Floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes are natural/man-made catastrophes that, more and more frequently, strike across the world. From the Cinque Terre in Liguria (Italy), to Chile, from Japan to the US, man’s action is the main cause for environmental disasters. Territories are neglected and abandoned, the absence of soil preservation and well-conceived urban planning policies, and the underestimation of floods and earthquakes risks means there is no prevention either to ensure the safety of people or to build housing that can withstand the force of nature. In other words, things are only done after catastrophes have happened.
