Il Sistema Informativo Territoriale della “Carta del Rischio”
G. Accardo, C. Cacace, R. Rinaldi - 2005

The development of the MARIS system (Territorial Information System for the "Rischio Charter") to assess the risk of loss of cultural heritage in Italy is addressed.

La Carta del Riesgo del Patrimonio Cultural

Avaliaçâo expedita do risco sísmico de bens culturalis imóveis
2017 - X. Româo, E. Paupério et alt.

The document introduces a simplified methodology for risk assessment specifically developed for immovable cultural heritage. It encompasses the different components necessary for risk evaluation and can serve as a screening tool for the preliminary analysis of a large number of cultural properties, especially those with limited resources. It's also adaptable for cultural assets requiring a more detailed risk assessment.The proposed methodology is qualitative, relying on a set of structured questionnaires that integrate the key components of risk assessment: probability, consequences of the hazard, vulnerability of the property to the hazard's effects, loss of property value, and recovery capability post-incident. To illustrate its application, a case study is presented examining the seismic risk of a church in Italy damaged by the L'Aquila earthquake in 2009.
La metodología propuesta es un método cualitativo basado en un conjunto de cuestionarios estructurados que integran los principales componentes de una evaluación de riesgos: la probabilidad, consecuencias del peligro, la vulnerabilidad del bien a los efectos del peligro, la pérdida de valor de la propiedad y la capacidad de recuperación tras el suceso. Para ilustrar su aplicación se presenta un estudio de caso que analiza el riesgo sísmico de una iglesia en Italia que fue dañado por el terremoto de L'Aquila en 2009

A framework for the simplified risk analysis of cultural heritage assets
2016 - X. Româo, E. Paupério et alt.

The proposed framework suggests a simplified risk assessment specifically tailored for built cultural heritage properties. This framework encompasses all components necessary for a comprehensive risk analysis and can serve as a screening procedure for the preliminary assessment of a large number of properties with limited resources. Moreover, it can identify cultural heritage properties that require a more refined risk assessment demanding additional resources. Belonging to the category of qualitative methods, the proposed risk analysis framework is built upon an existing approach developed for assessing the vulnerability of critical infrastructures. The qualitative risk analysis methodology relies on a set of structured assessment flowcharts that address the key components of risk analysis: the likelihood of the hazard, asset vulnerability to the hazard, consequences of the hazard, asset value loss, and event recovery capability.To illustrate the applicability of this methodology, an example application is presented concerning seismic risk.
