The vulnerability due to climate change of urban areas is a topic of particular relevance in Italy for the impacts on the economy, population and infrastructure. Italy, for its geological and geomorphological characteristics, is naturally predisposed to instability and erosion looking also at the coastal urban environment.

The main objective of the researcher employed in this work will be to build a portfolio of climate-proof adaptation solutions for urban areas, architectural structures and infrastructures. Resiliency, in this case, is meant to help citizens, organizations, technicians and fragile ecosystems to resist and even flourish in such dramatic conditions.
