Abstract :

Italian peninsular coastal protected areas including in them both parks and nature reserves that Natura 2000 sites, are very numerous (over 100 parks and reserves , and more than 200 sites N2000 for a total envelope of over 500,000 ha) and interest, albeit with different texture , all coastal regions. Urban development registered over the past half century has caused direct and indirect consequences on ecosystems in this important and extensive ecotone on which express multiple transformative actions. It is actually a geographical area highly attractive for tourism, but also for permanent residence, thanks to the good conditions of mobility and transport. Many proposals for interventions industrial, energy and manufacturing in general still have the land as preferential localization and, in many cases , the presence of natural values, though still significant, is neglected.A goal of this work is to highlight the conditions of presence of high pressures and high transformative environmental values. It will be particularly used geostatistical tools comparing indicators to highlight conflicts between the phenomena of urbanization and protection, obtaining a classification of models and layout problems for the settlement and protected areas.A second objective of the paper is to provide an indication about the possible lines of territorial government designed to recover/reverse the situation at a high level of contrast.
