Italian Geological Society

The Italian Geological Society is a non-profit association. Founded in Bologna on September 29, 1881 and declared Ente Morale by Royal Decree of October 17, 1885, is the oldest Italian scientific association operating in the field of Earth Sciences.

Its purpose is the progress, promotion and dissemination of geological knowledge in their theoretical and applicative aspects and currently has about 1300 members in Italy and abroad, 14 active sections and a Documentation Center at the Geotechnology Center of the University of Siena.

The 90th Congress of the Italian Geological Society, whose motto is “Geologia Senza Confini” (Geology without Borders), wants to be a hope for an exchange of knowledge among researchers, not only Italian, to promote and strengthen the Earth Sciences, a discipline more and more necessary and projected into the future.

The Earth Sciences should be understood not only as necessary for the better understanding of the interior of the planet Earth, but also as a defense of society from dangerous geological events, for the understanding of climate change, for the planning and use of geo-resources in an ethical way and in respect and protection of the environment. For this reason, the Italian Geological Society has decided to support the reforestation of Bosco Sacile, one of the last ancient forests of the Friulian plain, and of the Enego forests, heavily affected by Storm Vaia in 2018.
