Subject of the call:

Natural stones are the main actors of our architectural and artistic culture. The historical buildings of Italian towns and the masterpieces of classic and Renaissance art continuously remind us the importance that these materials have for our history and identity. Today natural materials go on being of most importance for our culture, representing an important source for constructing valuable work. The use of natural stones, nowadays, must be faced with a new awareness, as regards the value, the modernity and durability of the works, but even the protection of the territory, the need to have care of the material from its extraction to its eventual disposal. This poster session is dedicated to all the issues related to the potentialities and the complexities related to the world of natural stones, such as:

  • use of the natural stones for new buildings, art pieces and settings;
  • safety related to the stone extraction, transportation, manufacturing and works;
  • use of stone for interventions in historical art and cultural heritage;
  • recovery/reuse/enhancement of stone quarries;
  • circular use of the stone, from extraction to use and disposal;
  • conservation/restoration/enhancement of stone artifacts
  • “travelling stones:” the journey of natural stones for the realization of past and present artifacts (art, architecture, urban interventions, design)
  • new technologies and natural stones: solutions, uses and applications for architecture and design
  • stone quarry as a tourist must-see: museums, visitor center, and galleries
  • stone quarry and its territory yesterday and today: impacts of the mining activities in the lands, the relation with the communities, industrial architecture
  • classic and contemporary design: multiple uses of the natural stones

Each proposed research theme should have a multidisciplinary approach, facing at least three of the mentioned topics, and it has to be exposed through a poster, whose layout is described in the website in the section: (>Participating>Poster Submission).
