Badlands - Civita di Bagnoregio (VT)
The landscape of Civita di Bagnoregio is characterized by the typical shapes of the gullies resulting from the erosion of the clayey base layer of more ancient marine origin.
Badlands are an erosive form characterized by small steeply sloping valleys, devoid of vegetation, separated from each other by thin ridges: the steepness and impermeability of the clayey slope reduce the infiltration of water into the ground and favor its fast flow surface in rivulets, with the consequent removal of the altered superficial part of the clayey deposits and the incision of a dense drainage network.
The presence in significant quantities of a silty-sandy skeleton makes the clays more stable on steep slopes, and therefore favors the development and duration of the gullies over time.
The most impressive formation, nicknamed the Cathedral, stands out with its bold clay spiers among the white gullies of Bagnoregio: one of the most extraordinary landscapes in Italy, now a candidate for "World Heritage Site".
