The analysis of six historical maps of the XVIII-XIX centuries, describing the area now known as “Destra Sele” and delimiting some property boundaries, highlights the elements of contemporary territorial conflicts, caused by two fundamental causes: the first pertains to frequent clashes between the ancient ‘feudal rights’, claimed by the Doria D’Angri family, and the requests from the nearby Eboli’s University (= Commune) for civic uses; the second is related to the use of water: infact, in the past, landowners of the Piana del Sele, usually, diverted the rivers for irrigation, without organic and consistent plans and without solving the serious waterlogging of nearby areas. The Napoleonic Government and, after post Revolutionary, the Bourbon Government intervened to resolve this problem. Only the Fascist Government, however, in the ‘30s of XX century, finally solved it, with the total drainage of the marshes and the subsequent establishment of the Land Reclamation Authorities, on the Right and on the Left of Sele River. These Authorities, specifically created to establish the organization and control of the territorial economy post Reclamation, are still engaged in soil conservation, irrigation, environmental protection and enhancement of agricultural land of the Sele’s Plain. So, the six maps, compared with existing maps, through the G.I.S., make the profound changes of this territory clear, including the signs of Fascist Reclamation and of the following Agriculture Reform, the end of the problem of distribution of the water, the high population density and the presence of a lot of industries and tertiary activities (particularly in tourism).
