The case study is the Metropolitan Area of Bari, one of the metropolitan cities indicated by the reform of the italian provinces, as planned by Law nr. 56 of 7th of April 2014 “Dispositions on the metropolitan cities, provinces and unions or fusions of municipalities (Legge Delrio)”, that imagines, for ten metropolitan cities in Italy, the construction of an administrative and institutional process that could innovate the metropolitan territories with a strategic development approach. The new “Terri

The Italian traditional field of dimension stone is currently experiencing a growing interest toward the application of the sustainability principles. In this framework, the main aim of this ongoing PhD project is to create a flexible tool able to support the environmental assessments of Italian stone companies. The methodology is aligned with the Life Cycle Approach and it analyses the cradle-to-gate production chain of both soft stones (marbles) and hard stones (granites). Because of the lack, in LCA data

The still ongoing studies on the geology of the Apuan Alps show the presence of a deformational event which is developed in the late-metamorphic to post-metamorphic conditions (D3), that has occurred on the previous structures and has created the low-angle shear zones and high-angle faults, associated with both right hand and left hand complicated movement systems. These shear zones represent a new element in the geological landscape of the Apuan Alps, and our knowledge about them is deducted from the infor

“Less material” could be the principle that guides the archetypal action tending towards the essential form, an action of subtraction of the material in search of a stronger, immediate and convincing idea. For example, the words of Auguste Rodin “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need” or the words of Michelangelo Buonarroti “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free” go in the same direction. This paper will investigate the “diverse sensitivity”

Raw Materials, whose availability is increasingly under pressure, are essential for the EU economy: Europe is strongly interested in “resource preservation” and, furthermore, several researches are focused on the recovering of Critical Raw Materials and aggregate supply from landfill (“waste recycling”). On the other hand, quarry waste represents an enormous loss of resources and causes economic and environmental cost increase due to waste management and landfill activities. A significant part of qu

The study describes the most effective way of using wheel loaders at typical Ukrainian dimension stone deposits, and shows the economic benefits of their use. The loading and transportation of commercial blocks (LTB) and waste products (LTW) are analyzed, using respectively 4 and 3 alternative techniques. The most eligible techniques are then selected. It has been found that financial expenses for LTB can be reduced using the wheel loader for all operations. As regards the expenses related to LTW, the use o

Since ancient times marble has been the most praised material due to its multi-use possibilities. The investigation conducted by the authors started several years ago with the aim to outline the study of industrial applications for marble dust deriving from marble processing plants as calcium carbonate. The matter of fact is that this stone slurry is composed primarily of calcium carbonate and has a great potential as secondary raw material or byproduct, although it has up to now been considered as waste an

The aim of this paper is to show the results of a research work related to a different way for manage stone districts, in order to obtain environmental improvements. The extraction and the processing of natural stone imply a considerable environmental impact, both on the production area and at the global scale, with a consequent penalization of the environmental profile of the lytic products. The research highlights the potential role that a "district" can play on the radical transformation of the current p

Puglia occupies a significant position in national and international fields for the production and trade of ornamental stone for both quantity and quality. The ornamental Apulian stones, thanks to the recognition of their good technical and aesthetic characteristics, have undergone considerable commercial development determined not only by the relative ease of extraction that makes them economically competitive. The trend toward a planning policy that takes into account less land use could mean a reduction

Nowadays digital photogrammetry based on Structure from Motion (SfM) algorithms represents a low-cost and rapid technique for the tridimensional detection and mapping of large areas of particular geologic-geomorphologic and environmental interest. In this case study, we use images captured from sensors mounted on a small and inexpensive aircraft for the 3D reconstruction of extraction sites. The aircraft, called RadGyro, is able to deal with morphologically complex zones, as the test area, located in the
