Calanchi, Tursi, MT, Italia


The badlands characterize the harsh landscape of south-eastern Basilicata, among the valleys of Sauro, Agri and BasentoIn these parts of the territory, it is possible to notice furrows placed in parallel or fan, created by the erosion of surface water on the clay slopes, called Calanchi and perfectly described in Carlo Levi's work Christ stopped at Eboli. The territory in this area is therefore bare and rich in white clay, steep and characterized by precipices and valleys excavated by water erosion.
