Collazzone area | Landslide
The hillslopes in the area around Collazzone are only gently inclined. However, they are highly susceptible to shallow landslides as the soils are characterized by a high content of clay, and are therefore easily mobilized in case of intense or prolonged rainfall. This photo shows a group of scientists extracting samples from a landslide scarp near the village of Ripaioli.
