Abstract :
On the 19th-c. geological surveying and mapping of Italy. Observes that its division into several states caused an uneven treatment of the territory in terms of topographical and geological maps, and only with its unification (1861-1870) was the project for a complete geological survey of the country drawn up. Describes the surveying instruments at the disposition of the engineers and geologists conducting the survey, and traces the technical, bureaucratic, economic and political difficulties that arose during the complex operation. ;
