Abstract

The mining activities in Sicily, over the years, have had a gradual decline until to their total abandonment, determining a degradation process for the territory and the landscape. This abandonment process, has increased the vulnerable of these sites, that often, are became incubators or sprinklers of some poisons, in them illegally allocated, becoming dangerous for the agricultural activities, the water tables, and the health of the communities nearest. Among the mining sites in Sicily’s most historic and cultural interest, which in recent years has been recalled for some cases of environmental damage, there is the Pasquasia’ site (EN). After the closed and the abandoned in the 1992, it was transformed into an open dump of the hazardous waste; in particular of the asbestos cement type. The study suggests, at starting to a baseline scenario as that of the remediation for the site, an evaluation model for some redevelopment integrated actions.
