DENOMINATION: Scarpariello Tower.

SEE, VISIT, FIND: The tower is of private ownership.
FRUITION DATA: None
OPPORTUNITIES: The use of information supports, placed outside, could obviate the inability to visit the structure. Coastal towers and evidence of military archaeology could also be better enhanced if included in a thematic itinerary.
