Abstract: The assessment of vulnerability of the urban area in the Vesuvian Area, was carried out within the framework of EU COST Action C26 'Urban Habitat Constructions under Catastrophic Events'. A data collection exercise was conducted through an in situ survey for the volcanic vulnerability assessment on different construction typologies, such as historic, residential and school buildings, and monumental villas, located in selected areas exposed to volcanic hazard. During this activity, the building identification was 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 data collection activity concerning 9 Vesuvian Villas, and the seismic and volcanic vulnerability assessment of these monumental structures.
