At war with the eagles represents the first national event organized by the History of Geosciences Section, established in 2012 by the Italian Geological Society in order to recover and endorse the national geological culture. A century after the Italian intervention in the First World War, the meeting focuses on the role of geologists and cartographers on the alpine fronts, before, during and after hostilities. This short note briefly describes the history and purposes of the Geoitaliani project that aims to revitalize the importance of geology in the past as a basis for the future development of our Nation and the human journey on Planet Earth. © 2015 Societa Geologica Italiana, Roma.

The scope of the project is to develop and test methods for designing and implementing innovative and sustainable Strategic Plans for Waste Prevention and Management in various urban contexts that will enhance urban environmental resilience and guarantee progress towards more sustainable production and consumption patterns together with improvements waste recovery and recovered materials use. Urban_Wins will define a data set, based on material flow indicators, capable of supporting and orienting decision making processes for urban waste prevention and management. Knowledge of the factors that influence the metabolism of cities will be improved together with the understanding of how those factors can be transformed in positive drivers of technological, non-technological and governance changes. The information set produced by the consortium will also focus on how a more efficient use of resources and a better management of waste can improve urban quality and citizens welfare, key points for urban stakeholders involvement, both in the planning and implementation of actions. The proposal reunites diverse actors such as cities, research institutes and universities, environmental NGOs, IT&C, technological innovation and waste management companies, professional associations that represent EU regions, sectors and levels of governance. The complex partnership guarantees that advancement in EU research in the field of urban metabolism and waste management strategies is directly linked to stakeholder engagement and mutual learning and contributes to the achievement of resource efficiency and waste management objectives. Urban_Wins analytical tools will be built on the base of datasets and experiences of 24 EU cities from 6 European countries and the Strategic Plans will be tested by 8 EU cities and will encompass regulatory measures, educational initiatives and sector specific actions.

In this short note we propose the storytelling of Colonel Pompeo Moderni, a soldier and a geologist, and of his family's troubles during the Great War. Pompeo worked as a field geologist in the Royal Geological Survey of Italy, contributing to scientific exploration and mapping of Central Apennines; in 1915, already elderly aged, he faced indirectly war operations, suffering the loss of his young only son Mario on the eastern front. Colonel Moderni personal story is thus remembered in order to honour the memory of all those people, on both sides, involved in the first great tragedy of the 20th century. © 2015 Societa Geologica Italiana, Roma.
