After the Earthquake: The Resilience of the Territories and Communities in the Emilia Romagna Crater

Francesco Alberti

Department of Architecture, University of Ferrara, Italy

Abstract: Almost ten years after the 2012 earthquake in Emilia Romagna, which devastated the municipalities of the crater, we can begin to evaluate the effects of a reconstruction process that begins to restore a new landscape and a new urban image. The reconstruction plans have taken on an unprecedented multilevel and multidisciplinary structure, an integrated territorial project that seeks to overcome the drama of the disastrous event by seizing the opportunity for socio-economic revitalization and for the safety of the settlements affected by the earthquake.

Key words: strategic planning, decision making, urban resilience, urban regeneration, social inclusion
