The Region of Umbria region is characterised by highly different geological and geomorphological environments, giving the territory a “geomorphodiversity” as well as considerable variability among its ecosystems. The identification of potential geomorphosites is interesting, and is aimed not only at protecting them, but also at an appropriate management and use of the territory as well.

Abstract

The Region of Umbria region is characterised by highly different geological and geomorphological environments, giving the territory a “geomorphodiversity” as well as considerable variability among its ecosystems. The identification of potential geomorphosites is interesting, and is aimed not only at protecting them, but also at an appropriate management and use of the territory as well. This work attempts to provide a preliminary analysis by identifying common parameters within those numerous environments that best correspond to the “geomorphosite” model, based on their historical, geomorphological and landscape characteristics. Therefore a review of the Umbria’s environments has been prepared.
