Description :

Landslides have been known in the municipality of Agnone since at least the beginning of the twentieth century. The oldest report describing an instability event refers to a phenomenon that occurred in March 1905 in the San Nicola Valley due to the combination of a period of intense rainfall combined with snow-melting. This event damaged the bridge that carried the main access road to the historical center of Agnone. The municipality of Agnone has been successively affected by several small and large landslide events. Archival and bibliographical landslide research, reported in the nationwide AVI Project, revealed more than 60 landslides that occurred in the municipality of Agnone and the surrounding territory. After an intense rainfall event that affected southern Italy between the 23rd and the 27th of January 2003, with more than 200 mm of rain falling over 72h, an important remobilization involved a large area of the historically dormant Agnone landslide due to an unusual increase in pore pressure. The event caused deformations over the whole basin and forcing the local authorities to adopt restrictive measures for 13 edifices occupied by 17 families located within and nearby the landslide. Furthermore, two country roads adjacent to the landslide remained closed due to the substantial damage caused by the reactivation. The mass movement subsequently reactivated in 2004, 2005 and between 2006 and 2007, induced the local administration to allocate resources for some urgent interventions to intercept superficial waters and drain a pond formed in the upper portion of the affected area, in addition to geomorphological reshaping work. Inclinometer and GPS stations were installed and the landslide was monitored by PS data.
