The main aim of this study is to comprehend landslide phenomena that affect the area of Rovegliana (North-Eastern Italian pre-Alps), quantifying soil displacements and investigating conditions that influence slope dynamics. Geological surveying turns out to be useful as support to the satellite radar interferometry technique, whose results allowed to position the points of a GPS network. In a delimited area of two districts, identified with high level of criticality, laser-scanner surveying has been implemented on damaged buildings. Preliminary results show that the area is affected by superficial slow moving phenomena which need to be further investigated and monitored to plan effective remediation works.
