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.

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.
