Consolidation of Fosso della Rocca – Massa Martana

Posted in Ecology and Environment

The consolidation of cliff’s face of Fosso della Rocca, near Massa Martana, was realized by a series of earth levels with graded depth (5.8 meters height).

The whole site has this dimensions: 150 meters of width and 38 meters in height. The side chosen for the project was a dump, therefore it was necessary to reclaim the land and set 3D nets on the cliff faces holding the land.

Successively,  the site was entirely covered with a waterproof cloth, tightly fixed to land by several metal anchor points.

Then, recovery material was used to cover the site and a further set of metal nets was applied to reinforce the structure and make it stable.
