Abstract

The alluvial plain around Padua results from the sedimentary activity of the Brenta and the Bacchiglione rivers since the last glaciation to the modern times. The inner and oldest part of the city developed on the banks of a former meander of the Brenta River, later occupied by a minor course, the Bacchiglione. Early archaeological evidence dates back to the final Bronze Age and the first urban settlement started in the Iron Age. The underground of the city centre consists of alluvial sediments overlaid by Iron Age, Roman, and Medieval archaeological deposits. A comparison of high-resolution DEMs, built from different datasets (CTR, CTR-n, CTC maps; LiDAR), is presented. - (NF)
