Irpinia is a territory characterized by a strong landscape, urban and cultural identity. The area is subject to a significant seismic risk due to the high seismicity of the area as its frequent earthquakes demonstrate. The interior suffers from continuous cultural distortion due to the recurrence of reconstruction processes and the territorial, urban and architectural structure, which differs from the characteristics of the specific landscape. For all these reasons it represents an important observatory aimed at mitigating environmental menace due to the abandonment of the historic centers which have been witnessed for years with the disappearance of the communities that live there and with the progressive degradation of the monumental heritage that affects many of its interesting medieval villages.

Abstract

Irpinia is a territory characterized by a strong landscape, urban and cultural identity. The area is subject to a significant seismic risk due to the high seismicity of the area as its frequent earthquakes demonstrate. The interior suffers from continuous cultural distortion due to the recurrence of reconstruction processes and the territorial, urban and architectural structure, which differs from the characteristics of the specific landscape. For all these reasons it represents an important observatory aimed at mitigating environmental menace due to the abandonment of the historic centers which have been witnessed for years with the disappearance of the communities that live there and with the progressive degradation of the monumental heritage that affects many of its interesting medieval villages.
