Title: Vesuvius is number 1 enemy

The risk of volcanoes in Italy. A qualitative evaluation of the level of relative risk indicates that the Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei are the volcanic areas where the risk is higher (medium-low probability of eruption, very high damages), this is considering the probability of eruption in the next ten years, the population and the properties exposed.
