This short note aims to reconstruct the geomorphological hazard scenarios connected to the complex landslide that insists on the territory of Vestea (Civitella Casanova Municipality, in the province of Pescara, Italy). The landslide, active for several decades, probably since the XIX century, is located along a wide valley and starting from its head. It manifests frequently local reactivations with varying movement typology; while total reactivations, taking place in concomitance of particular climate and hydrogeological factors, are more rare.
