6 Abstract for dissemination activities
The term “Geoheritage” apply to sites or areas of geologic features with significant scientific,
educational, cultural, or aesthetic value. The multidisciplinary research project “PROGEOPiemonte” aims to achieve a new conceptual and operational discipline in the management of the
geological heritage of the Piemonte Region by means of the development of techniques for
recognizing and managing its rich geodiversity at the local and regional scale. Our assumption is
that Geoheritage sites (“geosites”) can serve both the public and private interests. After a systematic
review of inventoried geosites, 9 strategic geothematic areas will be investigated to represent the
geodiversity of Piemonte, each characterized by high potential for scientific studies, enhancement
of public understanding of science, recreation activities and for economic support to local
communities. Specialized research teams will analyze critical aspects to advancing knowledge
about the geological history of the Piemonte Region, climate and environmental changes, natural
hazards, soil processes and georesources. Scientific concepts and techniques will be coupled with
geodiffusion interests and products: not only geosites but also museum collections, evidences of
mining activity and quarrying, science exhibits and nature trails. Action plans will be developed
with local partners to determine management requirements. A series of experiments will be carried
out to evaluate best solutions for visual representation of geological processes and evolutionary
scenarios. Outcomes of the project will include didactic tools for educators, schools and public in
general. The recognition of the economic value of geodiversity will lead to the production of
regional guidelines for Geoconservation and Geosites integrated quality management system,
suitable for tourism and sustainable development strategies. An international advisory board will
evaluate yearly project advancements, proposed strategies and products.
6 Riassunto del progetto per scopi divulgativi
Il termine “geoheritage” (patrimonio geologico) si riferisce a siti o aree ove sono conservati
elementi geologici di valore scientifico, educativo, estetico e culturale. Il progetto multidisciplinare
“PROGEO-Piemonte” ha lo scopo di proporre un approccio concettuale e operativo innovativo per
la gestione del patrimonio geologico piemontese. La premessa è che i siti in cui tale patrimonio è
conservato (“geositi”) abbiano un interesse sia pubblico che privato. Dopo la revisione dei geositi
già censiti, saranno analizzate 9 aree geotematiche, ritenute strategiche per la loro ricaduta
sull’avanzamento delle conoscenze scientifiche, sulla consapevolezza della popolazione e
sull’economia locale. Gruppi di ricerca specializzati incrementeranno le conoscenze scientifiche
sull’evoluzione geologica del Piemonte, sui passati cambiamenti climatici ed ambientali, sui rischi
naturali, sui processi pedogenetici e sulle georisorse. Le conoscenze acquisite saranno divulgate al
pubblico non specialistico; tale attività si concentrerà non solo sui geositi, ma anche su collezioni
museali e sull’attività mineraria e sarà implementata dalla progettazione di mostre e di percorsi
naturalistici. L’attività verrà svolta in collaborazione con partners territoriali qualificati (ecomusei
ecc..) al fine di esplicitare le esigenze di gestione del patrimonio. Il progetto prevede lo sviluppo di
tecniche per la rappresentazione visiva dei processi geologici e predisporrà strumenti didattici utili
per la divulgazione della conoscenza geologica, che verranno utilizzati da insegnanti delle scuole e,
più in generale, dal pubblico non specialistico. Il valore economico della geodiversità, valutata a
livello locale e regionale, sfocerà nella produzione di linee guida per la Geoconservazione e la
gestione integrata dei geositi. Un comitato scientifico internazionale valuterà ogni anno lo stato di
avanzamento del progetto, la validità delle strategie proposte e dei relativi prodotti.

2) Research activities
Dr. Giardino is a geomorphologist whose research activities focus on:
• earth surface processes, particularly those of mountain regions, including glacial and fluvial
environments;
• the “static” (lithostructural) and “dynamic” (tectonic and climatic) factors conditioning the
evolution of mountainous relief and hydrographic networks;
• natural hazards and risks, particularly those related to instability phenomena of the abovementioned environments;
• techniques and applications for geoheritage management.
