In recent decades, many exceptionally valuable archaeological sites have suffered damage due to natural processes or human intervention.

At the Coliseum Archaeological Park, we have launched a system based on satellite data to monitor soil and structural deformations, evaluate vegetation stress, identify erosion processes, and locate excavation activities and building misuse.
