Alternative techniques and approaches for improving the seismic performance of masonry infills
This doctoral dissertation aims to report on the research work carried out in the field of alternative techniques and approaches for improving the seismic performance of masonry infills. An aspect often overlooked in the design and/or verification of Reinforced Concrete (RC) frame buildings it is the one related to the so-called "non-structural" elements, that are elements without a main structural function, but capable of causing damage to things and people during the seismic action. A typ...
The interface between cardiovascular disease and inflammation: hydrogen sulfide and annexin A1 pathways as novel pharmacological targets
Cardiovascular diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders of the heart and the vasculature, in which different factors are responsible for their onset. In particular, among the various factors contributing the development of vascular disorders there are hyperlipidaemia, hyperglycaemia, cigarette smoke, obesity and hyperhomocysteinemia. Many of the pathologies that are part of vascular disorders, as hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis and heart failure, are characterized by two main c...
“DEVELOPMENT AND OPTIMIZATION OF SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BIOACTIVE MOLECULES STARTING FROM UNICELLULAR PLANTS AND/OR FROM MICROORGANISMS”
In recent years, the interest in algae has increased significantly thanks to their health benefits, such as dietary supplementation but also potential alternative to classic drugs. Microalgae are new model organisms for a wide range of biotechnology applications, including the production of biodiesel and the bioremediation of waste water but also the natural food and nutraceutical food supplements sector thanks to the development of products with benefits for human health and nutrition. Rich ...
Per una “Basilicata sacra”. La santità patronale latina nel pieno Medioevo acheruntino: quattro casi di studio
Organized into five chapters, the thesis essentially focuses on the study of four figures of patron saints whose cults had vast fortune in the high and late medieval age within the context of the metropolis of Acerenza, that was the beating heart of the region and the embryonic nucleus of what would later become the identity of Basilicata: Gerardo bishop and confessor (in Potenza), Canio bishop and martyr and Laverio martyr (in Acerenza) and Eustachio martyr (in Matera). In this work, other s...
DEFINITION OF AN ADVANCED PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CONTAINERS AS POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTICS
For decades, petroleum-based synthetic polymers, commonly known as plastics, have become one of the most appealing materials used for a wide variety of applications. Nevertheless, currently, conventional petroleum-based plastics represent a serious problem for global pollution because remain for hundreds of years in the environment when discarded. In order to reduce dependence on fossil resources, bioplastic materials are being proposed as safer and more sustainable alternatives. Bioplastics ...
