Cover Story (view full-size image): Agricultural terraces in Liguria region (Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy; photo by P. Tarolli). Hillslope viticulture has a long history in the Mediterranean, and still holds important cultural and economic value. Terraces are built to retain soil and water, and to mitigate soil erosion in high‐steep landscapes. However, terrace degradation is worsening due an increase in the rainfall aggressiveness and the abandonment of rural areas, increasing the hydrogeologic risks.