These activities were mainly conducted in the European Alps, in addition to the Rocky Mountains

11 Project background (rationale and preliminary findings)
“Geoheritage” is a generic but descriptive term applied to sites or areas of geologic features with
significant scientific, educational, cultural, or aesthetic value (O’Halloran et Al., 1994). The
geoheritage concept is based on an advanced consideration of Earth’s processes and materials: not
only geologic features such as distinctive rocks or mineral types, unique or rare fossils, but other
attractive Earth characteristics or distinctive geological “objects” that bear value for better
understanding the history of our planet, such as a form of the landscape with peculiar and
significant geomorphologic attributes, which qualifies it as a component of the cultural patrimony
of a territory. For these reasons many geoheritage sites can be tourist destinations and provide local
and regional economic benefits (Knudsen et Al., 2008).
Geoheritage is part of the landscape whose meaning encompasses an area, as perceived by people,
whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors (from the
European landscape convention of Firenze 2000). For correctly addressing a geoheritage study,
researchers need to break down landscape into its main parts and to detect the variables and
mechanisms that controlled its evolution; in particular, among physical variables of the landscape
system, geology rules and influences both superficial and underground features and also affects the
natural and artificial components of a territory. From the scientific point of view, all varieties of
rocks, minerals and landforms that characterize a landscape and the processes which have formed
these features throughout geological time are indicated as “geodiversity”, and are considered the
basis for the biological biodiversity on Earth (Panizza & Piacente, 2003).
In the scientific literature several papers concern the development of different techniques for
identifying and managing geodiversity at the national, international and global scale (Serrano &
Ruiz Flano, 1995; Ellis et Al., 1996; Erikstad, 1999; Wimbledon, 1999). Since management of any
natural heritage requires a balance between the need to protect and enhance the natural heritage and
the legitimate needs of local populations or visitors, a European Working Group for Earth Sciences
Conservation was created on 1988, then (1993) transformed in the ProGEO association, devoted to
geodiffusion activities and to the establishment of an international network for geosite inventory
and conservation. A similar working group was created within the International Union of
Geoscience (IUGS), whose outreach activities were the “Geosites” (global inventory of sites of
geological interest) and “Geoparks” (a UNESCO partnership for promoting territories containing
geosites).
The site-based approach has worked extremely well for geoconservation (Wimbledon et Al., 1999)
although geosites cannot by themselves maintain and enhance geodiversity. If complemented by a
“geothematic area” approach, however, the benefits to geoconservation can be enormous through
the protection of topographical character, restoration of geomorphological processes and the
creation of new exposures in important geological units. Scientific site assessment and selection is
therefore an essential part of geological conservation, yet it serves only to provide a framework
around which to build. Truly successful geological conservation also requires strong legislation,
conservation-friendly policies, practices, and action plans, an active geological/conservation
community, and activities aimed to raising awareness of the importance of our geological heritage
and the need to conserve it, amongst both decision makers and the public.
In the case of the Piedmont region, the diversity of its geological heritage, that is known worldwide
thanks to thousands of scientific publications produced by Italian and international research teams
(e.g. Wezel, 2003), may serve to illustrate the concepts expressed above. This geological heritage
that includes remnants of a typical collisional belt composed of stacked, deeply metamorphosed,
continental and oceanic units, post collisional sedimentary basins developed in a highly mobile
geodynamic setting, and Quaternary landforms and deposits related to recent exogenetic processes,
represents a cultural and environmental wealth that must be diffused, preserved and valorized not
only for education and scientific reasons but also for economic interests.
An innovative “visual” approach can be proposed for the assessment and management of the
geoheritage of the Piemonte Region (Fig. 1 a-e) by considering both its geographical/administrative
components (a), and geological diversity (b). Earth scientists use different colors to highlight
different geological units belonging to different geoenvironments, in term of distinctive processes,
materials and position in the earth structure: a regional geodiversity whose analogue can be
individualized in the disassembled Rubik cube (c). By operating selection (d) and re-assemblage (e)
of geological and territorial components of the geodiversity, proper activities of geoheritage
promotion and management can be developed, with a balance between natural heritage protection
and the needs of local populations or visitors.
The ingredients for developing a balanced framework of activity in the Piemonte Region are offered
by:
- a rich, multidisciplinary academic approach by several teams of investigators from the University
of Torino. The interaction of different departments (Earth Sciences, Mineralogical and Petrological
Sciences, Plant Biology, Economics Commodity Science, and Informatics) can boost either
scientific knowledge and the achievement of a new conceptual and operational discipline in the
management of the geological heritage of the Piemonte Region.
