PROVINCE OF PAVIA

PREFACE Soil holds a primary strategic importance for the life of all living beings. Soil offers the support for our houses, roads and recreation. It is the filter for rainwater, and is the base for trees, plants and daily life produce growing in the soil. It offers us a countless and evident number of gifts. Our task as citizens consists in respecting soil as a source of life and a living entity, taking care not to damage it. It takes hundreds of years to form soil, but just few moments to destroy damage, contaminate or kill it. Contrived by Professor Cenci of the Joint Research Centre of European Commission, the Pavia Project heads in the right direction. It is an informative tool which precisely captures the quality of surface and deep soil of the Province of Pavia under all aspects, chemical, physical and biological. The information contained in this project are and will be an essential tool for the proper planning of all the activities carried out on the soil of Pavia. In this zone agriculture has always held a cultural and social importance, besides the economical role. Agriculture is a historical connective tissue linking the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, thus the protection of its quality is of vital importance. Every common citizen, and above all the Pavia governors, must know how to manage this heritage taking care of le
