|Abstract:||The Vesuvius Case Study was developed in the framework of Work Group 4 (‘Risk Assessment for Catastrophic Scenarios in Urban Areas’) of the EU COST Action C26 (‘Urban Habitat Constructions under Catastrophic Events’).An important activity has been the in situ survey, for the volcanic and seismic vulnerability assessment of different construction typologies, such as residential buildings and historical buildings, school buildings and monumental villas, located in selected areas exposed to volcanic hazard. During this activity, the identification of buildings has been performed through a visual investigation, supported by an ‘ad hoc’ form, related to the building vulnerability to seismic and volcanic actions. This paper refers to the survey activity conducted during January 2009, on a part of the historical centre and the residential area of Torre del Greco. Torre del Greco is the town with the highest population in the Vesuvian area.|
