The natural disasters that hit the Italian Apennines with increasing frequency, earthquakes, landslides and floods, cause enormous damage to people and things, modifying economies and social contexts, already affected by the scarcity and antiquity of infrastructures and the abandonment of some territories, located in particular in the inner areas of the country. Peripheral urban contexts of the Inner Areas are exposed to “isolation Risks” in case of catastrophic events, as witnessed after the 2016 seismic events, where secondary infrastructure network was heavily affected, bringing great problems for those living in the areas. The paper explores methodologies to bring substantial modifications to the villages and minor urban areas structure (for the damaged buildings and for the infrastructural network) that the reconstruction allows, making it a unique occasion to renew and reorganise the territory.
