RIVER CECINA

   

The river Cecina

named after an Etruscan family

The river has a torrential regimen, with a flow rate that varies extremely from one season to another and long periods of drought in summer, especially in its middle course. It is about 78 km long.

The upper part of the river’s course is highly dominated by nature because of the lack of human settlements and the presence of forests. Because riparian areas are some of the most sensitive to human intervention and because, despite that, humans have chosen river banks for their settlements throughout the centuries, riparian areas in good conditions are a source of interest, both from a biological and a landscape-point of view. The part of the Cecina River between Berignone forest and Ponteginori has been awarded with the title of Site of Community Importance for the outstanding works of protection of the area.
