Aerial photographs and topographical territorial analysis: some case studies in the Vestine area (Abruzzo)

Patricia Tartara


Data gathered by survey, photointerpretation of historical and recent aerial photographs, archives, bibliography, local bibliography and oral information, give an interesting picture of population settlement patterns in the Region of Abruzzo. Since prehistoric periods, the area along the Royal Sheep Track (Tratturo Regio) has been controlled by hilltop settlements as an ancient commercial route. The settlement pattern, on a local scale, still survives today.
