possible cases of celiac disease; whereas a definition based on copayment exemptions, discharge records, and gluten-free food prescriptions traced 83.1% of those cases. The temporal relationship of the different sources was compatible with the typical diagnostic pathway of subjects with celiac

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Suboptimal translation of valid and relevant information in clinical practice is a problem for all health systems. Lack of information independent from commercial influences, limited efforts to actively implement evidence-based information and its limited comprehensibility are important determinants of this gap and may influence an excessive variability in physicians' prescriptions. This is quite noticeable in Italy, where the philosophy and methods of Evidence-Based Medicine still enjoy limited diffusion among practitioners. Academic detailing and pharmacist outreach visits are interventions of proven efficacy to make independent and evidence-based information available to physicians; this approach and its feasibility have not yet been tested on a large scale and, moreover, they have never been formally tested in Italy. Methods/Design Two RCTs are planned: 1 a two-arm cluster RCT, carried out in Emilia-Romagna and Friuli Venezia Giulia, will evaluate the effectiveness of small group meetings, randomising about 150 Primary Care Groups (corresponding to about 2000 GPs to pharmacist outreach visits on two different topics. Physicians' prescriptions (expressed as DDD per 1000 inhabitants/day, knowledge and attitudes (evaluated through the answers to a specific questionnaire will be compared for target drugs in the two groups (receiving/not receiving each topic. 2 A three-arm RCT, carried out in Sardinia, will evaluate both the effectiveness of one-to-one meetings (one pharmacist visiting one physician per time and of a 'new' information format (compared to information already available on changing physicians' prescription of specific drugs. About 900 single GPs will be randomised into three groups: physicians receiving a visit supported by "traditional" information material, those receiving a visit with "new" information material on the same topic and those not receiving any visit/material.

    Despite preventive efforts, seasonal influenza epidemics are responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality every year worldwide, including developed countries. The A/H1N1v pandemic imposed a considerable healthcare and economic burden. In order to obtain an accurate estimate of the economic burden of influenza, and hence to guide policymakers effectively, systematic studies are necessary. To this end, data from epidemiological surveillance are essential. To estimate the impact of the 1999-2008 seasonal influenza epidemics and the H1N1v pandemic, we analyzed data from the Italian Influenza Surveillance System (CIRI NET). In the period 1999-2008, the Italian surveillance network consisted of sentinel general practitioners and pediatricians, who reported cases of Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) and Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI ) observed during their clinical practice from mid-October to late April each year; reports were sent to the Center for Research on Influenza and other Viral Infections (CIRI -IV). CIRI -IV receives data from 9 of the 20 Italian regions: Liguria, Abruzzo, Calabria, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lombardy, Puglia, Sicily, Tuscany and Umbria. Previous estimates of influenza case costs were used in economic evaluations. Clinical-epidemiological and virological surveillance of the seasonal epidemics from 1999-2008 showed that the highest epidemic period was 2004-2005, when a new variant of the H3N2 influenza virus subtype emerged (A/California/07/04). Indeed, the highest peak of morbidity in the decade occurred in February 2005 (12.6 per 1,000 inhabitants). In 1999-2008, H1N1 subtype strains circulated and co-circulated with strains belonging to the H3N2 subtype and B type. Regarding B viruses in 2001-02, viruses belonged to the B/Victoria/02/07 lineage re-emerged, and in subsequent years co-circulated with viruses belonging to the B/Yamagata/lineage. The estimated costs of seasonal epidemics from 1999-2008 in Italy ranged from €15 to €20

    Full Text Available Objective: To assess the burden of regional environmental factors influencing the incidence of Melanoma in the Italian population and overcome the problem of partial population coverage by local cancer registries and thematic archives. Methods: We analyzed the Italian national hospitalization records from 2001 to 2008 provided by the Ministry of Health, excluding hospital re-admissions of the same patients, in order to assess the occurrence of Melanoma over a 8-year period. Data were presented by age groups (absolute number of cases from 20 to ≥80 years old and per Region (rates per 100,000 inhabitants for each year. Results: The overall number of new hospitalizations due to malignant Melanoma increased by 16.8% from 2001 (n = 4846 to 2008 (n = 5823, with the rate per 100,000 inhabitants passing from 10.5 to almost 12.0 at a national level. The majority of new diagnoses of malignant Melanoma was observed in two age groups: 61–70 years old (from 979 in 2001 up to 2109 in 2008, corresponding to 15.1 and 18.1 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants, respectively and 71–80 years old (from 954 in 2001 up to 1141 in 2008, corresponding to 19.5 and 21.8 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants, respectively. The number of hospitalizations due to Melanoma increased in all age groups with the only exception of the youngest patients aged 20–30 years old. The highest increases over the 8-year period were observed in people aged ≥81 years old (+34%, 61–70 years old (+20% and surprisingly in the age group 31–40 years old (+17%. Southern Regions showed lower hospitalization rates compared to Northern Italy and Region Lazio. The highest increases between 2001 and 2008 were observed in Trentino/Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Valla d’Aosta and Veneto Region. Conclusions: Hospitalizations due to malignant Melanoma in Italy seem to be influenced by environmental or population-related factors showing a decreasing incidence rate from the Northern to Southern

    The knowledge of the seismic history of its own territory, the understanding of physical phenomena in response to an earthquake, the changes in the cultural heritage following a strong earthquake, the learning of actions to be taken during and after an earthquake, are piece of information that contribute to keep focus on the seismic hazard and to implement strategies for seismic risk mitigation. The training of new generations, today more than ever subject to rapid forgetting of past events, becomes therefore a key element to increase the perception that earthquakes happened and can happen at anytime and that mitigation actions are the only means to ensure the safety and to reduce damages and human losses. Since several years our institute (OGS) is involved in activities to raise awareness of education on earthquake. We aim to implement education programs with the goal of addressing a critical approach to seismic hazard reduction, differentiating the types of activities according to the age of the students. However, being such kind of activity unfunded, we can act at now only on a very limited number of schools per year. To be effective, the inclusion of the seismic risk issues in school curricula requires specific time and appropriate approaches when planning activities. For this reason, we involve also the teachers as proponents of activities and we encourage them to keep alive memories and discussion on earthquake in the classes. During the past years we acted mainly in the schools of the Friuli Venezia Giulia area (NE Italy), that is an earthquake prone area struck in 1976 by a destructive seismic event (Ms=6.5). We organized short training courses for teachers, we lectured classes, and we led laboratory activities with students. Indeed, being well known that students enjoy classes more when visual and active learning are joined, we propose a program that is composed by seminars, demonstrations and hands-on activities in the classrooms; for high school students

    Full Text Available The audio recordings of the Luigi Nono Archive in Venice: guidelines for preservation and critical edition of audio documentsStudying audio recordings brings us back to ancient source verification problems that too often one thinks are overcome by the technical reproduction of sound. Au-dio signal is “fixed” on a specific carrier (tape, disc etc with a specific audio format (speed, number of tracks etc; the choice of support and format during the first “memorizing” process and the following copying processes is a subjective and, in case of copying, an interpretative operation conducted within a continuously evolv-ing audio technology. What we listen to today is the result of a transmission process that unavoidably transforms the original acoustic event and the documents that memorize it. Audio recording is no way a timeless and immutable fixing process. It is therefore necessary to study the transmission processes and to reconstruct the au-dio document tradition. The re-recording of the tapes of the Archivio Luigi Nono, conducted by the Audio Labs of the DAMS Musica of the University of Udine, of-fers clear examples of the technical and musicological interpretative problems one can find when he works with audio recordings.

    We develop a reactive-transport porous media flow model for a phosphogypsum dump located on the intertidal deposits of the Venetian Lagoon: 1. we construct a complex conceptual and geologic model from field data using the GMS™ graphical user interface; 2. the geological model is mapped onto a rectangular MODFLOW grid; 3. using the TMT2 FORTRAN90 code we translate this grid into the MESH, INCON and GENER input files for the TOUGH2 series of codes; 4. we run TOUGH-REACT to model flow and reactive transport in the dump and the sediments below it. The model includes 3 different dump materials (phosphogypsum, bituminous and hazardous wastes) with the pores saturated by specific fluids. The sediments below the dump are formed by an intertidal sequence of calcareous sands and silts, in addition to clays and organic deposits, all of which are initially saturated with lagoon salty waters. The recharge rain-water dilutes the dump fluids. In turn, the percolates from the dump react with the underlying sediments and the sea water that saturates them. Simulation results have been compared with chemical sampled analyses. In fact, in spite of the simplicity of our model we are able to show how the pH becomes neutral at a short distance below the dump, a fact observed during aquifer monitoring. The spatial and temporal evolution of dissolution and precipitation reactions occur in our model much alike reality. Mobility of some elements, such as divalent iron, are reduced by specific and concurrent conditions of pH from near-neutrality to moderately high values and positive redox potential; opposite conditions favour mobility of potentially toxic metals such as Cr, As Cd and Pb. Vertical movement are predominant. Trend should be therefore heavily influenced by pH and Eh values. If conditions are favourable to mobility, concentration of these substances in the bottom strata could be high. However, simulation suggest that the sediments tend to reduce the transport potential of contaminants.

    During 2009 the Natural Science Museum of Trento organized the exhibition "Attraction Earth: Earthquakes and Terrestrial Magnetism" in collaboration with the INGV (Italian National Institute of Geophysic and Volcanology). In this exhibition a particular sector has been devoted to the seismic activity and its monitoring in the Province of Trento. The purpose was to inform local people on the geological features of their territory, the monitoring activity carried out by the Civil Protection and the potential earthquake hazards, also in order to adopt a correct behaviour in case of seismic event. This sector, "The seismometric Trentino network", was organized by the Geological Service of the Trento Civil Protection and it is open till May 2010, both for general public and school students. For the latter, a particular education pack, realized by the Educational Department of the Museum and consisting of a guided tour coupled with the laboratory activity "Waves upside-down: seismology", is proposed. The whole exhibition has been also coupled with a cycle conferences targeted to adults, in which these topics have been explained by researchers and technicians of INGV and of Trento Geological Service. "The seismometric Trentino network" sector presents the daily monitoring activity of the Geological Service, that has been monitoring the seismic activity for the last 30 years, and describes the deep earth processes of the local territory, such as presence of tectonic discontinuities and their activity. It consists of display panels, a seismometer with rotating drums and a multimedia that reports the monitoring activity of the seismometric network, with real time connection to the various monitoring stations. This allows visitors to observe instantly the local seismic events recorded by each station. The seismometric network was established by the institutions of Trento Province after the earthquakes occurred in Friuli Venezia-Giulia and at Riva del Garda (1976). It started

    Although outcropping only rarely in Italy, gypsum karst has been described in detail since the early XXth century (Marinelli, 1917). Gypsum caves are now known from almost all Italian regions (Madonia & Forti, 2003), but are mainly localised along the northern border of the Apennine chain (Emilia Romagna and Marche regions), Calabria, and Sicily, where the major outcrops occur. Recently, important caves have also been discovered in the underground gypsum quarries in Piedmont (Vigna et al., 2010). During the late 80s and 90s several multidisciplinary studies have been carried out in many gypsum areas. All this work converged into a comprehensive overview in 2003 (Madonia & Forti, 2003). Further detailed studies focused on the gypsum areas of Emilia Romagna (Chiesi et al., 2010; Forti & Lucci, 2010; Demaria et al., 2012; De Waele & Pasini, 2013; Ercolani et al., 2013; Columbu et al., 2015; Lucci & Piastra, 2015; Tedeschi et al., 2015) and of Sicily (Madonia & Vattano, 2011). Sinkholes related to Permo-Triassic gypsum have been studied in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Zini et al., 2015). This presentation will review the state of the art regarding different aspects of evaporite karst in Italy focusing on the main new results. References Chiesi M., et al.

    Nel presente paper si intende sostenere la necessità di un nuovo approccio alla pianificazione delle infrastrutture nazionali ed alla programmazione dei grandi assi multimodali, in modo da focalizzarsi maggiormente su quelle infrastrutture e quei territori che, in quanto posizionati lungo le principali direttrici di traffico europee, potrebbero caratterizzarsi, in tempi non “biblici”, come gateway europee in territorio italiano.

    Si sostiene che diversi strumenti programmatori che si sono alternati nell’ultimo decennio in Italia non hanno saputo individuare quei pochi veri hub portuali ed interportuali in grado di garantire effettivamente l’accesso ai grandi network internazionali e generare benefici economici già nel breve-medio termine, preferendo adottare, invece, visioni proiettate su scenari futuri, largamente incerti o mutevoli. E’ il caso del Friuli Venezia Giulia, inquadrato nella Piattaforma Logistica del Nord-Est, dove strategie infrastrutturali, logistiche ed industriali incardinate su un ipotetico Corridoio V, anziché sull’esistente (ma non ancora riconosciuto nelle mappe europee corridoio Adriatico-Baltico, hanno finito per trascurare fondamentali infrastrutture esistenti (ferrovia Pontebbana, Interporto di Cervignano e zone industriali.

    Il caso analizzato suggerisce l’ipotesi che il riaggancio del nostro paese all’intera rete europea dei trasporti e della logistica possa essere rappresentato, non tanto dal Corridoio V, quanto dagli assi che si sviluppano lungo la direttrice nord-sud (Corridoi 24, 1 ed Adriatico-Baltico e che connettono i potenziali gateway europei del Mediterraneo settentrionale (Alto Adriatico e Alto Tirreno alle aree più produttive d’Europa

    basins of the rivers emptying into the upper Adriatic as well as the
    mountains bordering it, Caloi et al observed, in commenting an the

    reference to the last century, that:
    "It began with the strong earthquake of Santa Croce in 1875,
    which suddenly broke the relative seismic quiet that had endured
    throughout the broad zone since 1800. The disastrous seismic crisis
    of the Lake Santa Croce zone was followed that same year by strong
    seismic activity on the opposite side of the plain, at Cattolica near
    the sea, along the northern Appennine slopes. It almost seems that
    these violent ruptures of the seismic equilibrium on the two sides of the
    plain were linked as cause and effect, and vice versa. The same phenomenon

  12. Managed Aquifer Recharge in Italy: present and prospects.

    2015-04-01

    On October the 3rd 2014, a one-day Workshop on Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) experiences in Italy took place at the GEOFLUID fair in Piacenza. It was organized within the framework of the EIP AG 128 - MAR Solutions - Managed Aquifer Recharge Strategies and Actions and the EU FPVII MARSOL. The event aimed at showcasing present experiences on MAR in Italy while at the same time starting a network among all the Institutions involved. In this contribution, we discuss the state of MAR application in Italy and summarize the outcomes of that event. In Italy aquifer recharge is traditionally applied unintentionally, by increasing riverbank filtration or because of excess irrigation. A certain interest for artificial recharge of aquifers arose at the end of the '70s and the beginning of the '80s and tests have been carried out in Tuscany, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. During the last years some projects on aquifer recharge were co-financed by the European Commission mainly through the LIFE program. Nearly all of them use the terminology of artificial recharge instead of MAR. They are: - TRUST (Tool for regional - scale assessment of groundwater storage improvement in adaptation to climate change, LIFE07 ENV/IT/000475; Marsala 2014); - AQUOR (Implementation of a water saving and artificial recharging participated strategy for the quantitative groundwater layer rebalance of the upper Vicenza's plain - LIFE 2010 ENV/IT/380; Mezzalira et al. 2014); - WARBO (Water re-born - artificial recharge: innovative technologies for the sustainable management of water resources, LIFE10 ENV/IT/000394; 2014). While the TRUST project dealt in general with aquifer recharge, AQUOR and WARBO focused essentially on small scale demonstration plants. Within the EU FPVII-ENV-2013 MARSOL project (Demonstrating Managed Aquifer Recharge as a Solution to Water Scarcity and Drought; 2014), a dedicated monitoring and decision support system is under development to manage recharge at a large scale

    Full Text Available Di nessuna delle due mogli di Berengario I – Bertilla, la prima, un’aristocratica di origine supponide e Anna, la seconda, una principessa bizantina – si sono conservate le carte dei dotari. Di entrambe, inoltre, nessuna carta ricorda attività economiche o patrimoniali. Nel contesto familiare di Berengario I emerge però una delle due figlie, Berta, che fu badessa del monastero di San Salvatore di Brescia e poi anche, per nomina paterna, del monastero di San Sisto di Piacenza, fondato pochi decenni prima da Angelberga. Entrambi i monasteri avevano raccolto nei loro patrimoni larghe quote del fisco regio, spesso in prima istanza transitati nei dotari delle regine: le curtes e i monasteri dipendenti erano sparsi in tutta la parte settentrionale della penisola e, in taluni casi, oltrepassavano la linea degli Appennini. Berta appare così assumere presso la corte di Berengario una funzione di grande rilievo nella gestione e nella salvaguardia dei patrimoni di tali monasteri.Of none of the two wives of Berengar I - Bertilla, the first, an aristocratic woman from the Supponids and Anna, the second, a Byzantine princess - have been preserved dower charters; moreover no charter reminds businesses or assets. In the family context of Berengar I emerges, however, one of his two daughters, Berta, who was abbess of the monastery of St. Salvatore in Brescia and later, by his father's appointment, of the monastery of St. Sisto in Piacenza, founded a few decades earlier by Angelberga. Both monasteries were collected in their assets large shares of royal treasury, often in the first instance passed through in doweries of the queens: the curtes and the dependent monasteries were spread across the northern part of the peninsula and, in some cases, they passed the line of the Apennines. It looks like as at the court of Berengar Berta  assumes a role of great importance in the management and safeguarding of the assets of these monasteries.

