c) Work specification analysis with alternative solutions specification;
d) Definition of environmental and landscape constraints (D.Lgs 42/04 e ssmmii) with renovation/building work definitiion (do's & don'ts)

- Location
Easy access from a paved road, the nearest A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria motorway exit (Lauria Nord) is only 10 km away, while the Airport of Napoli Capodichino is 190 km away .
The Lucanian Tyrrhenian coast comprises a 30 km stretch running from Punta del Crivi, just north of Acquafredda, to the Spiaggia "d'a Gnola", south of the Secca di Castrocucco.
Approaching from the Valle del Noce, coming through Trecchina, all of a sudden the verdant landscape of woods in an exciting leap plummets to the sea. An unbroken chain of coves, promontories and islets stud the deep, deep blue of this stretch of the Tyrrhenian.
Maratea scattered over the mountains and along the coast seems to have been part of the land forever. The sight that meets the eyes can only be described as a small corner of paradise.
This coast, surrounded by mountains and a mantel of woods, has only been the destination of a tourist in search for places that offer rare natural beauty since the sixties. Yet Maratea's natural surroundings are only the scenic backdrop to a land steeped in history and culture. A stay here offers the visitor the chance of a new awareness.
The sea is one of the cleanest in Italy (Maratea is equipped with one of the most avant-garde purifiers in Europe), and the coast is studded with hordes of small beaches and grottoes engulfed in uncontaminated surroundings.
The rocky sea bed is very deep almost from the coast and is ideal for observing sea life. And by the way, you should know that in the stretch of sea above Castrocucco a proposal for a marine park has been put forward to safeguard the eco-balance and the archaeological finds and a Roman villa with tubs like those found in Santo lanni, near Capo la Secca.
Navigation is facilitated by a tourist harbour which is very well-equipped and capable of mooring even larger vessels.
The centre of Maratea, with its characteristic medieval district offers a very pleasant stroll through the 'vicoli' (lanes) which not only offer the visitor the chance for some shopping but also a series of international, cultural entertainment with art shows, concerts of classical music as well as jazz and folk events.
There are many excursions organised throughout the entire Basilicata. Another interesting feature of Maratea is the cyclopic statue of Christ the Redeemer, 21 m high and an arm span of 19 m. Dominating from mount San Biagio it overlooks the entire panorama where the view includes the coast and some of the hinterland.
Then 25 km from the house, you can ski on Mount Sirino. Lift installations are provided for those skiing enthusiasts who want to combine the pleasure of a sport with the natural beauty of breathtaking scenery.
To complete the description, the restaurants are a treat and offer a range of the local Lucanian cuisine as well as the original dishes of some competent cooks.
