Abstract

Landscape preservation strongly depends on exploration and knowledge of its history and evolution. The acquisition and the analysis of geological and geomorphological features are basic and useful tools to identify the touristic potential and the anthropic impact of a territory. This study aims to enhance the knowledge of the natural and cultural heritage of an area of the Daunia Mts between the towns of Alberona and Faeto, SouthernItaly, marked by neglect and abandonment, through the drafting of a geomorphological map and the proposal of geotourist itineraries and routes. The results highlight the potential competitiveness and attractiveness of the study area by contributing to the promotion of a sustainable development of a marginal territory. Such data may encourage a form of fruition that promotes knowledge, appreciation, and environmental awareness, in a fragile territorial context.
