Abstract

The Finalese is an area of great geomorphological and cultural value, with major scientific, landscape, socio-economic, and historical features that offer opportunities for investigating the relationships between issues concerning geodiversity and land use. This paper presents the geomorphological and environmental profile of the Ponci Valley, which is located in the Finale Ligure (Savona) hinterland, and its relationship with the presence of some artefacts of Roman age (13-12 B.C.). This site has geomorphological, environmental, and archaeological value and in all it can be acknowledged as a geosite of Mediterranean importance. Thereby it represents an asset of high cultural and landscape value for which protection and enhancement measures must be undertaken to preserve it and, at the same time, to promote sustainable tourism. - (NF)
