meteorology, soil survey laboratory, prevention of soil erosion, landslides and snow
avalanches, applied pedology. His research focuses on the genesis and functioning
of mountain soils with a special interest for the processes at the snow/soil

NEUNAU, artist name of Sergio Maggioni, in 2015 returns to live in Valle Camonica,
where he comes from, and he founded the NEUNAU as artistic research project.
This ancient name was found carved on a rock surface in the LOA area, an Iron Age
sacred place of recent discovery. The project is carried out through an
archaeological and musicological approach to the sound research. NEUNAU’s
sound investigations develop from the smallest details conveyed by a sound
source, capturing and studying these sounds, searching for their musical
potentiality, with the aim to produce audio tracks and documentary clips, where the
main character is the sound itself, used to tell its own story. In 2020 he created the
research project “UN SUONO IN ESTINZIONE” which aims to monitor the
implications of climate change on alpine glaciers through artistic and scientic
exploration, in collaboration with universities, institutions and partners.