- the Regional Geosite Inventory by the Documentation Centre for Geodiversity and
Geoconservation (Regional Natural Sciences Museum, Turin) whose bibliographic research allowed
to obtain 629 records of potential geosites scattered throughout the region. Just sligthly more than
half have sufficient information to proceed with a structured inventory and assessment. The
remaining still need documentation, potentially provided by the Academic community involved in
the project.
- A series of local partners (public administrations, natural parks and local museums, cultural
institutions) that are already involved in projects aimed to promote geodiversity. Experiments could
be carried out to evaluate best solutions for visual representation of geological landforms and
processes, and new didactic tools for educators, schools and public in general. Action plans could
be developed with local partners to determine management requirements. The recognition of the
economic value of geodiversity could lead to the production of Geoconservation guidelines for the
Regione Piemonte, including planning considerations, and tourism and sustainable development
strategies.
12 Project description (specific aims, design, methods, time
schedule of study/experiments)
Natural heritage in the territory of Piemonte is already being protected in a broad sense by a
network of parks and several actions have been developed for enhancing the regional biodiversity.
Nevertheless, the concept of geodiversity is less well appreciated, and we aim to contribute to his
dissemination, because we think that all the variety of rocks, minerals and landforms and the
processes which have formed these features throughout geological time are the essential
cornerstones for the development of biodiversity.
In this perspective, our project aims to achieve a new comprehensive conceptual and operational
discipline in the management of the geological heritage of the Piemonte Region by means of the
development of techniques for recognizing and managing geodiversity at the local and regional
scale. Our assumption is that geoheritage sites (“geosites”) can serve both the public and private
interests, so we will sustain geosite contribution to the quality of life in the Piemonte region by:
- identifying symbols of the Piemonte geoheritage, with large numbers of visitors attracted, in order
to stimulate respect for nature;
- conducting advanced scientific researches on geosites to enhance regional Earth Sciences
knowledge;
- enhancing the awareness on natural resources or hazards;
- promoting geosites as valuable products – not only as commercial material resources, but also as
cultural and geotouristic assets bringing enjoyment to individuals;
- elaborating strategies for driving economical support to local communities responsible for
geoheritage management.
Our project is designed to operate through several steps of activity of a multidisciplinary research
group:
1) review and improvements of the regional geosite inventory;
2) assessment of main thematic areas of Piemonte geodiversity;
3) specialized analysis on related critical issues of Earth Sciences knowledge;
4) experiments on visual representation of geological environments and processes;
5) development of geodiversity action plans including educational impacts;
6) promotion of a 'geodiversity economics'.
1) The foundations of our project are in the Regional Geosite Inventory by the Documentation
Centre for Geodiversity and Geoconservation (Regional Natural Sciences Museum, Turin). Based
on its recent cooperative researches with the Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra (University of
Torino) and the Doctoral school of “Earth System Science for Environment, Natural Resource and
Cultural Heritage” (Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia) a critical review of the
inventoried geosites will be performed throughout the first year of the project. Further
improvements will be then added, based on the contribution of researchers from the Dipartimento di
Scienze Mineralogiche e Petrologiche. Methodologies for inventory and evaluation will be updated,
and new available data will contribute both to a better homogeneous geographic distribution of
geosites, and the recognition of new strategic areas to be studied in Piemonte (fig.2).
2) Since geodiversity is a complex matter with a disassembled character, either for its variegated
geological contents or its disperse distribution due to landscape fragmentation, our concept here is
to reassemble it by using key-themes. Based on preliminary findings from the Regional Geosite
Inventory, nine (9) strategic “geothematic areas” have been individualized to offer a complete
representation of the geodiversity of Piemonte (Fig. 3).
Each “geothematic area” is characterized by high potential for scientific studies, enhancement of
public understanding of science, recreation activities and for economic support to local
communities. Assessment of geodiversity contents of each area will be conducted to extract useful
contents to be re-organized for different possible points of view (accessibility, Earth Sciences
contents, climato-touristic indexes) either within the same area or by criss-crossing different
themes.
3) Specialized research teams of different scientific backgrounds (Structural Geology, Sedimentary
Geology-Stratigraphy-Paleontology, Petrography, Mineralogy, Physical GeographyGeomorphology, Lichenology) will analyze critical aspects to advancing knowledge on the
geological history of Piemonte, climate and environmental changes, natural hazards, soil processes
and georesources. The research activities will be conducted preferably within the 2 first years of the
project, based on the geodiversity contents of each geothematic area, as shown by fig. 4.
