One of the aims of this article is to present a series of information on the overall variations of the water surplus in Central Italy over the last 3000 years. Water surplus is understood here to be the water in the hydrological balance which is available as surface runoff and aquifer recharge. The other aims of this work are to describe the present climatic trends and, on the basis of these and that which has taken place in the past, to attempt to get an idea of what is likely to occur in the near future. A schematic map of central Italy and the location of the places mentioned in following is given in Figure 9-1. The data and conclusions given in this article refer only to the area west of the Apennine chain, roughly at a latitude between 41° and 43° 30’ N: at this time the results given here cannot be considered as applicable outside this area, especially north of the Apennine water divide.