    Full Text Available Global eutopias for Southern Italy: about the hermeneutics of the subject of Lecce, Matera and Venice, Italian candidate cities for European Capital of Culture 2019This article proposes a critical discourse analysis (CDA of a debate between the Italian applicant cities seeking the title of European Capital of Culture 2019. The discourse concerning the cultural future of these cities highlights a process of change, involving different configurations of institutional stakeholders and/or local grassroots communities, which, top-down and/or bottom-up, reinvent the historical past of the city in order to comply with institutional EU requirements regarding the impact of regions on common European cultural heritage. The approaches adopted by Venice, Matera and Lecce are quite different in this respect: whereas Venice insists on its position within a cultural, economic and multilingual transnational macro-region, Matera reinvents itself as a new regional meeting ground between a local and global European culture, as a Southern (Italian city that can offer universal values to Europe as a whole, such as the notion of shame in times of crisis. At a theoretical level, discussion of the candidature of these potential future capitals of culture offers a corpus in which the discourse of social change, central to CDA, can be observed. Given the dynamic interplay between political requirements and regional activism (less present in Lecce’s arguments in the ECoC proposals, this research calls for an epistemological updating of CDA’s archaeological and static view on the Foucauldian relation between subjects and power in favor of Foucault’s late hermeneutic of the self-constituting subject.

    The phosphoric minerals utilized in phosphoric acid production, presents high concentrations of radioactive materials: U238, Th 232, K 40. The phosphogypsum is the waste material obtained in the phosphoric acid production in wet process. This type of production method is employed for many years in Venice lagoon (Porto Marghera chemical plants). In this paper are reported evaluations of radiological impact on aquatic environment of lagoon. [Italian] Con il termine di fosfogessi si intende comunemente il materiale di risulta che si ottiene nella produzione di acido fosforico attraverso la via umida (attacco acido). Questa tipologia di produzione che ha operato per diversi decenni a Porto Marghera, e' finalizzata allo scopo di ottenere acido fosforico principalmente per l'industria dei fertilizzanti e quindi come prodotto intermedio per la chimica e per le preparazioni alimentari. Il fosforo, elemento principale della reazione, era ricavato da rocce fosfatiche di origine sedimentaria marina provenienti per lo piu' dall'Africa settentrionale. Il sistema produttivo utilizzato negli impianti di Porto Marghera era basato su una reazione principale, che partendo dal minerale attraverso un attacco acido, produceva acido fosforico: Ca{sub 3}(PO{sub 4}){sub 2} (Minerale Fosforico) + 3H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} (Acido Solforico) + 3H{sub 2}O (Acqua) {yields} 2H{sub 3}PO{sub 4} (Acido fosforico) + 3CaSO{sub 4}H{sub 2}O (Solfato di calcio (gesso)). In particolare il minerale era preventivamente macinato e vagliato, quindi si procedeva alla sua miscelazione con l'acido fosforico ed alla successiva reazione del composto ottenuto.

    Full Text Available After a short description of the disastrous effects of the
    tornado which struck the Venice lagoon on September 11, 1970, the principal
    theories which in the centuries tried to account for the origin of such
    terrible vortexes, are reviewed. In particular, some remarks are given about
    the electrical theory of the tornadoes. It seems to the author that some features
    would be explained in a simple way by considering the tornado as a
    convectivo cell with electric currents of high intensity. Finally, after recalling
    the meteorological conditions preceding the tornado of September 11,
    its chief features are described.

    Full Text Available

    Background: In the Italian National Health Service hospital planning was influenced by two aspects: the patients’ freedom to choose their health care provider and the equal distribution of centers spread throughout Italy. While every Italian Region should be able to meet the health needs of its own inhabitants, consistent migration among regions exists. Retrospective studies of cross boundaries patient flows can be useful for health planning purposes, providing precious information about citizens’ preferences, and helping health managers to think about inequality and adjust the offer of care. The aim of this study is to describe cross boundary flows which occurred across all the Italian Regions in 2003.

    Methods: The hospital discharges for 2003 were obtained from the General Directorate for Health Planning of the Italian Ministry of Health. We analyzed regional cross boundary flows using the Gandy Nomogram. This tool, which assesses patient mobility, can be used to describe regions’ ability to satisfy their internal health demand and their own capability in attracting foreign patients.

    Results: All of the regions, for the most part, were able to satisfy internal health care demands, and are placed in the upper right corner of the Gandy Nomogram. Umbria, Emilia Romagna, P. A. di Bolzano, Tuscany, Lombardy, Friuli V. Giulia, Lazio, Abruzzo were the regions that appeared to perform best. The Lombardy region attracts the most patients.

    Conclusions: This study briefly provides an evaluation of hospital supply of services giving indications about patients’ perception of the quality and organization of services. A deeper analysis of patient migration may be undertaken by looking at specific diseases. This kind of research could be useful for planning and maximising supplies when making decisions about healthcare.

  8. PRESS40: a project for involving students in active seismic risk mitigation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Barnaba, Carla; Contessi, Elisa; Rosa Girardi, Maria

    2016-04-01

    To memorialize the anniversary of the 1976 Friuli earthquake, the Istituto Statale di Istruzione Superiore "Magrini Marchetti" in Gemona del Friuli (NE Italy), with the collaboration of the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS), has promoted the PRESS40 Project (Prevenzione Sismica nella Scuola a 40 anni dal terremoto del Friuli, that in English sounds like "Seismic Prevention at School 40 years later the Friuli earthquake"). The project has developed in the 2015-2016 school year, starting from the 40th anniversary of the Friuli earthquake, and it aims to disseminate historical memory, seismic culture and awareness of seismic safety in the young generations, too often unconscious of past experiences, as recent seismic hazard perception tests have demonstrated. The basic idea of the PRESS40 Project is to involve the students in experimental activities to be active part of the seismic mitigation process. The Project is divided into two main parts, the first one in which students learn-receive knowledge from researchers, and the second one in which they teach-bring knowledge to younger students. In the first part of the project, 75 students of the "Magrini Marchetti" school acquired new geophysical data, covering the 23 municipalities from which they come from. These municipalities represent a wide area affected by the 1976 Friuli earthquake. In each locality a significant site was examined, represented by a school area. At least, 127 measurements of ambient noise have been acquired. Data processing and interpretation of all the results are still going on, under the supervision of OGS researchers.The second part of the project is planned for the early spring, when the students will present the results of geophysical survey to the younger ones of the monitored schools and to the citizens in occasion of events to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Friuli earthquake.

    On 13 March, a beam of negative hydrogen ions was injected into the first accelerator module of Linac 4, the linear accelerator which will replace Linac 2. The beam was created in the new source built for Linac 4 and accelerated from 45 kEV to 3 MeV by a radiofrequency quadrupole (RFQ) module, the first link in the Linac 4 accelerator chain. This crucial phase went off without a hitch. The video above shows the new Linac 4 ion source, the low-energy transfer line and the RFQ, with running commentary by Giulia Bellodi and Carlo Rossi from the Beams Department.

In the northwest in the area of the present Slovenia, it represents uniform platform. In the northwestern continuation of the Budva Trough, shallow halftrough formed and more to the west, shallow Friuli Paleogene Basin came in to being, which separated so called Friuli Carbonate Platform from the central part of the carbonate platform. Area of Istria was separated from Adriatic segment with Kvarner Fault, originated already in the Mesozoic.External Dinaric Thrust Belt formed in the finalphaseoftheDinaridesoverthrusting.ItoriginatedfromDinaricsegment of the Mesozoic Carbonate Platform at the end of the Eocene and was thrusted on the Adriatic segment of the Mesozoic Carbonate Platform.

Later also represents rigid indenter of the Adria Lithospheric Microplate (“Adria”, and External Dinaric Imbricate Belt represents its deformed margin, therefore we place it to the rigid indenter.Segmentation of the “Adria” occurred in the Miocene or later. It roughly disintegrated in the Padan and Adriatic part along Kvarner Fault. During rotation of the Padan part in the counter clockwise sense, the corner part, representing Istria Peninsula, rotated and underthrusted towards northeast under External Dinarides. As a result, Istria-Friuli Underthrust Zone formed, structurally conditioned with the position of the Friuli Paleogene Basin, and vast Istria Pushed Area between Southern Alps, Velebit Mts. and Želimlje Fault. This process is still active recently.During Istria underthrusting and pushing in the northwest direction, Ra

    Full Text Available I testi liguri non letterari sono stati indagati frequentemente, soprattutto dagli storici per i dati concreti che forniscono alla storia economica e della marineria. Il preziosissimo dizionario di Aprosio è stato assai utile per le dichiarazioni di lemma. I documenti qui pubblicati, per la maggior parte ascrivibili a Savona, sono spesso ostici o di spiegazione incerta o dubbia, ma meno difficili per l’indagine etimologica, e si prestano ancora a uno spoglio sistematico, eventualmente accompagnato da un’analisi dei relativi tratti linguistici; si pubblica qui un glossario selettivo, con intento precipuamente documentaristico, secondo il modello inaugurato da Giulia Petracco Sicardi.  The non-literary Ligurian texts have been investigated frequently, especially by historians for concrete data they provide, such as to enable you to create an economic and seafaring history. The precious dictionary by Aprosio was very useful for the lemma statements. The documents published here are difficult and often their explanation is uncertain or dubious (the etymological research is perhaps less difficult. Overall, they can be easily analysed in a systematic way, possibly accompanied with the analysis of the linguistic traits, as most of them goes back to Savona; at this moment in time we can get a selective glossary, with primarily documentary intent, based on the model pioneered by Giulia Petracco Sicardi.

    Full Text Available This paper proposes to examine Giulia Civita Franceschi’s work in the city of Naples, in favour of abandoned childhood. Between 1913 and 1928, she obtained by the Ministry of Navy and steered the training ship Caracciolo, which became for many urchins their home and family. So, they had the occasion to be saved from misery and delinquency. While before it they crowded streets, squares and arcades of the city, searching charity and ready to steel for surviving, on board ship they became little sailors, living a laborious and restrained life. Civita, inspiring to the concept of the sea as an educator, showed that thanks to her method, edged children and boys could become citizens, conscious of their rights and duties. The ship was site of visits by Italian and foreign delegations, which went to observe closer an educative experiment, considered as a pattern to imitate. The ship was a «second birth» for the Neapolitan urchins, offering them a new starting point, not an arrival point or a temporary protective recovery. The orientation impressed by Giulia Civita, in fact, marked the “Caracciolo” among other similar experiences as a unique educative pattern.

    Our study region is placed on Adriatic Plate and the boundaries are Dinaric Orogenic Belt, Carnic, Tolmezzo and Julian Alps. The area has normal, reverse and strike slip faults which can generate big earthquakes such as 1976 Mw 6.5 Friuli Earthquake, 1998 and 2004 Bovec-Krn Earthquakes. The area is located between Austria, Slovenia and Italy. Our group, SEISRAM, has dense seismic station on the Italian part of the region and has access to get data from other countries on the region. We are monitoring the region with a good coverage by collaborating with other institutes on the Ce3RN project which we are also part of. We can detect lower than 0.5 Magnitude earthquakes. We use our database and other seismological centers to investigate the seismicity of the region between 1960 and 2016. Gutenberg - Richter magnitude frequency relationship is applied in order to get a knowledge about the seismicity of Friuli region. By using the database 'a' and 'b' values of the region are found. Same procedure is done for each fault line, separately. Magnitude of completeness for each fault are calculated. Calculation of earthquake probabilities for fixed periodic times for possible from magnitude 3 to magnitude 6 earthquakes. All calculations are done by using Matlab based ZMAP program.

    Full Text Available Emma Tettoni (Novara, 1859 – Bergamo, 1891 was a teacher in secondary schools for women, headmistress of the Scuola normale femminile in Rovigo (Italy, student of Giosuè Carducci at Bologna University (1879-1881 and classmate of Giovanni Pascoli and Giulia Cavallari Cantalamessa. She devoted her life to teaching and writing, considering them prerequisites for female emancipation. Moving from her correspondence with the great Italian poet - teacher, but also from her female friendship network, it is possible to trace the phases of her arduous life as social and professional engaged young woman. Because of the novelty of her ideas, expressed in education lectures (on love, women’s work, women scientists and the faults of Italian mothers, she suffered the painful ostracism of conservative factions. In 1890 she joined the organization of VI Centenary of Beatrice Portinari, in Florence.

    Full Text Available The present article investigates the training of female stage practitioners and their versatility in performing different genres. Through select case studies – such as those of Giulia de Caro and Teresa Gandini – it aims to trace the careers of actresses seeking to create an identity in the stage industry. Several sources describe their still unknown professional development, focusing both on parts and roles and on their performing skills (singing, dance, prose. As members of a society and a stage industry which still defy a thorough illustration, they reveal complex personalities that go far beyond brief and concise ‘biographies’. Needless to say, they interact with ‘multitasking’ colleagues, as can be seen in the troupes of Domenico Antonio Di Fiore and Gabriele Costantini, whose actors were eager to work on different ‘stages’, showing how varied and intriguing their specialization was.

    La guerra con Venezia del 1404-1405 rappresentò un momento cruciale nella storia di Padova. Essa segnò infatti la fine definitiva dell’autonomia patavina e il passaggio della città e del suo territorio sotto il diretto controllo di Venezia. L’assedio finale, narratoci nella Cronaca di Bartolomeo Gatari, durò quasi cinque mesi e sottopose Padova ad una prova molto severa: sovraffollamento di uomini e animali entro le muta urbane, carenza di viveri, precarie condizioni igienico-sanitarie, epidemia di peste. In questa situazione il rapporto tra l’ultimo signore della città, Francesco Novello da Carrara, e i cives padovani andò progressivamente logorandosi: l’emergenza indusse infine una divaricazione nella visuale politica dell’uno e degli altri, anche se, al momento della resa, la collettività cittadina tentò, inutilmente, di intercedere a favore dei signori sconfitti. Dalla catastrofe Padova uscì con una nuova consapevolezza di sé: mentre le sue tradizioni civiche e l’ordinamento sociale apparivano ben sedimentati, la sua capacità di espressione politica e militare, di cui si erano fatti interpreti per quasi un secolo i signori da Carrara, aveva rivelato limiti insuperabili di fronte alle risorse messe in campo da Venezia.

    The war with Venice from 1404-1405 represented a crucial moment in the history of Padua. In fact, it marked the definite end of the autonomy of the people of Padua and the passage of the city and its territory under the control of Venice. The final siege, narrated in the Chronicles of Bartolomeo Gatari, lasted almost five months and subjected Padua to a very severe test: overcrowding of man and animals within the city walls, lack of provisions, precarious health-hygiene conditions and epidemics of the plague. In this situation the relationship between the last nobleman of the city, Francesco Novello da Carrara, and the civies of Padua continued progressively to

    This study estimated in 7 Italian cities the prevalence of prenatal exposure to ethanol by determining fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs; palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, linolenic, and arachidonic esters) and ethyl glucuronide (EtG) in neonatal meconium samples. A total of 607 meconium samples were obtained from neonatal wards of 7 public hospitals: Verona and San Daniele del Friuli in the northeast of the country, Reggio Emilia in the middle east, Florence and Rome in the center, and Naples and Crotone in the southwest of the peninsula. Meconium biomarkers were assessed by a validated methodology using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and the results categorized using the accepted cutoff of 2 nmol/g total amount of 7 FAEEs and 2 nmol/g EtG, to differentiate between heavy maternal ethanol use during pregnancy and occasional or no use at all. On the basis of the above-reported cutoffs, the overall prevalence of newborns prenatally exposed to maternal ethanol was 7.9%: 0% in Verona, 4.0% in San Daniele del Friuli, 4.9% in Naples, 5.0% in Florence, 6.2% in Crotone, up to 10.6% in Reggio Emilia, and 29.4% in Rome. Low maternal education level and younger maternal age were associated with biomarker scores over the cutoff. There was also a significant correlation between the highest percentage of prenatal exposure in the capital and certain maternal sociodemographic characteristics. These results indicate considerable variability in the prevalence of fetal exposure to ethanol in different Italian cities, as determined by the objective measurement of biomarkers in meconium. These data, together with previous ones obtained in Barcelona, Spain, indicate that gestational ethanol exposure is widespread, at least in parts of Europe.