The multidisciplinary character of the project offers a wide range of scientific methods and
instruments to be applied in the research:
- bibliographic and historical documentation (museums, technical archives);
- chemical, physical and isotopic analysis of waters;
- crystal chemical analyses;
- digital techniques and Information Technologies (IT) applications (remote sensing, GIS,
Geomatics);
- fieldworks: geological, stratigraphic, structural, geomorphologic and hydrogeological surveys and
mapping; logging and sampling;
- geochemical and fluid inclusion studies;
- integrated sedimentological, physical stratigraphic, biomagnetostratigraphic, cyclostratigraphic,
and paleontologic studies;
- meteorologic data analyses;
- microanalyses by microXRF, XRD, µ-Raman spectroscopy, SEM-EDS;
- microscopical and molecular techniques to identify the rock-dwelling organisms;
- petrographic and mineralogical studies (transmitted and reflected light optical microscopy,
cathodoluminescence);
- petrologic modeling;
- photogrammetric analyses;
- structural analyses;
- structural and morphological micro-investigations by SEM and TEM-EDS;
- TIQMS (Territorial Integrated Quality) analysis, supported by Scatol8TM system.
A Geographical Information System will be structured by Geositlab (GIS and Geomatics
Laboratory, University of Torino) for the PROGEO-Piemonte data collection and management. The
integrated use of pictures, maps and field data from different sources will be enhanced by the use of
GPS and palm-PCs with dedicated Mobile-GIS software SRG2 (Univ. of Torino), providing a
customized interface for Earth Science data collection. Spatial analysis techniques such as remote
sensing, digital and traditional photogrammetry, GPS and laser scanning, will be performed with the
technical support of ImaGEO spin-off of the University of Torino, thereby offering multi-scale
analysis through integration within a GIS framework.
4) A series of experiments will be carried out during the 3 years project to evaluate best solutions
for visual representation of geological processes and present/past evolutionary scenarios of
landscapes. With the support of Virtual Reality MultiMedia Park (VRMMP) we will focus on 3D
virtual environments with interactive and immersive audiovisual interfaces, which can shed light
over many issues concerning geodiversity and geoheritage.
In particular, we will adopt the paradigm of real-time 3D computer graphics to re-create credible
scenarios of the geothematic areas individuated in the project. For each area, we will create a virtual
scene and design a few interactive environments for the exploration of the areas. The working
pipeline we will follow is shown in Fig. 5, where we can find the name of the step on top, the result
formats in the middle, and the relative software at bottom. From a scientifically authored height
maps, i.e. images that map a light intensity representation to the data elevation of some area, we
elaborate a scene that includes the appropriate color masks and light maps; then, we elaborate the
real—time graphic materials to be associated with the scene surfaces, and, finally, we import the
complete scene in the interactive environment MESH for designing the visualization application
and capturing the introductory video.
In this project phase, we will work in collaboration with the VRMMP Park, which maintains the
MESH environment. VRMMP has already worked in partnership with some participants to this
project on the Multi-vision project “Turin: history of a city”, sponsored by the Torino Musei
Foundation and exposed at Palazzo Madama in Turin. In that project, VRMMP has produced a
video on the pre-historic phases of the city (see a screenshot in Fig. 6).
We will work involving Earth Scientists, graphic designers, and computer scientists, to devise
virtual environments that represent the most relevant data about the phenomena at hand. The
environment will address scientific as well as aesthetic interest, so interpreting the geo-heritage
project in a wide sense. From such interactive environments, we will also conceive a linear video of
a few minutes to synthesize the most relevant findings for promotional and learning purposes
(Tufte, 1983).
5) For the development of geodiversity action plans during the second half of the project, a
selection is needed within the studied geosites. Our preliminary choice has been devoted to sites
being part of relevant geothematic areas: they offer a system of relationships between the
environmental and human history, and can be easily understood by a broad public. Further selection
will be done by applying an interpretative model of geosites based on their targeted fruition (Fig. 7)
.
