Minimum 1D velocity models in Central and Southern Italy: a contribution to better constrain hypocentral determinations
C. Chiarabba,A. Frepoli
Annals of Geophysics , 1997, DOI: 10.4401/ag-3888
Abstract: We computed one-dimensional ( I D) velocity models and station corrections for Centrai and Southern Italy, in- verting re-picked P-wave alTival times recorded by the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica seismic network. The re-picked data yield resolved P-wave velocity results and proved to be more suited than bulletin data for de- tailed tomographic studies. Using the improved velocity models, we relocated the most significant earthquakes which occurt.ed in the Apennines in the past 7 years, achieving constrained hypocentral determinations for events within most of the Apenninic belt. The interpretation of the obtained lD velocity models allows us to infer interesting features on the deep structure of the Apennines. Smooth velocity gradients with depth and low P-wave velocities are ob,'ierved beneath the Apennines. We believe that our results are effective to constrain hypocentral locations in Italy and may represent a first step towards more detailed seismotectonic analyses.
Cambio de rumbo. Interacción comercial entre el Bronce Final atlántico ibérico y micénico en el Mediterráneo Central (1425-1050 a.C.)
Mederos Martín, Alfredo
Trabajos de Prehistoria , 1997,
Abstract: The aim of this work is to present a new interpretation on the commercial exchanges during the Late Bronze Age IC-IIC, c. 1425-I050 BC, between the Western and Central Mediterranean, starting from a review of two types of metallic artefact, axes and swords, originating from the Iberian Peninsula, and present in Sardinia, Sicily and Lazio in the Italian Peninsula. We start from three premises: the calibrated chronology of the Late Bronze Age in the Iberian Peninsula, Sardinia and Sicily-Eolian. Secondly, a more accurate chronology of the Iberian artefacts present in Italian settlements and deposits. And finally, the analysis of the confluence between the Atlantic and Mycenaean trade in the Central Mediterranean, particularly during the Late Bronze Age IC-IIA/Late Helladic IIIA-IIIB, c. 1425-1225 BC, to reveal that the mycenaean pottery presence in Andalusia can not be tried as an isolated phenomenon, but is integrated within the commercial interrelationship that existed between the Western and Eastern Mediterranean around the islands of Sardinia and Sicily in the Central Mediterranean. El objetivo de este trabajo es ofrecer una nueva interpretación sobre los intercambios comerciales durante el Bronce Final IC-IIC, ca. 1425-1050 AC, entre el Mediterráneo Occidental y Central, a partir de una revisión de dos tipos de artefactos metálicos, hachas y espadas, procedentes de la Península Ibérica, y presentes en Cerde a, Sicilia y el Lazio en la Península Italiana. Se parte de tres premisas; la primera, la cronología calibrada del Bronce Final en la Península Ibérica, Cerde a y Sicilia-Eolias. En segundo lugar, un encuadre temporal más preciso de los artefactos ibéricos presentes en los yacimientos y depósitos italianos. Y finalmente, el análisis de la confluencia del comercio atlántico y micénico en el Mediterráneo Central, particularmente durante el Bronce Final IC-IIA/ Heládico Final IIIA-IIIB, ca. 1425-1225 AC, para poner en evidencia que la presencia de cerámicas micénicas en Andalucía no puede tratarse de un fenómeno aislado, sino que se integra dentro de la interrelación comercial que existió entre el Mediterráneo Occidental y Oriental alrededor de las islas de Cerde a y Sicilia del Mediterráneo Central.
Religious Practice among Italian Youth: A Case Study in Lazio  [PDF]
Lucio Meglio
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2012.22012
Abstract: The purpose of this article will be to highlight, through a case study of the Lazio region of Italy to the south of Rome, of the changing role of religion in Western Europe according to recent analyses that have been carried out on the relationship between religion and identity among young people, and the relationship between family structure and composition and religious practices. These issues have also been the topic of discussion among Catholic and Protestant groups in the different member countries and have been a controversial topic in the approval of the European Constitutional Treaty. These issues will be assessed in light of the different meanings of religion in non-European countries, especially in the context of underdevelopment in Africa, where there is not a sharp distinction between religious loyalty and civil society. Belonging to one religion or another tends to affect different types of political and economic loyalties, whereas these are maintained as separate spheres of life in Europe due to its heritage of prolonged civil and religious wars. The article will conclude by pointing out the strong potential for renovation that is implicit in religion—a renovation of values and styles of everyday life that seems to be urgent and necessary to face many dilemmas and problems of contemporary Western life. In this respect, a case will be made that religion can help better than politics and political movements to overcome difficulties and resistances in the necessary adaptation to changing environmental and economic conditions.
T. S. Eliot’s Ekphrastic Poems  [PDF]
Rosanna Rion
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/als.2014.21007