    Full Text Available After the 1976 Friuli earthquake (Ms = 6.5 in north-eastern Italy that caused about 1,000 casualties and widespread destruction in the Friuli area, the Italian government established the Centro di Ricerche Sismologiche (CRS. This is now a department of the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS, and it is specifically devoted to the monitoring of the seismicity of north-eastern Italy. Since its inception, the North-East Italy Seismic Network has grown enormously. Currently, it consists of 14 broad-band and 20 short-period seismic stations, all of which are telemetered to and acquired in real time at the OGS-CRS data center in Udine. Data exchange agreements in place with other Italian, Slovenian, Austrian and Swiss seismological institutes lead to a total number of 94 seismic stations acquired in real time, which confirms that the OGS is the reference institute for seismic monitoring of north-eastern Italy. Since 2002, CRS has been using the Antelope software suite as the main tool for collecting, analyzing, archiving and exchanging seismic data. SeisComP is also used as a real-time data exchange server tool. A customized web-accessible server is used to manually relocate earthquakes, and automatic procedures have been set-up for moment-tensor determination, shaking-map computation, web publishing of earthquake parametric data, waveform drumplots, state-of-health parameters, and quality checks of the station by spectra analysis. Scripts for email/SMS/fax alerting to public institutions have also been customized. Recently, a real-time seismology website was designed and set-up (http://rts.crs.inogs.it/.

  17. Realistic modelling of observed seismic motion in compIex sedimentary basins

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    G. F. Panza

    1994-06-01

    Full Text Available Three applications of a numerical technique are illustrated to model realistically the seismic ground motion for complex two-dimensional structures. First we consider a sedimentary basin in the Friuli region, and we model strong motion records from an aftershock of the 1976 earthquake. Then we simulate the ground motion caused in Rome by the 1915, Fucino (Italy earthquake, and we compare our modelling with the damage distribution observed in the town. Finally we deal with the interpretation of ground motion recorded in Mexico City, as a consequence of earthquakes in the Mexican subduction zone. The synthetic signals explain the major characteristics (relative amplitudes, spectral amplification, frequency content of the considered seismograms, and the space distribution of the available macroseismic data. For the sedimentary basin in the Friuli area, parametric studies demonstrate the relevant sensitivity of the computed ground motion to small changes in the subsurface topography of the sedimentary basin, and in the velocity and quality factor of the sediments. The relative Arias Intensity, determined from our numerical simulation in Rome, is in very good agreoment with the distribution of damage observed during the Fucino earthquake. For epicentral distances in the range 50 km-100 km, the source location and not only the local soil conditions control the local effects. For Mexico City, the observed ground motion can be explained as resonance effects and as excitation of local surface waves, and the theoretical and the observed maximum spectral amplifications are very similar. In general, our numerical simulations estimate the maximum and average spectral amplification for specific sites, i.e. they are a very powerful tool for accurate micro-zonation

The section was studied sedimentologically in detail and dated with radiolarians. It is divided into five lithostratigraphic units: Unit 1: Lower Jurassic shallow-water peloidal and oncoidal limestones; Unit 2: Pliensbachian distal shelf limestones rich in juvenile ammonites and sponge spicules topped by an Fe-Mn hardground; Unit 3: lower to possibly middle Toarcian sequence of black shales with interbedded siliceous limestone; Unit 4: upper Bajocian/Bathonian to lower Tithonian cherts, cherty limestones, and carbonate gravity-flow deposits; Unit 5: upper Tithonian red nodular cherty limestones with abundant calpionellids and aptychi. A stratigraphic gap, comprising the late Toarcian to early Bajocian, separates Unit 4 from Unit 3. In general, the succession correlates well with known Tethyan transgressive/regressive facies cycles. In addition, two periods of accelerated subsidence were recognized, the first, in the Pliensbachian, drowned the platform, the second, prior to the late Bajocian, created accommodation space for resedimented carbonate deposits from the adjacent Friuli Carbonate Platform. The present day position of the succession is between the Belluno Basin to the west and the Slovenian Basin to the south. The hitherto described successions of these two basins were located more distally from the Friuli Carbonate Platform than the Mt. Mangart succession.

    Leatherback sea turtles Dermochelys coriacea are regularly reported in the Mediterranean Sea but rarely reach the northern Adriatic Sea. In the summer of 2009, a well-preserved carcass of an adult female of this species was found dead along the coast of Lido di Venezia. A complete necropsy was carried out, along with evaluation of levels of tissue trace elements. The the post-mortem revealed acute severe bacterial gastroenteritis caused by Photobacterium damselae ssp. piscicida, an opportunistic agent that infected an apparently debilitated animal weakened by ingested plastic debris. High levels of heavy metals (Hg, Pb, Cd and As) found in the liver and kidneys might have contributed to the animal's demise. These findings support previous indications that marine debris is one of the major threats to marine animals, particularly for critically endangered species such as the leatherback turtle.

    A research program addressed to evaluate the magnesium hydride storage scaling up effects is being developed by CESI RICERCA, Milano, and the Hydrogen Group of Padova University. A storage device containing 500 g of magnesium hydride powder (manufactured by Venezia Tecnologie S.p.A. using high-energy ball milling) has been designed and tested in different operating conditions. A number of absorption and desorption cycles at different temperatures and pressures has been carried out in order to see if the results are comparable with laboratory data obtained on small amounts (fractions of grams) of powder samples. A sensible performance degradation that reduced the overall storage capacity of about 50% has been noticed after 20 cycles, presumably due to local powder heating, fragmentation and subsequent compaction. Further tests on a smaller tank equipped also with a porous baffle gave useful indications for the design of an improved large hydrogen reservoir. (author)

    The region of the Central and Eastern Europe is an area characterised by a relatively high seismicity. The active seismogenic structures and the related potentially destructive events are located in the proximity of the political boundaries between several countries existing in the area. An example is the seismic region between the NE Italy (FVG, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto), Austria (Tyrol, Carinthia) and Slovenia. So when a destructive earthquake occurs in the area, all the three countries are involved. In the year 2001 the Agencija Republike Slovenije za Okolje (ARSO) in Slovenia, the Department of Mathematics and Geoscience of the University of Trieste (DMG), the OGS (Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale) in Italy and the Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik (ZAMG) in Austria signed an agreement for the real-time seismological data exchange in the Southeastern Alps region. Soon after the Interreg IIIa Italia-Austria projects "Trans-National Seismological Networks in the South-Eastern Alps" and "FASTLINK" started. The main goal of these projects was the creation of a transfrontier network for the common seismic monitoring of the region for scientific and civil defense purposes. During these years the high quality data recorded by the transfrontier network has been used, by the involved institutions, for their scientific research, for institutional activities and for the civil defense services. Several common international projects have been realized with success. The instrumentation has been continuously upgraded, the installations quality improved as well as the data transmission efficiency. In the 2013 ARSO, DMG, OGS and ZAMG decided to name the cooperative network "Central and Eastern European Earthquake Research Network - CE3RN". The national/regional seismic networks actually involved in the CE3RN network are: • Austrian national BB network (ZAMG - OE) • Friuli Veneto SP network (OGS - FV) • Friuli VG

    Full Text Available In 1935 the Venice Biennale organized an atypical exhibition commemorating its 40th anniversary. The “Mostra dei Quarant’anni” was mostly devoted to art from the Triveneto. Yet four rooms showed works by European artists who had exhibited in the Biennale, and were part of the collections of the Gallerie d’Arte Moderna in Rome and Venice. The show refl ected on the evolution of modern art and of the Biennale between 1895 and 1935, exemplifying the aesthetic criteria of Italian public collections at the time. It included many artists that are still considered part of the modernist canon but most of them are now all but forgotten. It thus represents an optimal case study to analyze renegotiations of the artistic canon. Furthermore, the “Mostra” played a key role in re-defi ning the international role of Venice within fascist artistic organization. As the “Mostra” took place in the gap year between two Biennales and received little support from governmental institutions, it is generally overlooked in the literature on the period. Yet, on the basis of unpublished archival documentation and of the digital reconstruction of these rooms, this paper argues that the “Mostra dei Quarant’anni” is crucial for our understanding of the history of the Biennale and of the cultural policies of the fascist state. Nel 1935 la Biennale di Venezia ha organizzato una mostra atipica per commemorare il proprio 40° anniversario. La “Mostra dei Quarant’anni” era in gran parte dedicata all’arte dal Triveneto. Eppure quattro sale espongono opere di artisti europei che furono in mostra alla Biennale, e divennero parte delle collezioni della galleria d’Arte Moderna di Roma e Venezia. La Mostra rifl ette sull’evoluzione dell’arte moderna e della Biennale tra il 1895 e il 1935, esemplifi cando i criteri estetici adottati a quell’epoca in collezioni pubbliche italiane. Vengono esposti molti artisti ancora considerati parte del canone

    Full Text Available Teresa Paolucci,* Vincenzo Maria Saraceni, Giulia Piccinini* Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Unit, Azienda Policlinico Umberto I, Rome, Italy *These authors contributed equally to this work Abstract: Osteoporosis (OP is a pathological condition that manifests clinically as pain, fractures, and physical disability, resulting in the loss of independence and the need for long-term care. Chronic pain is a multidimensional experience with sensory, affective, and cognitive aspects. Age can affect each of these dimensions and the pain that is experienced. In OP, chronic pain appears to have sensory characteristics and properties of nociceptive and neuropathic pain. Its evaluation and treatment thus require a holistic approach that focuses on the specific characteristics of this population. Pain management must therefore include pharmacological approaches, physiotherapy interventions, educational measures, and, in rare cases, surgical treatment. Most rehabilitative treatments in the management of patients with OP do not evaluate pain or physical function, and there is no consensus on the effects of rehabilitation therapy on back pain or quality of life in women with OP. Pharmacological treatment of pain in patients with OP is usually insufficient. The management of chronic pain in patients with OP is complicated with regard to its diagnosis, the search for reversible secondary causes, the efficacy and duration of oral bisphosphonates, and the function of calcium and vitamin D. The aim of this review is to discuss the most appropriate solutions in the management of chronic pain in OP. Keywords: physical therapy, exercise, pharmacological treatment, posture and balance

    Last month, the Vacuum, Surfaces and Coatings (VSC) group was tasked with an unusually delicate operation in the LHCb experiment cavern: removing the LHC beam pipe while keeping the sensitive Vertex Locator vacuum vessel (VELO) completely isolated from the action.   The VSC group seal off the VELO beam pipe with a flange. Image: Gloria Corti. LHCb’s VELO detector is one of the crown jewels of the experiment. With detector elements surrounded by a vacuum, it gets as close as 5 cm from the beam. Fantastic for physics, but difficult for all-important access. “Because of the sensitivity of the VELO detector and its proximity to the beam, the collaboration decided not to bake (see box) its portion of the beam pipe,” says Giulia Lanza (TE-VSC-LBV), the expert in charge of the beam vacuum operation. “Our group was therefore asked to remove the rest of the LHC beam pipe while keeping the VELO portion of the pipe completely isolated.

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available My concern for transvestite parts stems from the Shakespearean drama conventions in which all female roles were performed by young men and apprentice boys for decency’s sake. Bellini and Felice Romani, his librettist, were certainly not influenced by the English bard, but by a common source, book 4 of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, when they composed the score and lyrics of their opera in the 1820s. According to baroque Italian operatic conventions, the part of the lover should have been performed by a castrato so that his voice could merge perfectly with that of the soprano heroine. However Bellini preferred a female singer, Giuditta Grisi, who specialised in a repertoire of young male lovers called musico, to play against her own sister, Giulia, as Julietta. Both women met with great success as appears from contemporary reviews, which praise their vocal performances but ignore the change from the tradition of the castrato, as well as the physicality of the show. An analysis of some photographs from a series of recent productions of the opera sheds some light on this visual dimension and on the choices made by several stage directors in their own approach to the opera.

  18. Materials by design: methodological developments in the calculation of excited-state properties

    Science.gov (United States)

    Govoni, Marco

    Density functional theory (DFT) is one of the main tools used in first principle simulations of materials; however several of the current approximations of exchange and correlation functionals do not provide the level of accuracy required for predictive calculations of excited state properties. The application to heterogeneous systems of more accurate post-DFT approaches such as Many-Body Perturbation Theory (MBPT) - for example to nanostructured, disordered, and defective materials - has been hindered by high computational costs. In this talk recent methodological developments in MBPT calculations will be discussed, as recently implemented in the open source code WEST, which efficiently exploits HPC architectures. Results using a formulation that does not require the explicit calculation of virtual states, nor the storage and inversion of large dielectric matrices will be presented; these results include quasi particle energies for systems with thousands of electrons and encompass the electronic structure of aqueous solutions, spin defects in insulators, and benchmarks for molecules and solids containing heavy elements. Simplifications of MBPT calculations based on the use of static response properties, such as dielectric-dependent hybrid functionals, will also be discussed.

We will then focus on the gauge group of QCD and derive the Casimirs CF and CA and some useful color identities. Tuesday 13 - Modern QCD - Lecture 2 We will start discussing the matter content of the theory and revisit the experimental measurements that led to the discovery of quarks. We will then consider a classic QCD observable, the R-ratio, and use it to illustrate the appearance of UV divergences and the need to renormalize the coupling constant of QCD. We will then discuss asymptotic freedom and confinement. Finally, we will examine a case where soft and collinear infrared divergences appear, will discuss the soft approximation in QCD ...

    Full Text Available Two new Megalancosaurus specimens collected from the Norian (Late Triassic Calcare di Zorzino (Zorzino Limestone Formation (Bergamo, Lombardy, Northern Italy, and from the coeval Dolomia di Forni (Forni Dolostone Formation (Udine, Friuli, North-eastern Italy improve our knowledge of skeletal anatomy and mode of life of this genus. Morphology of observable skull elements and cervical vertebrae in one of the new specimens shows some resemblance to the possible Triassic bird Protoavis, while the postcranial skeleton of Megalancosaurus is completely non-avian. This may suggest that either Megalancosaurus and Protoavis developed a similar neck structure as a response to the same functional requirement, or that part of the disarticulated material ascribed to Protoavis may indeed belong to a Megalancosaurus-like reptile. Megalancosaurus shows a very high adaptation to arboreal life and a peculiar feeding strategy. Recent suggestions that Megalancosaurus may have been a glider and a possible model for bird ancestry are discussed. Some skeletal features of Megalancosaurus may indeed be interpreted as gliding adaptation, but evidence is weak, and if this reptile was a glider, however, its gliding bauplan should have been completely different from the one usually accepted for bird ancestors, showing instead more morphological similarities with gliding squirrels, phalangeriids and putative ancestors of bats and pterosaurs (according to a non cursorial model for these latter.

    1977-09-30

    This paper gives an in-depth discussion on the various methodologies currently available to predict the near-field ground motion from an earthquake. The limitations of the various methods are discussed in some detail in light of recently available data. It is shown that, (at least for California earthquakes) for an earthquake with a given magnitude a wide variation in the peak ground motion can occur. The change in the spectral content of the ground motion is given as a function of earthquake magnitude and peak ground acceleration. It is shown that the large g values associated with small earthquakes are relatively unimportant in the design provided the structures have a modest amount of ductility. Data recently obtained from the Friuli earthquake are also examined. Although not all the geophysical data are currently available, the provisional conclusion is reached that the relation between the strong ground motion from this earthquake and its source parameters is the same as for the western United States.

