Title: Preventive measures to protect culture and reduce the number of human victims in earthquake region Umbria
The SISMA project (System Integrated for Security Management Activities) encompasses the seismologically endangered region of the Adrian Sea, e.g., the east coast of Italy. Preventive measures and emergency plans strive to counteract earthquake damage in urban living spaces and to buildings of heritage in Umbria. These measures include special construction practices and regulations, risk management and public consciousness building, all of which aim to reduce damage to historic buildings and human losses in the event of an emergency.