Poems which have been inspired by paintings or mention a pictorial work can be analysed following a long tradition of studies between painting and poetry. Three of Eliot’s early poems: The Love Song of Saint Sebastian, Mr. Eliot’s Sunday Morning Service and On a Portraitare examples of this kind of ekphrastic exercise. There are different kinds of connections between painting and poetry and Eliot uses the iconological elements for different aims. The painters who interested the poet shared in common the fact that they represent a bridge between past and future, not a moment of perfect execution but one of great creativities.

A History of Italian Citizenship Laws during the Era of the Monarchy (1861-1946)  [PDF]
Luca Bussotti
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2016.54014
Abstract: This article aims to present the evolution of Italian citizenship from political unification to the end of the Second World War, which in Italy corresponds with the end of the monarchy and the advent of the Republic. In this long period, the central definition of Italian citizenship was given by the Civil Code (1865), the basis of which was Ius sanguinis and the patrilineal system. The 1912 Law on Citizenship changed some aspects of the previous legislation, but did not alter the general legal scenario, despite great pressure from some organised movements such as those formed by Italian expatriates in the Americas. With the advent of fascism (1922), the discourse on the Italian nation became radicalised, but Mussolini’s regime did not pass any organic laws on citizenship. The innovations introduced under fascism were relatively modest; many were directed towards limiting the rights of particular categories of citizens, such as political opponents and Jewish people. Italy reached the beginning of the republican period with a legal apparatus on citizenship that was very similar to the one established for the first time in the Civil Code of 1865. This shows how Italian political classes have given more attention to the orthodoxy of the law than to the need to adapt it to the numerous transformations in Italian society.
The Italian Intelligence from the Pre-Unification Period to the First World War  [PDF]
Antonella Colonna Vilasi
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2018.81005
Abstract: In the newly formed Kingdom of Italy the first Intelligence operations were focused on the public order protection and the citizens’ security. This analytical, theory-building article examines the pre-existing core of the Italian Intelligence from the pre-unitarian Italian States to the First World War from a different perspective, evaluating the culturally transmitted factors that influence politico-military elites, security communities, and decision-makers.
Hyperspectral Imaging for Differentiating Glyphosate-Resistant and Glyphosate-Susceptible Italian Ryegrass  [PDF]

Abstract: Glyphosate is widely used in row crop weed control programs of glyphosate-resistant (GR) crops. With the accumulation of glyphosate use, several weeds have evolved resistance to glyphosate. In order to control GR weeds for profitable crop production, it is critical to first identify them in crop fields. Conventional method for identifying GR weeds is destructive, tedious and labor-intensive. This study developed hyperspectral imaging for rapid sensing of Italian ryegrass (Lolium perenne ssp. multiflorum) plants to determine if each plant is GR or glyphosate-susceptible (GS). In image analysis, a set of sensitive spectral bands was determined using a forward selection algorithm by optimizing the area under the receiver operating characteristic between GR and GS plants. Then, the dimensionality of selected bands was reduced using linear discriminant analysis. At the end the maximum likelihood classification was conducted for plant sample differentiation of GR Italian ryegrass from GS ones. The results indicated that the overall classification accuracy is between 75% and 80%. Although the accuracy is lower than the classification of Palmer amaranth (
