TRIQUETRA Project Holds Successful 3rd Plenary Meeting in Ventotene, Italy

The TRIQUETRA project successfully conducted its 3rd Plenary Meeting on May 21 and 22, 2024, in the scenic town of Ventotene, Italy. The meeting, organized by Salvatore Martino from Sapienza University, brought together the diverse group of experts and stakeholders in the Triquetra project, dedicated to advancing the project’s goals.

Day 1: Consortium Meeting and Welcome Ceremony

The first day of the plenary meeting took place at the municipality of Ventotene. The event commenced with a warm welcome from the host, Salvatore Martino, and featured several distinguished guests, including:

The Mayor of Ventotene, Dr. Carmine Caputo

The Extraordinary Commissioner of the Government, Col. Giovanni Macioce

The Superintendent of the Province of Frosinone and Latina, Arch. Lisa Lanbusier

The Vice-Rector for Research of “Sapienza,” Prof.ssa Francesca Bozzano

The Director of CERI “Sapienza,” Prof. Gabriele Scarascia Mugnozza

The welcoming ceremony was a highlight, setting a collaborative and enthusiastic tone for the day’s discussions.

During the consortium meeting, participants engaged in in-depth discussions on various work packages and project milestones. Highlights included updates on project management, data management plans, and the development of novel sensing and mitigation modules. The meeting also featured a vibrant exchange of gifts between the guests and the organizers, symbolizing the strong partnerships and mutual respect among the attendees.

Day 2: Excursion and Sensor Inauguration

The second day was marked by an excursion focused on the cultural heritage of Ventotene and Santo Stefano, culminating in a visit to the TRIQUETRA pilot site at Villa Giulia, Punta Eolo. This site, rich in historical significance, provided an inspiring backdrop for the introduction of a new multi-sensor monitoring system.

In a special ceremony, the Mayor of Ventotene cut the ribbon to inaugurate the state-of-the-art sensor designed to measure wave impacts on the rocks of Ventotene. This sensor, part of the TRIQUETRA project’s innovative approach to cultural heritage site preservation, is located near the archaeological site of The Villa Giulia in Ventotene island, which is known to be prone to multiple landslides. The multi-parametric monitoring system of this sensor is intended to investigate the effects of wind, sea waves, and atmospheric events. Modern technologies are included in the monitoring system, which includes both subaerial and underwater sensors. This is a significant milestone in the ongoing efforts to protect and monitor these invaluable sites.

The TRIQUETRA project, funded by the EU Horizon Europe research and innovation programme, continues to make significant strides in cultural heritage preservation through cutting-edge technology and collaborative efforts. The 3rd Plenary Meeting in Ventotene has further solidified the project’s commitment to its objectives and the strong partnerships driving its success.
