  • Naples, is characterized by high sierra effect gasses emissions and several polluting agents emissions. The urban zones in which the highest rates of pollution are recorded are the Ferrovia and the National Museum, but the alarm is gradually increasing also in the Vomero quarter, as recorded by the Santobono Hospital and the Vanvitelli school control units. The Vomero quarter, with the construction boom of the postwar period has been strongly built, and just two green areas are saved because contextual to major monuments: San Martino's vineyard and the Floridiana Park. The Villa Floridiana's park, is an urban element which brings remarkable benefits, both recreational and landscape and the air's healthiness with its 8 hectares of extension and its 150 plants species amongst which holm oaks, pines, sycamores, palms, boxwoods, cedar and camellias. Even if the Vomero hill zone has been objective of several activities of sustainable mobility, such as subway stations and station-exchange parking spots which, together with buses and funiculars, make the quarter extremely accessible, it is not easy nor immediate to understand how to really move against the PM emissions. The question is extremely important because we are talking about a wide residential zone, characterized by many commercial activities, schools, and a very close hospital zone. So, investigating on the nature and the types of polluting particles is necessary, especially for that part of the population which is more sensible to the polluting effects, which are children, elders and sick people. The Floridiana Park could be a great particulate monitoring area for the Vomero hill. The study are could be divided in sub-parts placed along the park's boundaries, close to the main streets and to the central part. Other monitoring sites could be placed alongside the streets near the major traffic points. The sampling consists of the choice of a representative and well distributed species of plant and its following collection, and their cleansing afterwards. After the appropriate particulate's filtering operations on cellulose disks, a SEM microscope analysis can be done in order to verify the nature of the particles and the presence of heavy metals. To understand how to constructively act in order to reduce the PM emissions in the Vomero quarter, it is useful to build a set of methods and technologies aimed at enhancing and integrate today's knowledge of the role of ecosystems and the single plants in the destruction of polluting agents. But, to be understood politically, socially and economically, the process of analysis must be supported by data and information which are developed keeping in mind the territoriality of the analyzed quantities. In order to do so, the data gathered from the analysis of the Floridian park must be managed by a GIS program which allows not only the data storage, but also its elaboration and following representation on thematic maps. The modern GIS technologies allow to realize information layers which can not only be consulted, but also updated and used to estimate and monitor the action to make in order to diminish environmental pollution.
