The aim of the course is to provide geological and geotechnical knowledge for the understanding of the natural phenomena that may affect the development and fruition of cultural heritages, both landscapes and/or architectural heritages. Additionally, the student must acquire appropriate training that allows multidisciplinary relationships with other professionals, which are involved in the protection and management of goods.
At the end of the course, the student will acquire basic knowledge about the rheology of geological media (soils, rocks and rock masses), of the main geotechnical and geomorphological processes to which they may be subject. The student will therefore be able to formulate reasonable hypotheses on the main issues that may affect the preservation and enjoyment of cultural, landscape and architectural heritage, in relation to their geological and geotechnical context. He will have a geological-technical glossary suitable to understand the content of geological-applicative documents, including thematic maps of susceptibility to instability, hazard and risk.