  3. GRAVITY-FLOW DEPOSITS IN THE TOARCIAN PERBLA FORMATION (SLOVENIAN BASIN, NW SLOVENIA

    Full Text Available The Perbla Formation represents typical Toarcian clay-rich pelagic sediment of the southern Tethyan passive continental margin. It was deposited in the Slovenian Basin, located in present-day western Slovenia. During the Early Jurassic the basin was surrounded by the Dinaric (Friuli Carbonate Platform to the south and by the Julian Carbonate Platform to the north. Today, the transitional areas between the platforms and basin are not preserved due to intense Cainozoic thrusting and erosion, with the only record of the evolution of these areas stored in gravity-flow deposits of the Perbla Formation. Coarser turbidites were deposited on the margins of the basin, with other types of gravity-flow deposits, observed mainly in the central part of the basin. These intercalations reflect regionally recognized events that characterized the sedimentary evolution of western Slovenia at the end of the Early Jurassic. Slumps that occasionally developed into debris-flows reflect uneven sea-bottom palaeotopography that originated during a pre- to early-Toarcian phase of accelerated subsidence. The early Toarcian transgression caused drowning of the adjacent carbonate platforms, an event reflected in the composition of coarser turbidites which consist almost exclusively of echinoderm fragments and thin-shelled bivalves. These turbidites originated from drowned platform margins and/or slopes and were subsequently redeposited in proximal parts of the basin. 

  4. Effects of a Group of High-Rise Structures on Ground Motions under Seismic Excitation

    Full Text Available A three-dimensional simulation was created to determine the seismic performance of coupled systems with a group of up to 100 pile-high-rise structures resting on soil layers using system modal, harmonic, and time domain analysis. The results demonstrated that the existence of a structural group mitigates the structural responses with respect to the single-structure-soil interaction (SSI and results in significantly nonuniform ground seismic motions. Due to the influence of a structural group, adjacent structures can exhibit fully alternating mechanical behavior, and buildings in the urban fringe are subjected to stronger shaking than downtown buildings. The overall trend of the influence of structural groups is that ground motions are lessened inside an urban area, and ground motions at the locations between structures differ from those at the locations of the structures. Moreover, the effective distance of a structural group on ground motions is associated with the urban width. Less distance between structures enhances the interaction effect. In addition, the soil properties can greatly influence the system’s seismic responses and can even completely change the effect trends. The results in our paper are consistent with the phenomena observed in the Mexico City earthquake and the 1976 earthquake in Friuli, Italy.

    The renowned Vitis vinifera L. cultivar "Glera" (Magnoliopsida Vitaceae) has been grown for hundreds of years in the Italian regions of Veneto and Friuli to produce the sparkling Prosecco wine, with controlled designation of origin (DOC). We evaluated the relationship among the concentrations of rare earth elements (REE) in soil and in "Glera" grape berries in vineyards belonging to five different localities in the Veneto alluvial plain, all included in the DOC area of Prosecco. The concentration of REE in samples of soil and juice or solid residues of grape berries was determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), and the index of bioaccumulation was calculated to define the specific assimilation of these elements from soil to grape berries. The concentration of REE in soil samples allowed an identification of each locality examined, and REE were mostly detected in solid grape berry residues in comparison to juice. These data may be useful to associate REE distribution in soil and grape berries to a specific geographical origin, in order to prevent fraudulent use of wine denomination labels.

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available A barrage of criticism has been levelled against the Venice Biennale’s national pavilion structure in recent decades, chiefly accusing it of anachronism on account of its western biases. Yet the tide has begun to turn, making much of this criticism sound a little worn-out. As this event increasingly attracts debuting ‘non-western’ national exhibitors each year, its pavilion structure event is beginning to be reassessed. Haiti was one such debutant at the 54th edition of La Biennale di Venezia held in 2011. This article will explore in detail the debates raised by Haiti’s national pavilion, particularly as they related to the central exhibition theme of ILLUMInations selected by the International Art Exhibition Director for 2011, Bice Curiger. In doing so this piece will consider both: how the national pavilion structure at the Venice Biennale was challenged, and our wider understanding of it deepened, by Haiti’s participation; and what Venice’s national pavilion structure might be able to offer a post-colonial, ‘third-world’ nation like Haiti.

Focalizzando la nostra attenzione sul processo editoriale sottostante la creazione dell’atlante, analizziamo che tipo di contatti esistevano tra i Blaeu e i loro partner italiani. Il ruolo di Pieter Blaeu, figlio di Joan, fu essenziale per la fortuna dell’atlante urbano, in particolare per gli interventi culturali da lui svolti tra le parti italiane e olandesi coinvolte nel progetto. I Blaeu hanno voluto offrire ai loro lettori informazioni approfondite sulla penisola italiana attraverso testi e immagini che avevano − per quanto possibile − collezionato e ricevuto dai loro corrispondenti italiani. È stato grazie ai vari contributi offerti da contatti internazionali come lo scrittore Vincenzo Armanni, o il libraio Andries Fries, attivo tra Amsterdam e Venezia, che Joan e Pieter Blaeu hanno potuto ampliare il materiale già pubblicato in precedenza, in special modo il Civitates Orbis Terrarum (Braun e Hogenberg, 1572.

As a general rule, the vehicle fleets have been renewed with a reduction of old-emission-standard vehicles. Italian cities reported a considerable delay in the development of underground and tram systems, and suburban rail networks, compared to other European urban areas. Regarding other aspects of urban mobility (supply/demand for public transport, low traffic and pedestrian zones, bike paths, car and bike sharing), this survey highlighted a great heterogeneity among Italian cities. differences between Italian cities are partly explained by structural and cultural features and also by local governance, specifically the political capability to design and adopt effective policies concerning urban transportation systems and their environmental impact. Various and fragmented initiatives are signs that Italy has not formulated a comprehensive and integrated strategy about sustainable mobility in urban areas yet.

    Full Text Available Resumo Ao analisar uma extensa base de dados sobre o mercado brasileiro de seguros de automóveis, encontramos um fato estilizado: a frequência de sinistros declarados é maior nos primeiros meses de vigência contratual. Para explicá-lo, propomos uma versão modicada do modelo de Venezia e Levy (1980, na qual demonstramos que a pseudofranquia é menor no início do contrato. A pseudofranquia é um valor não observável, superior à franquia estipulada em contrato, até o qual o segurado tem incentivo a não declarar suas perdas. Dado que a pseudofranquia é menor no início do contrato, o modelo prevê que haverá uma frequência maior de perdas (de menor valor sendo declaradas neste período. Para testar esta previsão, regredimos o logaritmo das indenizações contra dummies de tempo, e obtivemos que no primeiro trimestre de vigência o valor médio das perdas declaradas é aproximadamente 2,21% menor em relação ao segundo trimestre. Esta informação pode ser utilizada pelas seguradoras para ajustar o valor das franquias nos primeiros meses dos contratos a fim de reduzir suas taxas de sinistralidade.

    Full Text Available This contribution examines the politics of ancient Italian states with regards to collective property by taking as a starting point two recent monographs on this argument (Alessandro Dani’s work on the state of Siena in Medicean times and Stefano Barbacetto’s work on the Venetian Republic between the 15th and 18th centuries. Whilst the Medicis’initiatives in this sphere were of a limited nature, as from the mid-fifteenth century the Venetian signoria conducted ambitious interventions aimed at acquiring significant shares and reclaiming sovereignty over the common property of the subjected territories. Despite the differences in the approaches adopted, in early modern times central governments increasingly gain interest in collective resources.A partire dalle lettura di due recenti monografie sull’argomento (i lavori di Alessandro Dani sullo Stato di Siena in epoca medicea e di Stefano Barbacetto sulla Repubblica di Venezia fra XV e XVIII secolo, il contributo prende in esame le politiche degli antichi stati italiani sulle proprietà collettive. Mentre i Medici attuarono interventi limitati in tale settore, sin dalla seconda metà del Quattrocento la Signoria veneta dispiegò ambiziose iniziative intese a rivendicare la sovranità sulle comunanze dei territori soggetti e a incamerarne significative quote. Pur con approcci differenti, in età moderna emerge un crescente interesse dei governi centrali per gli usi civici.

    Full Text Available This essay deals with a singular construction built by Giovanni Battista Caretti in the garden of Villa Torlonia in Rome, between 1800 and 1830. The so-called “ruin of nymphaeum”, the only surviving part of a composite system of ruins, built for Alessandro Torlonia, has not, until now, been the object of any exhaustive study which could clarify historic and design aspects, and furthermore, characterize this particular class of folies. The essay analyses the building with the help of accurate measurements. A lack of archival documents did not prevent the author proposing some interesting theses on the method of construction and the possible models of reference, also in relation to the antiquarian culture of the architect (who was also the architect of the Gallery of Ercole and Lira in the destroyed Palazzo Torlonia in piazza Venezia. Particular attention is paid to the spolia which were re-used in the ruin, among which, a part from the original complex of statues (classified by Carlo Gasparri and now displayed in the museum of the Casino dei Principi, two large fragments of a Domitian cornice, and a group of 15th century consoles, probably from the studio of Andrea Bregno, all stand out. The specific characteristics of these fragments suggest that they originate from the antiques collection of the Colonna family, a collection, the importance of which is documented by some previously unknown archival documents cited in the essay.

No markers are available to predict which patients may benefit from local treatment after induction. This exploratory study aims to assess the feasibility and the activity of multimodality treatment, including triple-agent chemotherapy followed by radical surgery and/or radiotherapy in locally advanced NSCLCs. Methods: We retrospectively collected data from locally advanced NSCLCs treated with induction chemotherapy with carboplatin (area under the curve 6, d [day]1, paclitaxel (200 mg/m2, d1, and gemcitabine (1,000 mg/m2 d1, 8 for three to four courses, followed by radical surgery and/or radiotherapy. We analyzed radiological response and toxicity. Estimated progression-free survival (PFS and overall survival (OS were correlated to response, surgery, and clinical features. Results: In all, 58 NSCLCs were included in the study: 40 staged as IIIA, 18 as IIIB (according to TNM Classification of Malignant Tumors–7th edition staging system. A total of 36 (62% patients achieved partial response (PR, and six (10% progressions were recorded. Grade 3–4 hematological toxicity was observed in 36 (62% cases. After chemotherapy, 37 (64% patients underwent surgery

That noxious influence may be reflected by circulating enzyme levels, a correlate of cardiovascular risk factors, and a predictor of incident events. To evaluate this hypothesis, we tested the association between circulating GGT and common carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT, a surrogate index of systemic atherosclerotic involvement, in a large and well-characterized group of patients at risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD.Patients: This study analyzed 548 patients with hypertension and/or diabetes and a widely prevalent history of CVD. Subjects with known hepatic disease and abnormal GGT values were excluded.Methods: CIMT (B-mode ultrasonography values were the mean of four far-wall measurements at both common carotids. Metabolic syndrome (MetS was diagnosed according to National Cholesterol Education Program-Adult Treatment Panel III criteria. Due to inherent sex-related differences in GGT levels, the data were analyzed separately in males and females in samples dichotomized by the median.Results: The age-adjusted CIMT values did not differ by GGT levels in males or females. In contrast, the carotid wall was consistently thicker in patients with a history of CVD and MetS independent of age and concurrent GGT values. In both sexes, GGT was associated with key components of the MetS such as triglycerides, fasting plasma glucose, and body mass index.Conclusion: The data collected in this mixed group of hypertensive and/or diabetic patients with widely prevalent history of CVD do not support the concept of a direct pathophysiological link between GGT levels within reference limits and atherosclerotic involvement.Keywords: gamma

Sensory symptoms may be prominent, often exhibiting features consistent with neuropathic pain. Iron deficiency and genetic factors are implicated in RLS causation in most patients. The pathogenetic model of impaired circadian dopaminergic modulation of sensorimotor integration circuitry at the spinal level is fitting with the co-occurrence of movement disorders, sensory symptoms, and sleep disruption in RLS. Accordingly, levodopa and dopamine agonists are effective for RLS symptoms, which compensate for the impaired descending control by diencephalo-spinal dopa(minergic pathway. Dopamine agonists are usually indicated as the first-line therapy, but their use in long-term treatment is often complicated by augmentation and impulse control disorder, thus alpha-2-delta ligands also are now considered the first line of treatment. It has been recognized that endogenous opioid system is also involved in the mechanisms generating RLS, possibly through an impaired modulation of pain pathways. Opioids can be considered as an alternative therapy, particularly in patients with augmentation and/or refractory to other treatments. Recently introduced prolonged-release oxycodone–naloxone was efficacious for short-term treatment of patients with severe RLS inadequately controlled with previous treatment. It will be important to assess whether opioids, as well as other drugs, are especially effective in definite RLS subtypes such as the painful phenotype. Keywords: small fiber neuropathy

Nanoparticles containing noscapine were prepared from these biodegradable and biocompatible copolymers using the nanoprecipitation method. The prepared nanoparticles were characterized for size and drug entrapment efficiency, and their morphology and size were checked by transmission electron microscopy imaging. Artificial neural networks were constructed and tested for their ability to predict particle size and entrapment efficiency of noscapine within the formed nanoparticles using different factors utilized in the preparation step, namely polymer molecular weight, ratio of polymer to drug, and number of blocks that make up the polymer. Using these networks, it was found that the polymer molecular weight has the greatest effect on particle size. On the other hand, polymer to drug ratio was found to be the most influential factor on drug entrapment efficiency. This study demonstrated the ability of artificial neural networks to predict not only the particle size of the formed nanoparticles but also the drug entrapment efficiency. This may have a great impact on the design of polyethylene glycol and polylactide-based copolymers, and can be used to customize the required target formulations.

During the last decades, the survival has only improved significantly for lung cancer patients who have tumors harboring a driver mutation. Therefore, there is a clear unmet need for effective therapies for patients with no mutation. Immunotherapy has emerged as an effective treatment for different cancer types. Nivolumab, a monoclonal inhibitory antibody against PD-1 receptor, can prolong survival of NSCLC patients, with a manageable toxicity profile. In two Phase III trials, nivolumab was compared to docetaxel in patients with, respectively, squamous (CheckMate 017 and non-squamous NSCLC (CheckMate 057. In both trials, nivolumab significantly reduced the risk of death compared to docetaxel (41% and 27% lower risk of death for squamous and non-squamous NSCLC, respectively. Therefore, nivolumab has been approved in the US and in Europe as second-line treatment for advanced NSCLC. Unfortunately, accurate predictive factors for patient selection are lacking, making it difficult to decide who will benefit and who will not. Currently, there are many ongoing trials that evaluate the efficacy of nivolumab in different settings and in combination with other agents. This paper reviews the present literature about the role of nivolumab in the treatment of NSCLC. Particular attention has been given to efficacy studies, toxicity profile, and current and emerging predictive factors.

    Western Slovenia and North-eastern Italy are areas of medium rate seismicity with rare historic earthquakes of higher magnitudes. From mainly reverse component faulting in north-western part of the region where 1976 Friuli earthquakes took place, tectonic regime changes to mostly strike-slip faulting in the Dinaric region, continuing towards southeast. In the northern part of the Idrija fault system, which represent the broader Dinaric strike-slip system there were two strong earthquakes in the recent times - Mw=5.6 1998 and Mw=5.2 2004 earthquakes. Further to the south, along the Idrija fault system, Idrija fault is the causative fault of 1511 Mw=6.8 earthquake. The southeastern most part of the Idrija fault system produced a Mw=5.2 earthquake in 1926 and few historic Mw>4 earthquakes. Since 2004 Mw=5.2 earthquake, no stronger earthquakes were recorded in the region covered by dense seismic network. Seismicity is mostly concentrated in Friuli region and north-western part of Idrija fault system - mostly on the Ravne fault which is the causative fault for the 1998 and 2004 earthquakes. In the central part of the fault system no strong or moderate earthquakes were recorded, except of an earthquake along the Idrija fault in 2014 of magnitude 3.4. Low magnitude background seismicity is burst like with no apparent temporal or spatial distribution. Seismicity of the southern part of Idrija fault system is again a bit higher than in the central part of the fault system with earthquakes up to Mw=4.4 that happened in 2014. In this study, detailed analysis of the seismicity is performed with manual relocation of the seismicity in the period between 2006 and 2016. With manual inspection of the waveform data, slight temporal clustering of seismicity is observed. We use a template algorithm method to increase the detection rate of the seismicity. Templates of seismicity in the north-western and south-eastern part of Idrija fault system are created. The continuous waveform data

    The pollution due to some herbicides which was used in flood plains and karst areas of various regions in the world is causing major problems in supplying drinking water from surface water bodies and aquifers. Pesticides and herbicides are widely used in agriculture, vineyards, industry and public hygiene. They are spread on soil surface, in air, into deep soil causing problems in surface water bodies and aquifers. In Italy the interest of presence of pesticides in water resources began around 1980 after episodes of drinking water contamination due to some herbicides and atrazine (ATR). After years away from the ban on the use of atrazine (use prohibition in the 90's), its degradation products are still present in groundwater of large areas of the plains of Nord Italy (Bottoni et al.,2013). Intensive use of triazines has become harmful for the local population that live in the Veneto-Friuli plain where the high gravels permeability of alluvial fans allowed to the widespread diffusion of triazines and related metabolites. The main mechanism of atrazine action in soil is microbial degradation, the kinetics of these products is closely connected with the availability of nitrates in the soil. The half-life of atrazine is 30-180 days but its disintegration is blocked by nitrates presence (Jones et al 1982). ATR is trapped in cohesive levels as peat and silty clay soils and periodically released by the interaction water sediment. Artificial recharge in areas with highly permeable aquifers allows to realize qualitative and quantitative regeneration because water low in nitrates and Dissolved Oxygen can promote the biological and chemical disintegration of pesticides such as atrazine and its metabolites. A case study is represented by the Friuli plain, near the Tagliamento river. Based on the WARBO project data that has applied artificial recharge in Mereto di Tomba test site where the dissolved nitrate content of water in some cases exceed the 50 mg/L limit according to

    Il tasso dei suicidi viene considerato un importante indicatore dello stato di salute di una collettività. Osservando le caratteristiche e le forme adottate nella realizzazione dell’insano gesto, è possibile delineare un quadro delle principali aree a rischio, raccogliendo informazioni utili a comprendere meglio l’atto suicidiario. Sulla base di queste premesse utilizzando i dati ISTAT abbiamo condotto un’analisi retrospettiva riguardante gli anni 1993- 2002. Abbiamo considerato genere, età, modalità, movente.