Geological literacy of children, young persons and adults will have a deep impact on every day life
and on our future. We will produce didactic materials for future science exhibits (e.g. European
Researcher's Night; “ScopriAlpi” in the Alpi Cozie Geopark), where we will share PROGEOPiemonte projects results with visitors through interactive demonstrations, such as: plate tectonics
experiments; models of slope instabilities; the fossil record and the reconstruction of past climate
changes; explore the decorative stones of Torino's historical buildings; awareness of fibrous mineral
(asbestos) and mineral particles impacts on health; classifying mineral collection by using the five
senses. The produced material could be shared with teachers for local school projects and natural
science museums of Piemonte. Moreover, outcomes of the project will include didactic tools for
educators, schools and public in general, such as real and virtual geological tracks, interactive
websites and training courses for geonaturalistic guides.
Long-term objectives and short-term targets for geodiffusion actions will meet the requirements of
local communities in the geothematic areas. Local partners will offer human and financial resources
for the achievement of the geodiffusion objectives.
6) The economic value to society of environmental goods and services is now being recognised
world-wide as a result of economic analysis. It underpins or overarches much geodiversity work
because the economic dimension leads directly into a range of management issues including
local/regional planning considerations, tourism and sustainable development strategies in general.
The use of a large data set of climatic data can represent an important source of information for the
influential fallout on the tourism economy. It allows in fact to analyze the climate as a resource,
particularly where its variability is stronger for the differences in altitude and slope orientation, the
existence of xerothermic areas and the variation of height and frequency of rainfall (Biancotti and
Fratianni, 2005). In this regard, it will be necessary to identify the climatic-touristic indices
(qualitative and numeric) that express values and ranges within which the meteorological variables
and most appropriate weather types encouraging tourism outdoors should vary. So, after playing a
climatic characterization of the sites chosen, it can be considered for example the number of “hiking
favourable days” (combined index that takes into account insulation, thermal sensation, thermohygrometric complex, visibility, wind speed, precipitation, ...). The exploration of “climate fields”
will allow to exploit the peculiarities of each locality examined, thus becoming useful for
development.
The TIQMS, Territorial Integrated Quality Management System (Beltramo & Duglio, 2010), by the
Dipartimento di Scienze Merceologiche (DSM) will be tested in a geosite, and used in the project
development: it will allow to analyze a territory management from different points of view,
connected to quality, climate, environment, landscape, occupational health and safety, social
responsibility (following the ISO standards) and the European Landscape Convention.
Main steps: a) Territorial integrated analysis, expressed by indicators about aspects considered to
check the relationships between human activities and environment (to manage data, it would be
used Scatol8TM (Beltramo, 2010), a remote sensing system developed by DSM that would be
updated for gathering, storing, representing and sending data for analysis of geoheritage
components). b) Planning of the system. c) Documentary system. d) Evaluation about a possibility
of certification. e) Possible extension to other geosites. f) Guidelines to the territorial integrated
quality of geosites (as a guide for touristic operators).
The recognition of the economic value of geodiversity will lead to the proposal of Geoconservation
guidelines for the Regione Piemonte, including planning considerations, and tourism and
sustainable development strategies in general.
All the PROGEO-Piemonte activities will be included in the framework of the national network of
the Italian Geosites Project by ISPRA. Scientific results will be discussed within the activities of the
Working Group "Geomorphosites" of the International Association of Geomorphologists and the
scientific committee of the Associazione Italiana di Geologia e Turismo and the Association of
European Geological Societies. Field researches and dissemination activities will be strongly
supported by public and private partners such as: IMAGEO spin off company of the University of
Torino; LaTUNO society for the management of ScopriAlpi and ScopriMiniera initiatives;
"Conferenza Alte Valli" C.H.A.V. association of Italian and French Mountain local communities,
leader of the Alpi Cozie GeoPark ALCOTRA PIT project (2007-13) "Le Alti Valli: la montagna fa
sistema".
An international advisory board will operate in order to offer yearly evaluation of project
advancement and to assess the effectiveness of the proposed management strategies and educational
processes. Prof Emmanuel Reynard (Lausanne University; chair of Working Group
"Geomorphosites" of the International Association of Geomorphologists), Dr. Cristina Giovagnoli
(ISPRA-Dipartimento difesa della Natura, Tutela del Patrimonio geologico, project leader of Italian
Geosites Project), Prof. Mario Panizza, University of Modena, past president of International
Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) and Associazione Italiana di Geologia e Turismo) accepted
to be part of the PROGEO-Piemonte Advisory Board.
