This paper discusses preliminary results of a wide experimental campaign carried out in the frame of a collaboration between the Government of the isle of Cuba and the CUGRI consortium, an Italian institution which joins the Universities of Salerno and Napoli Federico II. The tests were aimed to analyze the performances of different solutions designed to reduce the overtopping of the Malecòn, a vertical face seawall protecting the northern waterfront of the city of La Habana. The shallow foreshore in front of the structure allowed assessing the role of wave setup and low frequency components of the incoming wave spectrum on the predictions of the mean overtopping rate.