    È stato effettuato un confronto fra le diverse regioni: nord, centro e sud calcolando il PYLL, il tasso x 100.000 abitanti, il tasso percentuale. Nel periodo considerato il fenomeno è aumentato con lenta e sistematica progressione. A livello regionale è la Lombardia a registrare il maggior numero di casi (17,5%, seguita dal Piemonte (10,8%, dall’Emilia Romagna (9,5% e dal Veneto (8,6%, osservando però i tassi di suicidio per 100 mila abitanti è il Friuli a presentare il tasso più elevato (13,8, seguito dall’Umbria (12 e dalla Liguria (11,4.

    Interessante è la differenza tra il tasso di suicidi delle regioni del Nord rispetto a quelle del Centro e del Sud: il Nord presenta un tasso superiore a quello medio nazionale (9,3 contrariamente al Sud (5,1. La fascia di età più colpita è quella 18-30 anni per le donne e 31-45 per gli uomini.

  18. Analysis of the relationship between landslides size distribution and earthquake source area

    The spatial distribution of earthquake induced landslides around the seismogenetic source has been analysed to better understand the triggering of landslides in seismic areas and to forecast the maximum distance at which an earthquake, with a certain magnitude, can induce landslides (e.g Keefer, 1984). However, when applying such approaches to old earthquakes (e.g 1929 Buller and 1968 Iningahua earthquakes New Zealand; Parker, 2013; 1976 Friuli earthquake, Italy) one should be concerned about the undersampling of smaller landslides which can be cancelled by erosion and landscape evolution. For this reason, it is important to characterize carefully the relationship between landslide area and number with distance from the source, but also the size distribution of landslides as a function of distance from the source. In this paper, we analyse the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake landslide inventory (Xu et al, 2013). The earthquake triggered more than 197,000 landslides of different type, including rock avalanches, rockfalls, translational and rotational slides, lateral spreads and derbies flows. First, we calculated the landslide intensity (number of landslides per unit area) and spatial density (landslide area per unit area) as a function of distance from the source area of the earthquake. Then, we developed magnitude frequency curves (MFC) for different distances from the source area. Comparing these curves, we can describe the relation between the distance and the frequency density of landslide in seismic area. Keefer D K (1984) Landslides caused by earthquakes.

    2009-04-01

    Advanced Differential SAR interferometry (A-DInSAR) is a technique monitoring large-coverage surface deformations using a stack of interferograms generated from several complex SLC SAR images, acquired over the same target area at different times. In this work are described the results of a procedure to calculate terrain motion velocity on highly correlated pixels (E. Biescas, M. Crosetto, M. Agudo, O. Monserrat e B. Crippa: Two Radar Interferometric Approaches to Monitor Slow and Fast Land Deformation, 2007) in two area Gemona - Friuli, Northern Italy, Pollino - Calabria, Southern Italy, and, furthermore, are presented some consideration, based on successful examples of the present analysis. The choice of these pixels whose displacement velocity is calculated depends on the dispersion index value (DA) or using coherence values along the stack interferograms. A-DInSAR technique allows to obtain highly reliable velocity values of the vertical displacement. These values concern the movement of minimum surfaces of about 80m2 at the maximum resolution and the minimum velocity that can be recognized is of the order of mm/y. Because of the high versatility of the technology, because of the large dimensions of the area that can be analyzed (of about 10000Km2) and because of the high precision and reliability of the results obtained, we think it is possible to exploit radar interferometry to obtain some important information about the structural context of the studied area, otherwise very difficult to recognize. Therefore we propose radar interferometry as a valid investigation tool whose results must be considered as an important integration of the data collected in fieldworks.

    We determine geometry and distribution of seismic strain in Italy, and surrounding regions, by means of seismological information, and compare results with geodetic data. We use data from the Harvard CMT Catalog, mostly supplemented by the INGV-Harvard European-Mediterranean Regional Centroid Moment Tensor (RCMT) Catalog (http://www.ingv.it/seismolgo/RCMT), including solutions for moderate-magnitude earthquakes (4.5encloses about 400 focal solutions for events occurred between 1997 and 2002, besides other significant events (e.g. the Friuli, Northern Italy, 1976 seismic sequence). We believe this to be the most complete dataset, based on instrumental data, for the last 25 years of seismic activity of the study region. Only crustal events are considered. The method used is the Kostrov summation, applied on a regular grid. We thus obtain the cumulative moment tensor, representative of the geometry of deformation. Its distribution shows NE-SW extension along the Apennines, and the compression field (rotating from NE-SW to NNE-SSW) that affects the mountain chains along the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea and the Eastern Alps. The geometry of deformation also exhibits other intriguing trends, such as compression along the Southern Tyrrhenian, changing to strike-slip eastward, and turning to extension passing trough the Aeolian Islands and the Messina Strait. We also note the transition from compression in the outer Northern Apennines to transcurrent style in the outer Southern Apennines. Being this region a low strain rate area, a correct evaluation of strain amount requires to merge the instrumental dataset with the historical seismic moment released, as obtained from catalogs. The hypocentral distribution is taken into account to evaluate the depth of the brittle layer. Our results are compared with geodetic data recently obtained analysing more than 10 years of GPS observations collected by more than 130 stations. Significant similarity is found, especially as

  1. The Town Effect: Dynamic Interaction between a Group of Structures and Waves in the Ground

    In a conventional approach, the mechanical behaviour of a structure subjected to seismic or blast waves is treated separately from its surroundings, and in many cases, the dynamic coupling effect between multiple structures and the waves propagating in the ground is disregarded. However, if many structures are built densely in a developed urban area, this dynamic interaction may not become negligible. The first purpose of this contribution is to briefly show the effect of multiple interactions between waves and surface buildings in a town. The analysis is based on a recently developed, fully coupled, rigorous mathematical study, and for simplicity, each building in the town is represented by a rigid foundation, a mass at the top and an elastic spring that connects the foundation and mass. The buildings stand at regular spatial intervals on a linear elastic half-space and are subjected to two-dimensional anti-plane vibrations. It is found that the buildings in this model significantly interact with each other through the elastic ground, and the resonant (eigen) frequencies of the collective system (buildings or town) become lower than that of a single building with the same rigid foundation. This phenomenon may be called the “town effect” or “city effect.” Then, second, it is shown that the actual, unique structural damage pattern caused by the 1976 Friuli, Italy, earthquake may better be explained by this “town effect,” rather than by investigating the seismic performance of each damaged building individually. The results suggest that it may also be possible to evaluate the physical characteristics of incident seismic/blast waves “inversely” from the damage patterns induced to structures by the waves.

    Full Text Available L’attività di Antonio Rimpatta, pittore bolognese attivo ad inizio ‘500, è stata ricostruita negli ultimi 60 anni secondo ipotesi differenti. Il corpus di dipinti riunito da Zeri è stato in alcuni casi integrato da quelli già attribuiti all’anonimo Maestro della Sacra conversazione Setmani, mentre altre volte l’accorpamento è avvenuto con il frate Antonio da Bologna già menzionato da Vasari. Gli studi più recenti tendono a unificare i tre gruppi sotto il nome di Rimpatta, ma questa soluzione sembra ignorare alcuni problemi significativi. In questo contributo vengono rilette alcune principali opere del presunto catalogo di Rimpatta, evidenziando gli scarti troppo evidenti, soprattutto a livello di cultura figurativa. Si conferma la coincidenza Rimpatta/frate Antonio da Bologna: essa è caratterizzata da un linguaggio principalmente peruginesco e centro-italiano, con alcuni rimandi a Boltraffio (come dimostra il San Sebastiano nella Walters Art Gallery di Baltimore. Si vuole invece tenere separato l’autore del gruppo Setmani. Questo maestro si rivela assai più rilevante, in grado di realizzare capolavori aggiornati sulla più moderna pittura nata tra Milano e Venezia a cavallo tra XV e XVI secolo. L’evidente rapporto tra Rimpatta e il Maestro Setmani potrebbe allora spiegarsi non con la loro coincidenza, ma con una collaborazione tra i due pittori; tale incontro potrebbe immaginarsi a Bologna verso il 1500, subito dopo la nascita di opere come la pala Casio di Boltraffio o la pala Scarani del Perugino.

    The Second Military Survey was carried out between 1806 and 1869 in the continuously changing territory of the Habsburg Empire. More than 4000 tiles of the 1:28,800 scale survey sheets cover the Empire, which was the second in territorial extents in Europe after Russia. In the terms of the cartography, the Empire has been divided into eight zones; each zones had its own Cassini-type projection with a center at a geodetically defined fundamental point. The points were the following: - Wien-Stephansdom (valid for Lower and Upper Austria, Hungary, Dalmacy, Moravia and Vorarlberg; latitude=48,20910N; longitude=16,37655E on local datum). - Gusterberg (valid for Bohemia; latitude=48,03903N; longitude=14,13976E). - Schöcklberg (valid for Styria; latitude=47,19899N; longitude=15,46902E). - Krimberg (valid for Illyria and Coastal Land; latitude=45,92903N; longitude=14,47423E). - Löwenberg (valid for Galizia and Bukovina; latitude=49,84889N; longitude=24,04639E). - Hermannstadt (valid for Transylvania; latitude=45,84031N; longitude=24,11297). - Ivanić (valid for Croatia; latitude=45,73924N; longitude=16,42309). - Milano, Duomo San Salvatore (valid for Lombardy, Venezia, Parma and Modena; latitude=45,45944N; longitude=9,18757E) - a simulated fundametal point for Tyrol and Salzburg, several hundred miles north of the territories.

  7. [The Vitruvian Man: an anatomical drawing for proportions by Leonardo Da Vinci].

    Le Floch-Prigent, P

    2008-12-01

    The aim of the study was to find out and to analyse the text by Vitruvius which inspired the famous drawing by Leonardo da Vinci (circa 1490) kept in the Galleria dell'Accademia, in Venezia, Italy: the man inscribed in one circle and in one square. The book "de Architectura" by Vitruvius Marcus Pollio was printed several times since the Renaissance when both the roman architecture of antiquity and this text became very popular. From a French translation by Claude Perrault in 1864, it became easy to find a French translation with the original text in Latin (Paris, 2003, Les Belles Lettres, French text by Pierre Gros). The drawing by Leonardo da Vinci illustrates with great accuracy and fidelity the quotation of Vitruvius (with the exception of two of the 12 main relationships). The genius of Leonardo da Vinci was to keep only one trunk, head and neck for two pairs of limbs: scapular and pelvic; to make the circle tangent to the lower edge of the square; to adjust a few features of the quotation for the equilibrium of the whole figure; and of course to bring his incredible skill as a drawer (one of the best of his century). The drawing was made on a sheet of paper 344x245mm, in black ink which became dark brown with time; several lines complete the figure above and below; a short caption and a horizontal scale appear just under the drawing. The celebrity of the drawing, a symbol of the Renaissance, of the equilibrium of man and mankind, of the universality of the artists and intellectuals of the time (Humanism) made it iconic and it has been constantly reproduced and adapted especially for advertisement and logos, not only in the medical field.

The two varieties considered for evaluation are the Italian variety of Venice, Madrid and the Spanish variety. Both have already been studied in the past, however, as far as I know, this is the first study that systematically puts compared in a comprehensive way. This description of the transfer is strongest fundamental in education for the teachers involved in teaching Italian as a foreign language are aware of the fact that the L1 prosodic features are very strong and difficult subject to conscious control of the speaker. In this sense it will be important to take into account when they start to offer models of orality to spanish speakers.In questo lavoro ci proponiamo presentare i tratti prosodici caratteristici delle interrogative polari degli spagnoli che hanno imparato l’italiano come lingua straniera, in particolar modo ci concentremo sui transfer dalla L1 verso la L2. Le due varietà prese in considerazione per l’analisi sono la varietà italiana di Venezia, e la varietà spagnola di Madrid. Entrambe sono già state studiate in passato, tuttavia, per quanto mi è dato sapere, questa è la prima ricerca che le mette sistematicamente a confronto in modo esaustivo. Questa descrizione dei transfer più resistenti è fondamentale in ambito educativo affinché i docenti che si occupano d’insegnamento dell’italiano come lingua straniera siano consapevoli del fatto che i tratti prosodici della L1 sono molto resistenti e difficilmente sottoposti al controllo consapevole del parlante. In questo senso sarà fondamentale prenderli in considerazione quando inizieranno a offrire modelli di oralità ai parlanti spagnoli.

One hundred twenty-eight weaned piglets weighing 8.8 ±1.27 kg live weight were randomly assigned to 4 groups of 32 animals each (16 castrated males and 16 females. Bt corn (line MON810 and isogenic corn were produced at two farms located in the Lodi and Venezia provinces (northern Italy. Bt corn had the same chemical composition as the isogenic corn but a lower content of fumonisin B1 (FB1. The experimental period (35 days was divided into two phases: 0-14 d and 15-35 d. There was no significant difference in average daily gain (ADG among groups during the first feeding phase. Compared to animals fed isogenic corn, the piglets fed Bt maize gained more weight during the second feeding phase (Bt: 464.1 g/d, isogenic: 429.1 g/d; P < 0.05. Also, the ADG over the entire trial was higher in piglets fed Bt corn versus piglets fed isogenic corn (Bt: 396.4 g/d, isogenic: 374.1 g/d; P < 0.05. The ADG of the whole period decreased linearly (P<0.05 with respect to FB1 content of diet. Final weight was higher in piglets fed the diet containing Bt corn (Bt: 22.68 kg, isogenic: 21.83 kg; P < 0.05. No differences in feed intake and in the feed:gain ratio were observed, however a linear response between FB1 and feed:gain ratio in first 14 days of the experiment was detected.

    Full Text Available In early 1543 the lost play, I Vecchi, a multi-authored drama by the Affumati, was staged in the convent of Servi di Maria in Bologna. The reconstruction of that performance is based on a careful study of the little-known contract between Prospero Fontana and the Affumati as well as on rereadings of Matteo Pasi’s important manuscript, Cronaca, and of Ercole Bottrigari’s Mascara. From these documents, the artistic and artisan competence of Fontana as a man of the theatre also emerges. While Fontana’s collaboration with Giorgio Vasari for the Florentine festivals in 1565 is well documented, the proposal being made here – to connect Fontana’s scenography for  I Vecchi to Vasari’s for the Aretian Talanta  in Venice in 1542 – is innovative.Nei primi mesi del 1543 venne allestita nel bolognese convento dei Servi di Maria la perduta commedia I vecchi, drammaturgia a più mani degli Affumati. La ricostruzione di quello spettacolo è fondata sull’analisi del poco noto contratto tra il pittore Prospero Fontana e l’accademia felsinea, nonché sulla rilettura della Cronaca manoscritta di Matteo Pasi e della Mascara di Ercole Bottrigari. Dai citati documenti emerge la sapienza artistico-artigianale di Fontana uomo di teatro. Se è nota la sua collaborazione con Giorgio Vasari per le feste fiorentine del 1565, è nuova l’ipotesi di lavoro di mettere in rapporto la scenografia da lui realizzata per i Vecchi con quella impalcata a Venezia dal Vasari per la recita della Talanta aretiniana del 1542. 

