Il 23 marzo e 16 aprile 2020 ho tenuto un corso integrativo sull’Applicazione di metodi partecipati alla progettazione di interventi di tutela e valorizzazione interdisciplinare del cielo notturno per gli studenti del corso di Composizione Architettonica per la Laurea in Ingegneria Edile-Architettura dell’Università di Brescia (docente prof. Olivia Longo).
Il corso ha costituito lo sviluppo del convegno tenuto sullo stesso tema nel maggio 2019, con riconoscimento di crediti formativi professionali per ingegneri e architetti, sempre all’Università di Brescia. Durante il corso c’è stato anche un saluto
Since October 2017 I am providing IT support to IRIS Ambiente for the design of trails. The support includes production of digital maps, report automation and spatial analysis via Geographic Information Systems.
The Farma Valley Community Map was created by using as a base map the current Tuscan administration official base maps (1:10000 scale), interviewing the elders of the three villages (Torniella, Piloni, and Scalvaia), in order to document points of interest and other information which does not exist in the official maps, but is relevant for the locals.
The toponyms thus produced are also published on the Regione Toscana Open Data Portal.
Following a first data base created in 2015, the work saw a second round of activity during the 2016-2017 Winter. In 2017 the map is undergoing several integrations and additions.
The project is a combination of awareness raising, participatory light pollution monitoring, and promotion of dark-sky areas.
It is primarily focused on Italy in terms of monitoring area, but operates on an international scale in terms of vision and relations.
The project includes a web-GIS for an interface for data upload, visualization, reporting, and download. The project also has a robust communication plan, including numerous outreach events in Italy and abroad.
The project has undergone several phases:
Feb. – May 2008: Idea and design (Giacomelli, Giubbilini, Delucchi)
Summer 2008 – Spring 2011: activities in a “non structured” mode (Giacomelli, Giubbilini, Delucchi)
Spring 2011 – end of 2012: continuation of the activity with the creation of Attivarti.org as a managing organisation, and launch of the CORDILIT network (fixed rather than hand-held sensors). (Giacomelli, Giubbilini, Costa, Lombardelli)
Early 2013 – end of 2016: in addition to the work under the Attivarti.org hat, we were invited in the Loss of the Night Network (ES-1204 Action of the EU COST programme), with the role of primary Management Committee member representing Italy. (Giacomelli, Spinosi, Pocci, Bartalucci)
Following the Farma Valley Winter Fest, the project enters a phase, currently under definition during Winter 2016-2017. This is currently referred to as “BuioMetria Partecipativa Reloaded”.
In May 2017 a memorandum of understanding was signed between Attivarti.org (the NGO managing the non-profit part of the project) and the Institute of Biometeorology of the Italian Research Council. This follows a similar document signed with the University of Pisa at the end of 2015 (see article on the International Journal of Sustainable Lighting, Feb. ’17).
A presentation of the project for the Municipality of Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, South of Pisa, concerning the revision of some 80 km of trekking network.
The project implied a series of GPS surveys, the creation of a GIS data set combining the survey with pre-existing cartography, update photographic documentation, and the creation of a maintenance plan highlighting priority actions and more long-term activities for the promotion of the network.
