My presentation at the meeting of the Life-Iris project "Improve resilience of the industrial sector" (Bomporto, November 21, 2017) titled "Climate change: extreme rainfall, flood risk and adaptation strategies" (in Italian) can be downloaded at the link below.

Web site providing information, tutorials and videos for the master degree course on Mountain Rivers Training. The web page is in Italian.

I had the opportunity to participate, together with Attilio Castellarin and several other researchers, to a study conducted by a team at the Technical University of Wien, showing that the timing of the floods has shifted across much of Europe.

At the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa) I gave a perspective talk titled "Should we reconsider the conceptual structure of hydrological models?". My presentation is a bit provocative and focuses on stochastic physically-based modeling of hydrological processes.

I gave a talk on the river memory experiment at the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa).


Mountain rivers training - E-book for students (in Italian)

Traversa sul Torrent Contrin (Val di Fassa)
This e-book is meant to provide a reference to students who are interested in learning how to design river engineering works for training mountain rivers. The e-book has been conceived for the students of the School of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Bologna. It is an evolving and dynamic e-book which will be continuously updated basing on recent research findings and web publications. Hyperlinks are widely used with the purpose of providing an open and freeluy accessible information. The documents are written in Italian. An English translation will be provided in the near future. Each lecture is accompanied by links to Youtube videos from my face-to-face lectures to students.

At the current level of development the e-book is still not complete. In particular, the presentation has been structured by assuming that students already know the fundamental concepts of sediment transport in mountain rivers. The e-book aims to profit from the interaction with the readers and in particular with students. I would appreciate very much receiving your comments and suggestions. In particular, please let me know if you see any mistake or missing information.