  12. Rapid communication. New incursions of West Nile virus lineage 2 in Italy in 2013: the value of the entomological surveillance as early warning system

    Full Text Available West Nile virus (WNV is one of the most serious public health threats that Europe and the Mediterranean countries are currently facing. In Italy, WNV emerged in 1998 and has been circulating since 2008. To tackle its continuous incursions, Italian national and regional institutions set up a surveillance program, which includes the serological screening of sentinel horses, sentinel-chickens and backyard poultry flocks and the surveillance on all equine neurological cases, resident captured and wild dead birds, and vectors. This communication aims to assess the importance of the entomological surveillance program as an early warning system for WNV circulation. In the province of Modena, the circulation of WNV lineage 2 strains was first detected in pools of Culex pipiens on July the 3rd, 42 days prior to the onset of the first 2013 human WNV neuroinvasive case reported in the same province. Similarly in Veneto, WNV was first detected on July 3rd in a pool of Cx. pipiens collected in the province of Venezia. The first human neuroinvasive case in this region occurred in the Rovigo province on July the 24th, seven days after the detection of WNV lineage 2 in a mosquito pool collected in the same province. Up to the end of July 2013, WNV circulation was further detected in several other pools of Cx. pipiens mosquitoes collected in Emilia-Romagna, Veneto and Lombardia. According to the NS3 partial sequence alignments including all recent European and Italian Lineage 2 strains, the new circulating WNV lineage 2 strains share high nt homology with the Hungarian and with the previous lineage 2 strains isolated in Veneto and Sardegna in 2011 and 2012. These data provide a clear and practical demonstration of the relevance of a reliable entomological surveillance program to early detect WNV in Italy.

Recently, much effort has been put into investigating and introducing novel targeted agents into clinical practice, with the aim of improving prognosis and quality of life. Angiogenesis is a possible target. The aim of this review is to investigate the most common molecular pathways of angiogenesis, which have provided novel targets for tailored therapy in patients with ovarian cancer. These therapeutic strategies include monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine-kinase inhibitors. These drugs have as molecular targets vascular endothelial growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor receptors, platelet-derived growth factor, fibroblast growth factor, and angiopoietin. Bevacizumab was investigated in several Phase III studies, with interesting results. Today, there is strong evidence for introducing bevacizumab in the treatment of patients with advanced and recurrent ovarian cancer. Nevertheless, further investigations and large clinical trials are needed to understand the safety and effectiveness of bevacizumab, the optimal duration and timing of treatment, and activity in association with other chemotherapeutic and targeted agents. It also is necessary to identify biologic factors predictive of efficacy to choose the most appropriate antiangiogenic agent in the integrated treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer.Keywords: epithelial ovarian cancer, angiogenesis, bevacizumab, vascular endothelial growth factor, chemotherapy

Beginning with this model, our study aimed to validate a method to quantify the role of the ventral and dorsal streams in perceptual and visual-motor skills.Subjects and methods: Nineteen right-handed healthy subjects (mean age 22.8 years ± 3.18 with normal or corrected-to-normal vision were recruited. We proposed that a delayed pointing task, a distance reproduction task, and a delayed anti-pointing task could be used to assess the ventral stream, while the dorsal stream could be evaluated with a grasping task and an immediate pointing task. Performance was recorded and processed with the video-analysis software Dartfish ProSuite.Results: Results showed the expected pattern of predominance of attention for the superior left visual field, predominance of the flexor tone in proximal peri-personal space arm movements, tendency toward overestimation of short distances, and underestimation of long distances.Conclusion: We believe that our method is advantageous

Twenty-five patients referred to two tertiary-care hospitals were compared to a large control group (N=170 with no differences in age and sex. AN-R patients and controls filled out instruments assessing autistic traits (autism spectrum quotient [AQ], psychopathology (youth self-report [YSR] 11–18, and eating patterns (eating attitude test [EAT]. In order to disentangle the possible mediating role of internalizing symptoms on autistic traits, two separate control groups (called True and False healthy control, both composed of 25 eating-problem-free participants were derived from the whole control group on the basis of the presence or absence of internalizing problems in the YSR.Results: AN-R patients scored significantly higher on AQ compared to the whole control group and to controls without internalizing problems (True HC, but these differences disappeared when only controls with internalizing problems (False HC were considered.Conclusion: Autistic traits in AN

Several of them are already available or in ongoing clinical trials. These new compounds should take advantage of new insights into the basic pathophysiology of epileptogenesis, drug metabolism and drug interactions. Many of them still need to be further evaluated mainly in real-world observational trials and registries. Among newer anticonvulsant drugs for partial-onset seizures (POSs, rufinamide, lacosamide, eslicarbazepine and perampanel are those new treatment options for which more substantial clinical evidence is currently available, both in adults and, to some extent, in children. Among the newest anticonvulsant drugs, brivaracetam, a high-affinity synaptic vesicle protein 2A ligand, reported to be 10- to 30-fold more potent than levetiracetam, is highly effective in a broad range of experimental models of focal and generalized seizures. Unlike levetiracetam, brivaracetam does not inhibit high-voltage Ca2+ channels and AMPA receptors and appears to inhibit neuronal voltage-gated sodium channels playing a role as a partial antagonist. Brivaracetam has a linear pharmacokinetic profile, is extensively metabolized and is excreted by urine (only 8%–11% unchanged. It does not seem to influence the pharmacokinetics of other antiepileptic drugs. It was approved in the European Union in January 2016 and in the US in February 2016 as an adjunctive therapy for the treatment of POS in patients older than 16 years of age. To date, its clinical efficacy as adjunctive antiepileptic treatment in adults with refractory POS at doses between 50 and 200

Approximately 110 trials met our inclusion criteria and were included in the current review.Results: The most effective pharmacological treatment for migraine prophylaxis is propranolol and anticonvulsants such as topiramate, valproic acid, and amitriptyline. Nonmedical treatments such as acupuncture, biofeedback, and melatonin have also been proposed. Peripheral neurostimulation has been suggested for the treatment of chronic daily headache that does not respond to prophylaxis and for the treatment of drug-resistant primary headache. The majority of the pharmacological agents available today have limited efficacy and may cause adverse effects incompatible with long-term use.Limitations: The review was limited by the highly variable and often insufficient reporting of the complex outcome data and by the fact that migraine prophylaxis trials

Among these diseases, heart failure (HF and acute myocardial infarction (AMI are the most common causes of hospitalization. Therefore, readmission for HF and AMI is receiving increasing attention. Several socioeconomic factors could affect readmissions in this target group, and thus, a systematic review was conducted to identify the effect of socioeconomic factors on the risk for readmission in people aged 65 years and older with HF or AMI.Methods: The search was carried out by querying an electronic database and hand searching. Studies with an association between the risk for readmission and at least one socioeconomic factor in patients aged 65 years or older who are affected by HF or AMI were included. A quality assessment was conducted independently by two reviewers. The agreement was quantified by Cohen’s Kappa statistic. The outcomes of studies were categorized in the short-term and the long-term, according to the follow-up period of readmission. A positive association was reported if an increase in the risk for readmission among disadvantaged patients was found. A cumulative effect of socioeconomic factors was computed by considering the association for each study and the number of available studies.Results: A total of eleven articles were included in the review. They were mainly published in the United States. All the articles analyzed patients who were hospitalized for HF, and four of them also analyzed patients with AMI.

Colloidal silver nanoparticles (NPs are attracting interest as novel effective antimicrobial agents for the prevention of several infectious diseases.Methods: Water-soluble, negatively charged silver nanoparticles (AgNPs were synthesized by reduction with citric and tannic acid and characterized by transmission electron microscopy, dynamic light scattering, zeta potential, differential centrifuge sedimentation, and ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy. AgNPs were tested with model Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria in comparison to two different kinds of commercially available AgNPs.Results: In this work, AgNPs with higher antibacterial activity compared to the commercially available colloidal silver solutions were prepared and investigated. Bacteria were plated and the antibacterial activity was tested at the same concentration of silver ions in all samples. The AgNPs did not show any significant reduction in the antibacterial activity for an acceptable time period. In addition, AgNPs were transferred to organic phase and retained their antibacterial efficacy in both aqueous and nonaqueous media and exhibited no toxicity in eukaryotic cells.Conclusion: We developed AgNPs with a 20 nm diameter and negative zeta potential with powerful antibacterial activity and low toxicity compared

Advances in the sharing of best practices in the donation community have contributed greatly to this aim over the past 5 years. Studies published during the past five years (2010–2014 were analyzed to gain insight on the evolving organizational areas and tools that the procurement and transplantation pathways have been focused on. The hypothesis assessed is that networking and efficacious handling of this complex path may be ameliorated by an adaptive organizational toolbox. Methods: A thorough search has been conducted using various databases, ie, Cochrane library, PubMed, EMBASE, Federico II University Open Archive. The evidence was considered following the Effective Practice and Organization of Care Group checklist. Prevalent organizational attitudes and areas were assessed, and various scenarios were analyzed. Initially, all titles and abstracts were screened. In the next phase, the full text of all abstracts considered potentially relevant by at least one of the reviewers was evaluated. Inconsistencies in decision-making within this second phase were solved based on consensus between both reviewers. In this phase, for every study we defined whether the organization was considered relevant and what the scenario was. The information was extracted from each study based on bibliographic details (author, journal, year of publication, and language. As many as 1,071 studies were analyzed, and 81

    The condensing power plants under low vacuum operation, which provide exhaust steam for the low-temperature multi-effect distillation desalination system were presented to achieve water and power cogeneration. Based on the cogeneration some part of the exhaust from steam turbine was used to supply heat for the hot users. The matrix was used to solve the thermal system for power plant. Low-vacuum operation model was based on the calculation of off-design, using Friuli Nagel formulation. For the desalination process, equivalent temperature difference method was adopted. The thermo-economic model of the water cost was also established. The results show that there is a best evaporater effect number for the water cost as the effect number increases, and the best effect number will change under different heating load.%对于凝汽式机组,提出采用低真空运行后的高温排汽作为低温多效蒸馏海水淡化的热源,实现水电联产.在此基础上,冬季利用一部分汽轮机排汽用于对热用户供暖.电厂在低真空运行模式下的热力计算采用矩阵法并基于弗留格尔公式进行变工况计算.低温多效蒸馏海水淡化系统的数学模型采用等温差法建立,并同时建立了制水成本的经济性计算模型.根据计算结果分析了低温多效蒸馏海水淡化系统的蒸发器效数、供热负荷、蒸发器传热系数和制水成本之间的关系,并得出了影响制水成本的主要因素及其敏感性分析.

    2003-04-01

    A paleobathymetric reconstruction, based on the integrated study of both foraminiferal assemblages and red-algal concretions (rhodoliths), has been carried out for the Venetian Foothill succession cropping out along the southern border of the Alpine chain (Veneto-Friuli Foreland System, NE Italy). The studied succession, up to 500 m thick, has been deposited into a shallow to deep water marine environment during the Aquitanian to Langhian time-interval, due to the combined effect of the Dinaric and Alpine tectonics and the eustatic sea-level changes. The main goals of this work are: i) to reconstruct the paleobathymetry of the Venetian foothill succession and, tentatively, ii) to relate the bathymetric evolution of the studied areas to the sea-level changes and to the history of the vertical motion ("geohistory") of the underlying substratum in response to tectonics and sedimentary load. The detected time-interval (Aquitanian to Langhian) is particularly important as it embraces the transition between the Dinaric and South-Alpine orogenetic phases. The main results can be summarised as follows: a paleobathymetric evolution has been observed for the studied succession from the Aquitanian to the Langhian. In particular a 40--60 m paleodepth has been determined for the Calcareniti di Castelcucco Fm. Moreover a peculiar depositional environment, such as an outer-shelf incised by submarine canyons and characterised by a relatively high water hydrodynamism, has been proposed for this formation on the basis of the rhodolith size (5--6 cm). An upper to lower neritic depth (from 0--100 to 100--200 m) has been obtained for the Siltiti dei Casoni and Arenarie di Libano Formations and for the Marne di Monte Bolago Fm., respectively. An upper bathyal depth (200--600 m) has been determined for the lower-middle part of the Marne di Monfumo Fm. Finally a gradually decreasing in depth has been observed, in particular a lower to upper neritic paleodepth (from 200--100 to 100--0 m

    Full Text Available Abstract To analyse the status and distribution of lynx in the Italian Alps from 1995 to 1999, all signs of lynx presence found were pooled, evaluated and interpreted with the same method. We distinguished three levels of reliability in accordance with the SCALP guidelines and the possibility to verify the collected data: Quality 1 (Q1 represent the hard facts, e.g. all reports of lynx killed, found dead or photographs and videos of lynx. Quality 2 (Q2 include all records of wild prey remains, livestock killed, tracks and scats confirmed by people who attended special courses, e.g. mainly game and forest wardens. Quality 3 (Q3 are all signs of presence reported by the general public as well as all sightings and vocalisations, e.g. mainly signs that cannot be verified. A total of 261 signs of lynx presence were recorded in the Italian Alps, of which 85 were Q2, the remaining were Q3 as no Q1 data was reported. The Q2 data was confined to four different areas whereas the Q3 data showed a scattered distribution in all the Alps. The dynamics in the Italian Alps during the past pentad was characterised by four main events: (1 the positive trend that had been observed in the north-east of Friuli V.G. (the Tarvisiano up until 1995 decreased, but (2 at the same time an increased number of data was reported from north-east of the Veneto (Province of Belluno. Consequently, in the south-eastern Alps more data were collected over a bigger area than in the previous pentad. (3 The lynx occurrence of unknown origin in the Trentino has gone extinct again. And (4 the suspected presence of lynx in the Val d'Aosta and in the northernmost Piemonte (Val d'Ossola was confirmed by Q2 data. In Italy, lynx still have not established a vital population even though suitable habitat is available from the south-western through to the eastern Alps. With the exception of the new occurrence in the province of Belluno, lynx occur only in areas bordering with

    In recent years, particularly after the L'Aquila 2009 earthquake and the 2012 Emilia sequence, the issue of earthquake predictability has been at the center of the discussion in Italy, not only within the scientific community but also in the courtrooms and in the media. Among the noxious effects of the L'Aquila trial there was an increase of scaremongering and false alerts during earthquake sequences and swarms, culminated in a groundless one-night evacuation in northern Tuscany in 2013. We have analyzed the Italian seismicity of the last decades in order to determine the rate of seismic sequences and investigate some of their characters, including frequencies, min/max durations, maximum magnitudes, main shock timing, etc. Selecting only sequences with an equivalent magnitude of 3.5 or above, we find an average of 30 sequences/year. Although there is an extreme variability in the examined parameters, we could set some boundaries, useful to obtain some quantitative estimates of the ongoing activity. In addition, the historical catalogue is rich of complex sequences in which one main shock is followed, seconds, days or months later, by another event with similar or higher magnitude We also analysed the Italian CPT11 catalogue (Rovida et al., 2011) between 1950 and 2006 to highlight the foreshock-mainshock event couples that were suggested in previous studies to exist (e.g. six couples, Marzocchi and Zhuang, 2011). Moreover, to investigate the probability of having random foreshock-mainshock couples over the investigated period, we produced 1000 synthetic catalogues, randomly distributing in time the events occured in such period. Preliminary results indicate that: (1) all but one of the the so-called foreshock-mainshock pairs found in Marzocchi and Zhuang (2011) fall inside previously well-known and studied seismic sequences (Belice, Friuli and Umbria-Marche), meaning that suggested foreshocks are also aftershocks; and (2) due to the high-rate of the italian

