In Cutrofiano, in the southern part of the Salento Peninsula, Apulia, Italy, a Pleistocene calcarenitic sequence was quarried by digging extensive networks of galleries along the geological succession most suitable for the quarrying activity. These caves represent a potential hazard for the built-up environment due to the occurrence of underground instability that may propagate upward and eventually reach the surface, causing sinkholes. In this work we propose integrated interdisciplinary methods for cavities detection. The methodology was applied at a test area located along a major road near Cutrofiano using geological and electrical-resistivity tomography and microgravity geophysical methods.
