Abstract

Slope movements represent a class of phenomena, which can display a great variety of styles, sizes and displacement rates. Some are extremely rapid, short-lived and highly destructive; others are extremely slow and apparently endless. This paper describes an extremely slow soil slope deformation process that is probably active since thousands of years and will certainly go on for many years to come. The results of in-depth investigations carried out after the 1980 Irpinia-Basilicata earthquake integrated by satellite images covering the time interval 1992–2013 have provided a global and consistent framework that allows to draw a reliable scenario about the effects of the geological processes that are active in the area on slope deformation mechanisms.