    Full Text Available Local Earthquake Tomography (LET is a useful tool for imaging lateral heterogeneities in the upper crust. The pattern of P- and S-wave velocity anomalies, in relation to the seismicity distribution along active fault zones. can shed light on the existence of discrete seismogenic patches. Recent tomographic studies in well monitored seismic areas have shown that the regions with large seismic moment release generally correspond to high velocity zones (HVZ's. In this paper, we discuss the relationship between the seismogenic behavior of faults and the velocity structure of fault zones as inferred from seismic tomography. First, we review some recent tomographic studies in active strike-slip faults. We show examples from different segments of the San Andreas fault system (Parkfield, Loma Prieta, where detailed studies have been carried out in recent years. We also show two applications of LET to thrust faults (Coalinga, Friuli. Then, we focus on the Irpinia normal fault zone (South-Central Italy, where a Ms = 6.9 earthquake occurred in 1980 and many thousands of attershock travel time data are available. We find that earthquake hypocenters concentrate in HVZ's, whereas low velocity zones (LVZ’ s appear to be relatively aseismic. The main HVZ's along which the mainshock rupture bas propagated may correspond to velocity weakening fault regions, whereas the LVZ's are probably related to weak materials undergoing stable slip (velocity strengthening. A correlation exists between this HVZ and the area with larger coseismic slip along the fault, according to both surface evidence (a fault scarp as high as 1 m and strong ground motion waveform modeling. Smaller wave-length, low-velocity anomalies detected along the fault may be the expression of velocity strengthening sections, where aseismic slip occurs. According to our results, the rupture at the nucleation depth (~ 10-12 km is continuous for the whole fault lenoth (~ 30 km, whereas at shallow depth

    The youngest seafloor sediments of the Gulf of Trieste (Northern Adriatic) are represented by an up to several 100 meters thick succession of Pliocene to Quaternary continental and shallow-marine deposits recording numerous transgressive-regressive cycles. These sediments are separated from older lithologies (mainly Eocene flysch) by an erosional unconformity. Previous geophysical campaigns conducted in the Italian part of the Gulf of Trieste revealed a complex undulating morphology of the unconformity characterised by numerous morphological steps in the flysch appearing between 40 and 200 m below sea level. From correlation with onshore well data from the Friuli and Veneto area it is assumed that the highest system of these unconformities located at approximately 40 mbsl represents a marine abrasion platform formed during the MIS 5 period sea-level highstand. We present the first observations of these abrasion platforms in the Bay of Koper in the southern (Slovenian) part of the Gulf of Trieste. A series of perpendicular sub-bottom sonar profiles with a spacing of 250-500 meters was acquired in the Bay of Koper between 2009 and 2012 with the Innomar parametric sediment echo sounder SES-2000. Along the northern coast of the bay several acoustic facies were resolved, including the top erosional unconformity surface of the flysch. On this surface we located platforms at 35 ms (platform A), 40 ms (platform B) and 50 ms (platform C) of two-way-travel time. The top of abrasion platform B coincides with the top of a sediment progradational wedge which overlies abrasion platform C. No progradational wedge is developed at the top of platform A. Due to signal attenuation and multiples sub-bottom profiles could not be interpreted below 53 ms TWT time. We used a sound velocity of 1650 m/s for the time to depth conversion, which places the platforms at the depth of 28, 33 and 41 mbsl, respectively. Assuming that the abrasion platforms are a remnant of the MIS 5 highstand, this

  17. The Lido as Venice's refuse tip: Dalmatian sheep and the 1819 elephant.

    Giormani, Virgilio

    2004-01-01

    The Lido of Venice is an island twelve kilometers long and between a hundred and one thousand meters wide. The citizans of Venice and many turists can't imagine today, what Lido was some centuries ago Initially totally sandy, it was fertilized by means of a continuous supply of Venice's garbage (the "scoasse"). In addition to the "scoasse", damaged foodstuffs and the waste of the vegetable market were also sent to the Lido. Other fertilisers originated from the dung of the cattle and sheep arriving by ship from Dalmatia, which were landed on the Lido, where they could pasture before slaughter to regain weight lost during their voyage. The sheep dung, especially, was important for the proto-industrial production of saltpetre, a material of the greatest strategic importance, like uranium at the present time. Saltpetre is the most important component of gun powder, which was the only explosive known up to the second half of 19th century. There were plans to establish an "artificial nitriary" in the Lido, making use of the garbage and of the animal waste. In all probability, the most bulky item ever buried in the Lido is the corpse of an enraged elephant, which escaped from its cage on the Riva degli Schiavoni where it was performing during the 1819 carnival, and was killed by a cannon shot in a church where it took refuge. The original title of the paper, published in Italian is: V. Giormani, II Lido di Venezia "scoassera" della città. I montoni dalmati e l'elefante del 1819, in Atti del III Convegno nazionale di storia della medicina veterinaria, Lastra a Signa (Firenze), 23-24 settembre 2000, a cura di Alba Veggetti, Brescia, 2001, pp. 333-339. Other information has been added in order to facilitate non-italians readers and articles appearing after the publication of the Proceedings of the Third National Congress for the History of Veterinary Medicine, Lastra a Signa, (Florence), Italy, have also been used.

    In a previous research, a preliminary study was carried out on the disinfection efficiency of peracetic acid (PAA), comparing it to that of other disinfectants that are typically used, in batch tests with dosage values ranging from 0.5 to 5 ppm. The study was carried out on samples of water collected from several significant points of the treatment process at the main water treatment plant in Jesolo (Venice, Italy). On the basis of results (basically positive at that time) obtained from these tests, a 400 litre/hour pilot plant was built, as a lower scale reproduction of the drink water treatment system mentioned earlier, in order to study the characteristics of PAA even in tests that could more realistically simulate the flow of water along the process. These tests essentially confirmed the kinetics of the spontaneous hydrolysis to CH{sub 3} COOH+H{sub 2}O{sub 2} and those of dismutation to CH{sub 3}COOH+O{sub 2}, with half-life time values ranging from 3 to 12 hours, depending on the characteristics of the water (especially the pH factor) and the PAA concentration values. [Italian] In un precedente lavoro e' stato effettuato un preventivo studio sull'efficienza disinfettiva dell'acido peracetico, anche in confronto con gli altri piu' usuali disinfettanti, in prove condotte in batch, con dosaggi compresi tra 0.5 e 5 ppm, su campioni di acqua prelevati dai diversi punti significativi della linea di trattamento della centrale di Jesolo (Torre Caligo), gestita dal Consorzio Acquedottistico del Basso Piave di S. Dona' di Piave (Venezia). Sulla base dei risultati, sostanzialmente positivi, e' stato costruito un impianto pilota da 400l/h, riproducente, in scala, la linea di potabilizzazione su ricordata, per studiare le caratteristiche del PAA anche in prove piu' probanti condotte in flusso. In tali prove sono state sostanzialmente riconfermate le cinetiche delle reazioni spontanee di dirolisi a CH{sub 3}COOH+H{sub 2}O{sub 2} e di

    Full Text Available Per il periodo preunitario siamo ancora lontani dall’idea di turismo nell’accezione attuale e ancor di più non si può parlare di turismo di massa. Operatori turistici come Thomas Cook arriveranno in Italia solo nella seconda metà dell’800 quando ormai è in declino il Grand Tour. Diffusosi a partire dal XVII, il Grand Tour era inteso come quel lungo viaggio nell'Europa continentale effettuato dai ricchi giovani dell'aristocrazia britannica e destinato a perfezionare la loro educazione con partenza ed arrivo in una medesima città. Questo viaggio poteva durare dai pochi mesi fino a 8 anni. Le destinazioni principali erano la Francia, l'Olanda, la Germania, ma aveva come obiettivo privilegiato l'Italia e Roma, e di norma includeva le tappe di Venezia, Firenze, Bologna, Pisa e Napoli. Durante il Tour, i giovani imparavano a conoscere la politica, la cultura, l'arte e le antichità dei paesi europei. Passavano il loro tempo facendo giri turistici, studiando e facendo acquisti. L'Italia con la sua eredità della Roma antica, con i suoi monumenti, divenne uno dei posti più popolari da visitare. Oltre alla conoscenza del mondo antico gli Inglesi vennero così a contatto con le opere di Palladio e con il Neoclassicismo. Napoli, soprattutto quando divenne Capitale con l’arrivo della dinastia borbonica sul trono, era tra le mete finali dei grandtouristi. Oltre alle bellezze naturali e al tepore del clima mite durante tutto l’anno, l’élite culturale europea era interessata alla storia e all’arte del sud della penisola. L’Italia meridionale raccoglieva l’eredità della Magna Grecia e le suggestioni dell’Impero Romano, che si potevano ammirare sia a est che a ovest della città. Ma c’erano anche il Vesuvio, la Solfatara, i Campi Flegrei, luoghi legati ad eventi impressionanti e scientificamente ancora non provati, e che sollecitavano la curiosità di naturalisti, studiosi di flora e fauna ma anche di pittori e artisti in generale

Moreover, our experiment provided new information in order to improve the knowledge of the regional and local processes acting in the Venice Lagoon. We found that the northern basin of the lagoon is subsiding at a rate of about 3-4 mm/yr, while the central and the southern lagoon regions are more stable. At the local scale, i.e., the scale of the single salt marshes, significant differences have been detected depending, for example, on the nature and the architecture of Holocene deposits (Tosi et al., 2009).

The aim of the present study was to assess the cost- effectiveness of treatment with HAART in a large clinical cohort of naïve adults to determine the potential role of single-tablet regimens in the management of patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV. An incremental cost-effectiveness ratio analysis was performed, including a quality-adjusted life year approach. Results: In total, 741 patients (females comprising 25.5% were retrospectively included. The mean age was 39 years, the mean CD4 cell count was 266 cells/µL, and the mean viral load was 192,821 copies/mL. The most commonly used backbone was tenofovir + emtricitabine (77.6%; zidovudine + lamivudine was used in 10%, lamivudine + abacavir in 3%, and other nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI or NRTI-free regimens in 9.4% of patients. NNRTIs were used in 52.8% of cases, boosted protease inhibitors in 44.1%, and unboosted protease inhibitors and integrase inhibitors in 0.7% and 2.4%, respectively. Starting therapy at CD4 >500 cells/µL and CD4 351–500 cells/µL rather than at <201 cells/µL was the more cost-effective approach. The same consideration was not true comparing current indications with the possibility to start HAART at any CD4 value (eg, >500 cells per µL; in this case, the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio value was €199,130 per quality-adjusted life year gained, a higher value than the one suggested in guidelines.

In the afternoon the poster session was held, in frame of the exhibition of fellows in Rome. This included a work of a fellow for flood resilient San Francisco harbour, but also geology issues of Romania. Some of the talks were also acompanied by posters. Another issues discussed was water scarcity and drought. In the exhibition the organiser had an art piece showing water reflection. After the poster visit a book launch of the convener of the workshop with Cerasella Craciun, Space and time visualization published in 2016 by Springer International in the geography series took place. Some of the authors were present. It also built a welcome transition to the introduction to the museum visit on the next day, the Etruscan museum villa Giulia where the workshop took place, to a project showing the virtual model of Tiber valley in antiquity. Ciprian Buzila drew the conclusions and conducted the study tours next day, among others to thermal bathes. Detailed information on the workshop, including some of the abstracts, is available at https://sites.google.com/site/egutopicalevent/home Conclusions The workshop featured participation from Romania, Italy, the USA and UK. Numerous disciplines were present and we made a contribution to science and the arts.

Release of NO seems to be linked to H+ and CO2 concentration and to exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, a common medical condition in the elderly. Flow-mediated dilation (FMD, a valuable cardiovascular risk indicator, allows assessment of endothelial-dependent vasodilation, which is to a certain extent mediated by NO. We investigated the effects of hypercapnia and acid-base imbalance on endothelial-dependent vasodilation by measurement of FMD in 96 elderly patients with acute exacerbation of COPD. Patients underwent complete arterial blood gas analysis and FMD measurement before (phase 1 and after (phase 2 standard therapy for acute exacerbation of COPD and recovery.

    This second joint conference between the APS Topical Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter and the International Association for the Advancement of High Pressure Science and Technology (AIRAPT) demonstrates that static and dynamic compression of condensed matter continues to be a vibrant field of science and engineering. It is also by its nature an interdisciplinary field, incorporating chemistry, materials science, solid mechanics, plasma physics, and condensed matter physics, and utilizes theoretical, computational, and experimental tools. Recent years have brought about many advances in loading platforms, diagnostics, and computations that are leading to the emergence of many new avenues of research. These advances are also breathing new life into traditional topics such as equations of state, phase transformations, and chemistry at extreme conditions. The plenary lectures by Gennady Kanel, Karl Syassen, David Ceperley, Jon Eggert, Duck Young Kim, and Richard Kraus spanned the disciplines of static and dynamic high pressure physics and illustrated the breadth of the field. They also showed that interesting and important problems remain for researchers of the future to solve. The main guiding principal in the organization of this conference was to intertwine static and dynamical experimental alongside computational and theoretical studies of similar materials. To achieve this goal, we arranged the conference to include static, dynamic, and computational components in the same sessions, quite often taking presenters out of their comfort zone. The three special sessions on Deep Carbon Budget (organized by Giulia Galli and Rus Hemley), High Energy Density Materials (organized by Raymond Jeanloz and Jon Eggert), and Dynamic Response of Materials (organized by Yogendra Gupta and John Sarrao) furthered this guiding principal. We also endeavored to represent the breadth of static and dynamic high pressure science and technology, notably beyond that done at

    Full Text Available La ricerca del gruppo di studio della Facoltà di Architettura della “Sapienza” di Roma che coordino indaga, all’interno del tema più generale della “Città in estensione” , il problema di come i centri storici minori possano subire trasformazioni contemporanee “congruenti” con il processo formativo, nella convinzione che occorra accettare il dato incontrovertibile che un organismo urbano, come ogni organismo vivente, non possa che essere sede di continue modificazioni. La ricerca proposta dall'unità locale della Facoltà di Architettura di Valle Giulia, si inquadra nell'ambito più generale della ricerca nazionale condividendone i presupposti che partono dalla considerazione di come le connotazioni paesaggistiche del territorio italiano suggeriscano strumenti alternativi, rispetto agli attuali, del progetto di architettura e la possibilità di una sua originale collocazione, con caratteri specifici, negli scenari internazionali della disciplina. In particolare, fine della ricerca dell'unità locale è il carattere del paesaggio laziale dovuto alla diffusione nel territorio di centri abitati di rilevante interesse storico che vanno rapidamente perdendo la loro qualità insediativa e paesaggistica. Questi centri sono strutturalmente indeboliti, inoltre, dalla presenza dell'area metropolitana romana, con i relativi fenomeni di rapida trasformazione rilevabili nel territorio, il quale va assumendo una forma progressivamente disorganica. La ricerca propone, verificandone le potenzialità in alcuni casi di studio concreti, la lettura dei tessuti dei centri minori, il loro formarsi con caratteri tipici, le potenziali trasformazioni e “annodamenti” in luoghi nodali della città a formare anche nuovi organismi edilizi specializzati che innovano l’edilizia esistente in modo conforme e proporzionato permettendo di evitare uno sprawl specialistico (si veda il caso dello spostamento dei municipi al di fuori del centro che si aggiunge

    performed a dip-domain analysis that allowed to categorize the different fold limbs and reduce the uncertainty in the reconstruction of the fault network topology in map view. This enabled us to reconstruct a high-quality, low-uncertainty 3D structural and geological model, which unambiguously proves that deformations with a top-to-WSW Dinaric transport direction propagate farther to the west than previously supposed in this part of the Southern Alps. Our new structural reconstruction of the Vajont valley have also clarified the structural control on the 1963 catastrophic landslide (which caused over 2000 losses). Besides being a challenging natural laboratory for testing analysis and modelling methodologies to be used when reconstructing in 3D this kind of complex interference structures, the Vajont area also provides useful clues on the still-enigmatic structures in the frontal part of the Friuli-Venetian Southern Alps, buried in the Venetian Plain foredeep. These include active seismogenic thrust-faults and, at the same time, represent a growing interest for the oil industry.

Su Il senso della morte e l'amore della vita nel Rinascimento, de 1957, es una obra maestra sobre los orígenes de la sensibilidad moderna: sin olvidar el naciente vitalismo, estudia el desarrollo de dos motivos, el del ars moriendi, que tiene su evolución propia desde 1350 hasta su difusión impresa, y el de lo macabro, que refleja la crisis de conciencia del siglo XV y adquiere «unas dimensiones desconocidas y verdaderamente anormales». En este libro sobre un problema clave como la muerte, apela de modo notable a la iconografía: Tenenti ha recordado que la cultura tradicional, eclesiástica sobre todo, percibió un mayor peligro en la capacidad de reflexión autónoma y de crítica de los hombres de letras, que en las renovaciones radicales de los artistas. Numerosos trabajos de conjunto realizados por él han perseguido una historia global: Los fundamentos del mundo moderno; Florencia en la época de los Medicis; La formación del mundo moderno; El Renacimiento; el primero de ellos estaba firmado con un historiador de su misma generación, R.

