The Siderno area (Calabria Region - Southern Italy) is affected by deep seated slope deformations and large landslides, conditioned by the structural geological set up of the territory and by its ancient earthquake history. In this paper, the geomorphological framework of the study area is described, showing how the slope instability phenomena in general should deeply affect any choice about the use of the territory, with a special respect to large civil engineering works. Such phenomena have been severely activated or reactivated during the disastrous earthquake of 1783, that destroyed large part of the Calabria Region and, at present, condition the vulnerability and the risk of the whole territory. With special reference to an earth dam recently built up upstream to the town of Siderno Marina (RC) it is necessary a particular attention in the management of its water levels and a monitoring system to limit risk connected to the reservoir.
