Montone is a small town composed by a well preserved historical centre surrounded by a wall system and few recent urban tissues, displaced along the main roads. The research’s aim was to develop seismic vulnerability valuation methods based on a urban view; they had to be fast, modular and useful in the planning process. This choices had three consequences. First of all, even though the historical centre was the main topic, its situation has been studied considering the whole city and its relations with the territorial context. Then only usual urban analysis data have been used, with few little integrations to focus on the research’s objectives. Lastly, different evaluation levels at different scales have been linked together.