Sin dalla sua nascita, nel 1925, il LUCE (L’Unione Cinematografi ca Educativa inviò i suoi operatori a documentare musei, gallerie e mostre, specialmente in occasione di visite ufficiali dei sovrani e di esponenti del regime fascista. Cinegiornali e documentari didattici sono visibili on-line sul sito dell’Archivio, e parzialmente anche sul canale dedicato di YouTube.

L’importanza del materiale del LUCE, che a partire dal 1931 diventa anche sonoro, offre uno spaccato ancora poco conosciuto di questa forma di documentazione in relazione al coevo dibattito sui musei, tra propaganda e uso pedagogico dell’immagine. Vengono esaminate modalità e strategie di presentazione visive e testuali distinguendo tra gli i musei di archeologia, arte antica, arte moderna e contemporanea, considerando alcuni casi specifi ci di esposizioni temporanee come la Biennale di Venezia e la Quadriennale di Roma.

    Full Text Available Con il testamento del 25 marzo 1531 Lorenzo Lotto stabiliva la ripartizione dei modelli in gesso e in cera e dei propri disegni tra tre suoi antichi allievi: il bergamasco Francesco Bonetti, il veneziano Pietro di Giovanni – in quel momento attivo a Ragusa, l’odierna Dubrovnik – e il marchigiano maestro Giulio da Amandola, identificabile con Giulio Vergari. Dalle provenienze dei tre artefici si manifesta una chiara mappa geografica, come se Lotto avesse consapevolmente deciso di lasciare i ferri del mestiere nei luoghi della sua esperienza pittorica: a Bergamo, a Venezia e nelle Marche. Contemporaneamente Lotto frequenta i pittori Alessandro Oliverio, Bonifacio de’ Pitati da Verona e Girolamo da Santa Croce: il secondo, stando alle disposizioni testamentarie, avrebbe dovuto completare le opere rimaste incompiute alla morte di Lotto, mentre al terzo sarebbero andati alcuni strumenti della professione a beneficio dei propri figli. Si viene così a delineare un gruppo di artisti marginale rispetto al contesto lagunare, ma orientato verso committenze di entroterra o di area adriatica. La consapevolezza acquisita da Lotto nell’incidenza territoriale della sua attività spiega la ragione delle reminiscenze iconografiche e formali bergamasche in parte della produzione risalente agli estremi anni marchigiani (1549-1556, ovvero a quella fase inaugurata con l’Assunzione anconetana di San Francesco alle Scale, pala realizzata nel 1549-1550 con la collaborazione di Giuseppe Belli da Ponteranica.

Il carattere speciale della forma e del contenuto rappresenta un tratto fondamentale della pittura religiosa di Cattaro, corroborata da frammenti superstiti di dipinti murali realizzati nel periodo che va dall’inizio del XIII alla fine del XV secolo. Lo studio della pictura graeca di Cattaro, nel contesto storico in cui è emersa e perdurata, invita a considerare il ruolo che la stessa città di Cattaro ha avuto, da caratteristico centro culturale e diplomatico nel quadro dello stato medievale serbo a città di confine alla periferia della Repubblica di Venezia.

    Full Text Available Sin dall’adozione della Carta di Venezia nel 1964, i programmi e le politiche di conservazione hanno assunto che le nuove costruzione nei contesti storici-ed in generale l’architettura contemporanea- dovessero continuare a riflettere i caratteri del tempo in una irrevocabile differenza tra il presente e la concezione storicista dello stile architettonico. Tra i mandati impliciti della Carta, a riguardo di nuovi interventi in centri storici, è che questi “mostrassero il segno della contemporaneità”, un contrasto formale permanente tra la “architettura contemporanea” e il preesistente tessuto tradizionale. Una così chiara distinzione stilistica mostrerebbe inequivocabilmente l’identità dei nuovi interventi come distinti dalle fabbriche storiche, evitando ogni rischio di “falsificazione”. Questa affermazione, ribadita ancora più esplicitamente in altre Carte e regolamenti varati successivamente, guida di fatto tutti gli interventi di conservazione e pianificazione ancora oggi. Ma l’identificazione della “architettura contemporanea” con una particolare impronta stilistica non è più possibile. La produzione dei progettisti di oggi mostra una diversità di caratteri ed una pluralità di scopi, dalle documentate applicazioni in un linguaggio tradizionalmente formale alle apparentemente originali configurazioni che tendono a drammatizzare il contrasto con i modelli storici. In queste circostanze, una posizione a favore di ogni singola azione progettuale come strumento attuativo delle politiche di conservazione sembra del tutto arbitraria. Imporre una preferenza stilistica in opposizione alle tipologie tradizionali ed ai linguaggi formali diventa distruttivo di quel carattere che rappresenta il valore per eccellenza di quei luoghi, i cosiddetti centri storici. In risposta all’aumento di un comune malcontento verso i caratteri dissonanti di molte nuove realizzazioni nelle aree storiche, architetti, conservatori e urbanisti

    . Part of our research on behavioral response to flash flood was conducted in the Gard area in France as well as in the Friuli region in Italy. It was a first intent to associate social science research to hydro-meteorological observation. This interdisciplinary collaboration has been a real success and it needs now to be extended to operational services involved in crisis management and response. Based on examples of what have been done with behavioral and physical data collected in the context of interdisciplinary post-event investigations, the presentation will focus on the scientific needs in terms of methods, data collection and archive and make a proposal of integrating this dynamic in the framework of an emerging project called DELUGE (Disasters Evolving Lessons Using Global Experience). This trans-disciplinary initiative aims at developing capacity building related to post-disaster field techniques to change the post-event field experience enterprise and assure that practitioners, forecasters, researchers, students, and others learn from experience to reduce losses.

In prayer no. 86 the praise refers not only to the significance of St. Mary as the Mother of God, but to her purely feminine and maternal functions and her role of a participant and witness to the life and passion of Christ. They find their equivalents in Marian and Christological artistic series of the time. One of them is a series of scenes on the wooden door of the church Sankta Maria im Kapitol in Cologne, made ca 1050. The church was rebuilt by abbotess Ida, one of Gertrude’s aunts, who also funded the door. In this church Gertrude’s mother, Richeza, was buried. Gertrude could see the door during her stay in Rhineland in the years 1075-1076. A number o f depictions are included in miniatures in the manuscripts from the Ottonian epoch, e.g. a Scripture-Book of abbotess Hitda of Meschede from ca 1020, with an Annunciation scene. Gertrude knew a different presentation o f this scene from monumental mosaics in Kiev. The maternity o f St. Mary was presented in many different types of the Nativity. An exceptionally extended depiction in the eastern spirit, including a reference to apocryphal texts, is shown in one o f the Codex’ miniatures.

    , crawling under the skirt of the ‘baba’ (the oldest woman in the village is believed to protect from diseases and bring fertility. The ‘baba’ is most commonly associated with a mountain, which could point to the wider Eurasian representations of the mountain as the earth and a woman/mother. The Karst tradition which has it that a person falling on the ground has kissed ‘the snotty baba’ could also suggest that the ‘snotty baba’ is nothing but the earth itself. As stone monoliths or mountain names, ‘Babas’ commonly appear in the vicinity of archaeological sites. The toponyms show a pattern of the Baba opposed to a celestial male deity (Slavic Perun, often in a tripartite structure. The lasciviousness of the traditions about the ‘baba’ can be compared to those surrounding the Slavic goddess Mokosh. Both figures are associated with adjectives of moisture, debauchery, sexual traits, and to Mother Earth. However, the analogies go beyond the Slavic world. The traditions of ‘kissing the crone on the buttocks’ on going somewhere for the first time are known also in Liguria, the valleys of Adda and Mera, and Friuli in northern Italy, in Benevento in southern Italy, and in France up to Brittany. Like in Slovenia, people in northern Italy used to predict bad weather by observing the mountain ridge named after the ‘baba’ or ‘crone’. Moreover, Liguria has the same saying about falling down on the ground as the Karst tradition mentioned above. The widespread analogies all over Europe suggest a much more ancient background for the ‘baba’ than has been supposed. Particularly striking is the similarity between such specific grotesque, lascivious traditions as ‘kissing the baba or blowing up her buttocks’. The ‘Baba’ is an ambivalent folklore figure. Her degraded principle can be seen in horrifying representations and in the threats with repulsive, muddy, and snotty ‘crones’ on entering a town, in her connection with a sudden cold, winter

    Full Text Available L’istituzione della festa per l’Immacolata Concezione diede impulso ad una serie di innovazioni con esiti musicali nella liturgia, nelle fondazioni musicali e nella realizzazione del tema figurativo dell’Immacolata. Fra le sue prime azioni, papa Sisto IV commissionò un nuovo ufficio, l’Officium Immaculatae Virginis Mariae di Leonardo Nogarolo (1477 cui seguì l’Officium Conceptionis Virginis Mariae di Bernardino Busti (1492, pervenutici entrambi privi di notazione. Per l’ufficio di L. Nogarolo e per l’introito della messa “Egredimini et videte filie Sion” furono composti dei canti propri, pubblicati rispettivamente in due raccolte curate da Francesco de Brugis: l’Antiphonarium e il Graduale secundum morem sancte Romanae ecclesie (Venezia, Lucantonio Giunta, 1503 e 1500. Al tempo di Sisto IV i canti si ispiravano certamente all’ufficio di L. Nogarolo, ma è assai probabile che nei primi anni dell’istituzione della festa convivessero più tradizioni musicali. Le cronache confermano che Sisto IV soleva celebrare la festa nella basilica di San Pietro, eseguendo l’ufficio (la vigilia, poi la messa al mattino e, nel pomeriggio, una processione lo conduceva alla chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo, dove era solito recitare una preghiera, probabilmente la stessa a lui attribuita, Ave sanctissima Maria. Nella basilica di San Pietro Sisto IV aveva commissionato la realizzazione di una cappella dedicata all’Immacolata Concezione dotata d’un coro di dieci cantori che garantivano la musica nel servizio divino. Il progetto del papa francescano mirava a far in modo che le due più importanti istituzioni musicali della Chiesa fossero vincolate al culto mariano: la cappella Sistina (cappella privata del pontefice fu consacrata all’Assunzione della Vergine, mentre la cappella di San Pietro all’Immacolata Concezione.Per l’affermazione del culto in ambito devozionale, agì con grande efficacia la preghiera Ave sanctissima Maria

    important d’observer les synthèses et le croisement de divers ferments culturels en une zone grise où leurs connotations se fondaient et s'interpénétraient selon une logique dynamique de communication, qui met au premier plan l'élaboration individuelle comme issue de l'intéraction entre plusieurs individus. C'est justement l'intéraction et la “communication” publique ou semi-publique de la dissidence qui caractérise ce qui apparaît comme ayant été une dissension “bruyante” et peu mesurée, où la dissimulation se configurait avant tout dans la sélection des milieux et des occasions où formuler des discours "rebelles" destinés à être rendus publics : l'ostentation de la différence servait à la création d'une identité sociale. Discussions et disputes servaient ainsi de scènes de théâtre dans une ceertaine mesure déresponsabilisantes, espaces libres d'expression, où la dispute théologico-politique constituait une zone franche pour débattre, présenter des convictions et des arguments parfois très audacieux par simple goût de le faire.Il testo considera le caratteristiche del dissenso religioso – soprattutto nelle dimensioni dell’irreligiosità e della miscredenza – a Venezia in un periodo compreso fra la metà del Seicento e gli anni Quaranta del secolo successivo. Un periodo che vede la sovrapposizione continua di brandelli di teorie, idee, convinzioni, che avevano in buona misura perso qualsiasi riferimento al quadro riformato, e vivevano di vita propria. Più che identificare proposizioni o principi appartenenti geneticamente a questa o quella tradizione eterodossa, diventa quindi importante verificare le sintesi e l’incrocio di fermenti culturali diversi in una zona grigia in cui i loro connotati sfumavano e si compenetravano secondo una logica dinamica, di comunicazione, che mette in primo piano l'elaborazione individuale come esito dell'interazione fra più individui.

    The SENTIERI Project represents the first comprehensive analysis of the health impact of residence in National Priority Contaminated Sites (NPCSs). For the first time, it considers three distinct health outcomes: mortality (2003-2010), cancer incidence (1996- 2005) and hospital discharges (2005-2010). The Report includes a commentary explaining methodology and approach, as well as remarks on the causal association between environmental exposures and investigated health outcomes based on the a priori assessments of the epidemiological evidence; the main implications for public health and scientific research priorities are also presented. The approach put forward by SENTIERI was among those sanctioned by the World Health Organization to conduct an initial description of the health status of residents of contaminated sites. Results relating to individual diseases that can be traced back to a single agent, such as asbestiform fibres, can be easily analysed. The Biancavilla NPCS (where the fluoro-edenite asbestiform fibre was found) displays excesses of pleural mesothelioma and its proxy, malignant pleural tumours, as does Priolo, where asbestos coexists with other pollutants. Increased risk was also recorded in NPCSs adjacent to the coast hosting harbour areas (such as Trieste, Taranto and Venice) or comprising industrial areas specialising in the production of chemicals (Laguna di Grado e Marano, Priolo and Venezia) and steel (Taranto, Terni, Trieste). Increases of pathologies, such as cancer and respiratory diseases, connected to more than one agent, in industrial sites with multiple and diverse sources of exposures, prove harder to interpret. There are also more complex cases in which results do not appear consistent in the three databases or by gender (such as lung cancer in Venice, where mortality and hospital discharges have only increased among women). In order to adequately examine these we must consider factors such as the appropriateness of the health outcome

Il fenomeno della riqualificazione dei waterfront – ormai esteso ad una dimensione globale e che vede coinvolte le grandi città come quelle di medie e piccole dimensione in tutti i continenti – è in molti casi il vero punto di partenza e motore trainante dello sviluppo di intere porzioni di città – se non delle città stesse – riposizionandole in modo innovativo nel contesto internazionale. Il Centro Città d’Acqua di Venezia, alla luce dei suoi vent’anni di attività di monitoraggio e ricerca di ‘buone pratiche’ in questo ambito, intende porre l’accento sul tema della riqualificazione del waterfront, con particolare attenzione ad un’ottica internazionale, sviluppando al contempo un’analisi che tenga conto degli elementi di successo ma anche di alcuni punti di criticità di questo fenomeno. I casi-studio selezionati dimostrano, ciascuno con la propria specificità, come una convivenza sostenibile tra porto e città, sintetizzata nei 10 Principi per lo sviluppo sostenibile delle aree di waterfront urbano (Città d’Acqua, 2000, sia il cardine di una trasformazione allargata e condivisa da cui possano scaturire ricadute positive a scala urbana e territoriale.In the wide and complex panorama of urban transformation, waterfront revitalization is one of the most interesting phenomena of urban renewal of the last decades, bringing ‘cities on water’ around the world to a new leadership. After years of oblivion, the presence of the natural element –water – have shown to be of great appeal as an attractive pole for the quality of every day’s life. In particular, the

    Dinaric Karst is one of the largest karst regions in Europe and in the World. It is the paramount karst of Europe and type site of many karst features. Dinaric Karst Area covers an extensive part of the Dinarides, a mountain chain in Southern Europe named after Dinara Mt., an impressive and outstanding rocky wall on the border between Dalmatian part of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Dinaric Karst occupies an area from the Friuli Plain (Doberdo Karst Plateau) and Slovenian mountains near Postojna cave on the northwest, to Skadar Lake and Prokletije Mt. on the southeast, from Central Bosnian Mountains on the northeast, and the Adriatic Sea seafloor with its islands. The Dinarides outspread in a so-called "Dinaric strike" (NW-SE) for 650 km in length and are up to 150 km wide across SW-NE. The biggest part of the Dinaric Karst Area is situated within Croatian territory (continental, Adriatic coastal and seafloor karst) comprising all karst features with exceptional examples exposed on the surface as well as in the underground. Classical karst area is the one situated in Slovenia, where typical karst features were described for the first time. Presentation of the outstanding values of Dinaric karst is based on the values that can be met in Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Albania, too. Dinaric Karst is the World's natural heritage because of its unique and outstanding geological characteristics and its living world; some of them are of outstanding natural beauty. Dinaric karst is an integral, compact karst area with extremely great thickness of carbonate rocks of predominantly Mesozoic age which in some areas exceeds 8.000 m. It bears several cycles of karstification thus giving world uniqueness to the area, especially regarding the wealth of submerged karst phenomena, among which vruljes are world unique features. Dinaric karst is one of the largest karst regions in the World. From the scientific perspective, the Dinaric Karst is one of
