This book analyzes land's vulnerability and abusive built vulnerability. It describes the risks related to natural and artificial disasters and also investigates on the use of appropriate technologies to protect and preserve the existing assets. The work reports some results selected during the scientific conference organized by Municipality of Kos City in agreement with University of Palermo and University of Molise.

The meeting was realized 75 years after the quake which destroyed the Kos City, with the aim to deepen the scientific research on abusiveness comparing the phenomenon to natural catastrophes, in fact the abuse on territories increases the risk of disasters.
