    The path starts from the beach of Venere Azzurra and passes through the beach of Marinella di San Terenzo, then it climbs to Falconara (Lerici, SP). During the scientific trekking there will be three stops, when the coastal environment will be "explored" and different themes will be addressed including: macro and microplastics on the beaches, alien species in the Gulf of La Spezia, anthropization of the coastal environment. In Falconara, participants will observe the recovery of vegetation in areas no longer subject to strict anthropogenic control. The activity will be carried out in the province of La Spezia under the coordination of INGV.
