Even the stones speak

volantino Anche le pietre parlano


December 21, the exhibition "Even the stones speak" will open at the Institute IIS Olivelli-Putelli, via Ubertosa 9 - Darfo Boario Terme (BS) organized by Dr. Claudia Principe (IGG-CNR, Archeolab of Villa Borbone, Viareggio).

The aim of the exhibition is to provide the tools to detect the information kept within the rocks, to understand what happened in their “life” and in that of the Earth. All the "stones" have an age and a story and, if we know their language, they can tell us pictures of the Earth’s life, whether they have been ejected from a volcano or deformed in the folds of a mountain or that lie at the bottom of lakes and oceans. For these purposes we used the rocks that most fascinate the man, the ornamental stones, comparing the commercial world with the scientific world of geology. We will tell you what is hidden behind the beauty, the colors and the textures of these materials.
