The “Vittoriano” monument, dedicated to king Vittorio Emanuele II, is one of the most famous cultural heritage landmarks in Rome (Italy), even because it hosts the Tomb of the unknown soldier, monument to the Italian fallen in wars. It was designed by the architect Giuseppe Sacconi at the end of 19th century and since the beginning of its construction, it has been affected by cracks and deformations. In the last years, such phenomena have become more evident, especially on the western side of the

The development of the sea economy (Blue Growth) represents an opportunity for worldwide coastal communities, which are increasing threatened by urban pressure, sea pollution, erosion processes and flooding events due to enhancing rate of relative sea level rise and storminess driven by climate change. These hazards pose several planning and management challenges to the stakeholders, often constrained in finding a compromise between flooding protection of the urban settlements, economic needs of the land an

Different types of natural hazard affect the surface of the Earth, exposing human communities to high-risk conditions. This fact makes it imperative to identify strategies for preventing, responding to, managing, and recovering from natural disasters. It is within this framework that the concept of “resilience” has arisen. Achieving a resilient condition is the only way to mitigate the impact of and the losses due to natural disasters, as well as to protect the health and well-being of communities. The

Seismic response studies carried out in the Municipality of Forio on Ischia (NA), southern Italy, following the 21st August 2017 earthquake allowed to detect local effects related to specific geological-structural settings that reflect the complexity of the volcanic context which characterises the entire island of Ischia and, more specifically, the western sector of Mt. Epomeo and the adjacent coastal plain. In particular, the following have been observed: i) polarization and amplification effects in the p
