Streszczenie

The geomorphological analysis of historically urbanized areas is the best scientific way to understand how then extant geomorphological factors conditioned urbanization. It also provides a baseline to enable comparisons to be made with the modern environment. This paper considers four urbanized historical sites on the Adriatic coast (Italy) that owe their urban development to particular geomorphological and environmental conditions that were modified over the centuries from the Roman age to the present day. The focus here is on the evolution of the shoreline and the geomorphic variables associated with river mouths. These factors are fundamental for determining the development of a city, both as basic boundary elements - therefore including defence and protection - and also for the development of harbours.
