In Italy the Building Heritage School is more exposed to risks than any other Western country.

This situation is mainly due to the fact that 70% of schools were built before 1974 then with rules that did not take account of seismic risk.

The housing stock School is represented by approximately 42,000 buildings; of these, 24 000 is well located in areas classified as "high risk of earthquakes." Of the 24,000 buildings, 80% was achieved before 1974.

Recent government measures have made available funds for the safety of these buildings but still, basically, the interventions did not begin.


The risk of serious harm to people is so high, given the large number of students who inhabit the buildings.

Prevention is therefore the only way now possible to mitigate damage to people. Among the tools to prevent and mitigate the risk, the Seismic Sensor Threshold Differentiated "Bavarians" is the only instrument capable of performing issues Alerting Rapid.

For more information on the risks faced by their Region / Province, see annex document, here below, drawn up by Legambiente.

Mitigates the Risk

Italy is a seismic country

In the last thousand years, about 3,000 earthquakes have caused damage of varying severity. Almost 300 of these (with a magnitude greater than 5.5) have had destructive effects and even one every decade has had a catastrophic impact with an energy comparable to the earthquake of 2009. All the Italian towns can be damaged by earthquakes, But the strongest earthquakes are concentrated in some very specific areas: in the North-Eastern (Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto), in western Liguria, in the Northern Apennines (from Garfagnana to Rimini), and especially along the Central Apennines and South, in Calabria and Sicily. Although you live in a dangerous area, where in the past already occurred earthquakes or if the effects are felt. And this will happen again in the future.

What happens to a building?

An earthquake causes fluctuations, more or less strong, shaking buildings in various ways. The oscillations are more harmful than horizontal. The oldest buildings and those not designed to withstand the earthquake can not withstand such fluctuations, and therefore pose a danger to people. It is the collapse of the houses that kills, not the earthquake. Today, all new buildings must be constructed in compliance with the seismic regulations.

The next earthquake will damage?

It depends primarily on the strength of the earthquake (it occur thousands every year, most of modest energy) and the vulnerability of buildings. In the area you live in the past earthquakes they have caused damage to property and people. It is possible that the next major earthquake damage face: for this is important to find out, do prevention and be prepared for a possible earthquake.

When the next earthquake?

No one knows, because it could happen at any time. Earthquakes know many things, but it is not yet possible to predict with certainty when, with what force and precisely where will occur. We know, however, what they are the most dangerous areas and what can we expect from a shock: being prepared is the best way to prevent and reduce the consequences of an earthquake.

The effects of an earthquake are the same everywhere?

On an equal distance from the epicenter, the intensity of the shaking caused by the earthquake depends on the conditions of the territory, in particular the type of terrain and the shape of the landscape. Typically, the shaking is greater in areas where the soil is soft, less rigid on the land as a rock; also the location has effects on the intensity of the shaking, which is greater on the top of the reliefs and along the edges of embankments.

What does the state to help?

In 2009, after the earthquake in L'Aquila, the state has launched a national plan for the prevention of seismic, which provides for the allocation to the regions of around one billion Euros in seven years with different purposes:

  • investigation of seismic micro-zoning, to identify areas that can amplify the shaking of the earthquake;
  • interventions for safer public buildings strategic and relevant;
  • incentives for seismic upgrading of private buildings.

In which area you live ?

Italy is a country full earthquake, but its territory is classified into zones with different hazards. Who builds or modifies the structure of the house is required to comply with seismic standards in your area, to protect the lives of those who live there. To learn about the seismic zone in which you live and what are the standards to be met, talk to the relevant departments in your region or your municipality.

Safe in your home

It is important to know when and how it was built your home, what type of soil, with what materials. And especially if it was subsequently amended in compliance with the seismic standards. If you have any doubt or want to know more, you can contact the technical department of your local authority or to a trusted technician.


During an earthquake

  • If you are in a closed, put under a beam, in a doorway or near a load bearing wall.
  • Watch out for things that could fall and hit you (plaster, ceilings, windows, furniture, etc.).
  • Pay attention to the use of the stairs: they are often very resistant and can be damaged.
  • Better to avoid the elevator: you can block.
  • Pay attention to other possible consequences of the earthquake: the collapse of bridges, landslides, gas leaks etc.
  • If you are outdoors, move away from buildings, trees, streetlights, power lines and you could be hit by vases, tiles and other materials that fall.

After an earthquake

  • Make sure the health of those around you and, if necessary, providing first aid.
  • Come out with prudence, with shoes: you may hurt you in the street with broken glass.
  • If you are in a tsunami hazard zone, away from the beach and reach a high place.
  • Reach the waiting areas of the Plan or the Municipal Civil Protection.
  • Limited, as far as possible, the use of the phone.
  • Restricts the use of the car to avoid hampering the passage of emergency vehicles.

iAReSP Project - Collaboration

Lit the first of nine instruments, the Seismic Sensor free from man-made elements thanks to the collaboration agreement between iAReSP and Space Dynamics.

The September 10, 2015 was a very important day for SPACE DYNAMICS and the Association iAReSP that just six months of its constitution has managed to light the first of the nine instruments that will be housed at the Seismic Station Multidisciplinary Pizzoli near the capital of Abruzzo .

This is the Seismic Sensor free from man-made elements whose use is not to detect the parametric data of a seismic event, a task left to the triaxial seismometer that will be installed on Saturday, but is to detect the passage of seismic waves on the structure which houses and send a pre-alarm detection of primary waves (P) above the subsequent secondary waves (S), slower than the previous ones, but guilty of the destruction caused by the earthquake.

When the sensor network will be wide enough in the territory, alarms can be sent to the actuators that will be located in the home, in public offices, hospitals, schools, etc.

Obviously, as we have repeatedly explained, the effectiveness of the system will become clearer with the valid move away from the epicenter as the very high velocity of seismic waves, about 7 km per second and the P about 4 km per second the S, not It will send the alarm in time to residents in the epicentral area. The actuator will be able, however, and autonomously, to suspend the supply of gas, electricity, water for added security in the event of a major earthquake. Residents in areas further away from the epicenter will have several seconds to take shelter before the arrival of the waves S. The time will increase in proportion to the distance from the epicenter.

The Actuator Device

The ACTUATOR DEVICE, depending on how to connect by the end user, performs the following functions:


  • Sounder / Visual front seismic incoming and expected intensity
  • Solenoid gas block to prevent leakages breaking conducted
  • Lock Solenoid Water system for flooding / electrocution
  • Block power line for danger fire / electric shock / explosions

Offices - Workshops - Shipyards - Condominiums - More in general

  • Evacuation / activation procedures safeguard.
  • Opening access doors, gates, bars access, turnstiles etc. (banks, post offices, access to public places).
  • Block automatic cranes, tools and devices dangerous construction sites, workshops, factories etc.
  • Ignition hazard lights (discos, offices, etc).
  • Block elevators and garage floor.
  • Block and commissioning protection of cable cars and other assets at risk in case of earthquake.
  • Block trains and trams.
  • Disabling Power lines to avoid danger of explosion, fire and electric shock.
  • Lock gas distribution network.
  • Block distribution water mains.

Monitor & Control

Station Monitoring and Control is the structure that has the task to record, codify and disseminate the data collected by sensors in the territory where they are installed.

NOC - Network Operation Center, manned H / 24 and made structures Networking fully redundant, has the task of verifying in real time the functionality and efficiency of the connectivity of the network of sensors.

Server from the station monitoring the pulse is sent to excite the OPERATOR in your possession.
