The study area focuses on three cases of study in the Veneto Region: the city of Adria, the village of Pettorazza Grimani, both located in the Rovigo Area, and the Sant’Ilario community in the Mira District on the southern border of the Venice Lagoon. The multidisciplinary approach (archaeological, geological, geographical and historical) used in the geoarchaeological research discussed in this paper is based on the study of written sources, historical cartography, aerial photographs, digital terrain model, archaeological and geological data. The analysis highlights the interaction between anthropic and environmental changes realised during centuries and the key role of the hydrography in constraining land use dynamics in the landscapes of plain.
