Abstract

Since the 16th century the Venetian Republic started a land reclamation program with embankments and artificial cut-offs in the Polesine area. Due to river management, the recurrent floods, avulsions and crevasses which chararcterized the Adige river have greatly diminished in the last centuries. The study area consists of a stretch of low plain characterized by Late Holocene fine sediments. This work is focussed on the palaeo-meander of the Adige near the village of Pettorazza Grimani that was cut-off in 1783. Palaeogeographical map of the area of Pettorazza has been carried out throught the geomorphological study from microrelief and DTM analysis, historical cartography research and field survey.
