HILLS, RIVERS AND GULLIES

THE GULLIES

A gully is a typical morphological expression of clayish and marlish slopes caused by meteoric water erosion which corroded the ground poor in protecting plant coating: as a result a deep split in the ground developed showing the underlying layers with series of ribs with knife blade shape which form a slope in constantly changing.

This phenomenon, typical of our territory, can be easily seen along Estense Street in the stretch from Torre Maina leading to Serramazzoni-Pavullo.
