As part of the European ResCult project, a Model has been prepared which provides a methodology for assessing the risk of immovable cultural heritage in relation to natural and man-made disastrous events, such as earthquakes, floods and fires. The Model is aimed at Institutions, Civil protection, experts, sector operators, as a fast and effective tool. Values that allow a detailed and concise view of the risk are assigned and calculated to indicators of hazard and vulnerability of the elements of the building and its context. The Model can be used before, during and after a disastrous event, to evaluate interventions in the prevention, emergency and reconstruction phases. In prevention, it can help determine the most vulnerable elements of the building and suggest where to act with preventive measures to reduce this vulnerability. During or immediately after the occurrence of an event, it can assist the Civil Protection and the operators in the priorities to be assigned to the interventions. After the event, it can help you develop an effective reconstruction strategy.
