In 1847 he graduated in hydraulic engineering and architecture and then, as an officer of the Royal Mines Corps (Regio Corpo delle Miniere), he was sent along with Quintino Sella to the Higher School of Mines in Paris where he specialized his studies acquiring greater knowledge in geominery, metallurgy and its possible industrial applications.
During the Second International Congress of Geology in Bologna in 1881, when most of the specialists in geological disciplines met, the idea of creating the Italian Geological Society came together. Among the promoters were Giovanni Capellini (first president), Giuseppe Meneghini, Quintino Sella, Dante Pantanelli, Torquato Taramelli and Giordano, among others.
He was part of the Royal Geological Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture, Industry and Commerce, along with Igino Cocchi and Giuseppe Meneghini, whose task was to make the geological map of the Kingdom of Italy.
Among his hydraulic engineering works, we can mention the Corongiu dam, in the territory of Sinai, for the water supply of the city of Cagliari, thus creating the first artificial lake in Italy. The dam, the first of its kind in Sardinia, was inaugurated in 1867.
He was the first to make the ascent of Mont Blanc from the Italian side, by the steepest part, on August 6, 1864; Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard had made the first ascent in 1786 from Chamonix, on the French side.

Lot arrived very badly packed after a very nervous wait and lack of response from the seller.Bad tracking number. One layer of bubbles and a simple carton could be pierced easily. Could do better.
