The experimentations carried out for the Sisma project involved the historical centres of San Piero and Santa Sofia, two settlements in the province of Forlì-Cesena, on the border with Tuscany (Italy). Both have undergone the urban vulnerability and the exposure assessment (using regional methods) and the seismic behavioural study of the building aggregates. The first assessments aid in defining the strategical choices (along with the set up of the rehabilitation plans), for the preservation policy and enhancement policy of the public spaces. The second (the seismic behavioural study), in the rehabilitation plans, aims at ‘guiding’ the building transformation with rules and regulations which integrate the preservation of historical heritage along with seismic strengthening.
