The community of a revolutionary dam

Friday May 3 2024 | h 10.00

Dam of Montecotugno-Senise (PZ)

The Montecotugno dam is the largest earthen dam in Europe and is a place rich in biodiversity.

But what biodiversity was present in the area before the dam? Which was present during its construction? And which is currently present in the dam?

The lake was built in one of the most fertile areas of the territory where man cultivated cereals and vegetables that were fundamental to the local economy. During its construction, there was a major social unrest that led the population to take possession of the large iron cap and strike for several months. Today, the integrity of the new ecosystem is threatened by the sudden effects of climate change.
