We are pleased to announce that the PPUR article in the Special Publication series of the Geological Society of London has just appeared, for now only as an e-print.
It is also, at least for now, the last signed by Giovanni Badino.
Badino started publishing very young, when he was still a high school student: in fact his first print work appeared, in 1971, on Stalactites and Stalagmites, Bulletin of the Savonese Speleological Group, which he had recently started attending.
he annual meeting of the La Venta Association took place in Perugia on the 13th and 14th of January. On this occasion, an evening was also organized to present the main projects of the association, which saw the participation of many cavers friends from central Italy and not, all in the memory of Giovanni Badino, for whom was presented, for the first time, the bibliography. A collection of hundreds of works that allows us to understand only a small part of the enormity of the work done by Giovanni in decades of research and scientific dissemination.
Cari amici, come ogni anno La Venta sarà a presente al Raduno Internazionale di Speleologia di Finale Ligure dal 1 al 5 Novembre 2017. Potrete trovarci nel cuore di Finalborgo nel bellissimo complesso monumentale di Santa Caterina dove potrete visitare la mostra "I colori del Buio ".
The earthquakes that recently struck Mexico, as everyone has seen from TV and newspapers have caused huge damages due to their violence (7.2 degrees in Chiapas and 8.1 in the center of the country).
Due to the temporal proximity and geographical localization of the two events, especially the second shock in Mexico City, most of the media paid attention to the capital as a consequence of the aid works that have focused there. It almost seemed, even just watching TV, that only that metropolis was hit.
