Abstract

The Calabria region, located in the South of Italy, has a coastline longer than 700 km and it plays a crucial role in economic growth. Unfortunately, all the coasts were affected by strong erosive phenomena during the last century. Since 2012 the Regional Environmental Office (Autorità di Bacino) has been conducting an integrated program to restore the existing beaches in the so-called “APQ (Framework Programme Agreement) on Coastal Defence” in association with the “Mediterranea” University of Reggio Calabria. This paper is concerned with the first part of the programme which involves the cognitive phase and is divided into two parts, the first one pertains to the historical evolution of the Calabria shoreline, evaluated by a cartographic analysis and the second one pertains to the evaluation of the causes of the erosion.
