In Italy an important contribution towards the integration of risk analysis in the process of territorial government was given by some recent research projects: the Project Interreg III B Sisma (System integrated for security management activities 2004-07) and the National research program (Prin) The safeguarding of historical and cultural values, along with the landscape in the Italian seismic zones (2002-04). Both projects pay particular attention to the prevention and mitigation of seismic risk in the historical centres.
