Analisi geologico-tecniche per la progettazione dello scavo nell'Insula Occidentalis
In: Storia della tecnica edilizia e restauro dei monumenti: 15, 2020
As part of the Convention stipulated between the Federico II University and the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, further research into the coupled engineering-geological and geo-archaeological aspects of a representative sector of the front of the Insula Occidentalis was carried out, in the area of the excavations of Pompeii. Investigations with non-invasive techniques allowed to reconstruct the geometric relationships between the ancient masonry structures, the volcanoclastic deposits of 79 A.D. eruption and those preceding it. Based on this engineering-geological and geo-archaeological model, stability issues related to the continuation of excavation activities were analysed.
