OFFER DESCRIPTION

The island of Motya in the center of the Stagnone di Marsala, on the western cusp of Sicily in front of the Egadi Islands, represents a unique ecosystem where research has recognized several animal and botanical species brought by the Phoenicians that have been preserved protected by the island. A recent study has shown how Motya is strongly threatened by climate change and how the entire ecosystem of the Stagnone (subject to daily and monthly tides) must be even more studied and protected.
The researcher aims to contribute to the safeguarding and protection of cultural heritage (of Mozia as a Mediterranean and European case study to be compared with other coastal sites) from the effects of climate change and natural risks, particularly present in coastal cultural landscapes and maritime and underwater heritage.
