The paper examines the conservation problems of part of the Finale’s coast. There, in few hundred meters, a “Saracen” Tower on the Caprazoppa promontory, the great wound of the former quarry Ghigliazza, a disused railway tunnel, the “Arene Candide” cave and what remains of the so-called “Napoleonic road” overlook the sea. On the steep escarpment facing the gulf, which ends on the roadbed of the national road “Aurelia”, we find a strong archaeological connotation, common (precarious) conditions, common emergencies.

Abstract

The paper examines the conservation problems of part of the Finale’s coast. There, in few hundred meters, a “Saracen” Tower on the Caprazoppa promontory, the great wound of the former quarry Ghigliazza, a disused railway tunnel, the “Arene Candide” cave and what remains of the so-called “Napoleonic road” overlook the sea. On the steep escarpment facing the gulf, which ends on the roadbed of the national road “Aurelia”, we find a strong archaeological connotation, common (precarious) conditions, common emergencies. And an uncertain fate.
