The L’Aquila seismic crisis of April 2009 caused some damage to buildings in Rome’s urban area, located about 100 km west of the epicentral area. This paper reconstructs the damage scenario based on data provided by the Fire Brigade (FB) of the Provincial Department of Rome. The data base contains: i) records of telephone calls received by the FB and asking for inspections of possible damage; ii) reports of inspections of buildings carried out by its technical staff. The most significant damage was conc

Background knowledges about inundation phenomena in Lombardy (Italy) demonstrates that the behavior of rivers during the floods is characterized by high erosion capacity, especially in Alpine and Prealpine Valleys. The purpose of this study is to verify if riverbank instability can be enhanced by hydrogeological causes in addition to erosion due to the high stream speed. These events happen during flash floods, which are characterized by quick high increases in water surface variations, followed by rapid

The paper deals with slope instabilities triggered by the thaw of mountain permafrost related to climate change. Warming-induced permafrost degradation is likely to lead an increasing in scale and frequency of slope failures and may cause thaw settlement damages to foundations. At the same time, human settlements, infrastructural development and tourism in high mountain areas are expanding, which intensifies permafrost-related risks. The aim of the study was the understanding of the geomorphologic and cli

The paper is focused on the assessment of the landslide susceptibility, defined as the combination of the natural and human factors that make slopes prone to slide, coupled with the observed recurrence of landslide reactivations. The susceptibility (i.e., the spatial component of the landslide hazard) is assessed by taking into account four causative factors chosen looking at the availability of general-purpose datasets commonly available at area-scale: they are lithology, slope aspect, slope gradient and l
