Camerino, situated in central Italy, encompasses a rich tapestry of historical and cultural landmarks, including medieval architecture and educational institutions like the University of Camerino. The town is surrounded by diverse natural landscapes, from the scenic Apennine Mountains to rural and agricultural areas, providing a picturesque backdrop. Camerino’s urban and residential areas, complemented by green spaces and water features, contribute to its unique charm and appeal.


In the central area of Italy, where camerino is located, a maximum increase of 1 day in precipitation is noted, with a higher anomaly anticipated in the absence of mitigation policies, potentially elevating the risk of weather-induced landslides due to modified precipitation patterns and the vulnerability of the region. Simultaneously, there is an expected significant rise in heating degree days and heat waves for this area and other Italian regions. Regarding earthquakes, the Civil Protection classifies seven Italian regions, including Marche, as high risk due to a high probability of seismic activity.

The Italian demo site is set to implement various components from the MULTICLIMACT toolkit, providing valuable insights for potential replication. This is particularly crucial in Italy, given the extensive seismic risk across a broad area, as well as in other countries using similar construction techniques, alongside addressing individualized climate-related hazards. The project encompasses resilient energy retrofit interventions for climate-proofing the built environment, human-centered design to enhance health and well-being, innovative materials like self-sensing EECs and eco-friendly mortar, and digital solutions including a Decision Support System for natural disaster prevention and damage estimation.Along with the bike lane, 10 linear meters will also be paved located in front of the entrance to the University parking lot. This tram is outside the linear circulation of the road, and will only have the objective of checking the mechanical resistance of this permeable pavement in front of heavy vehicles.
