Abstract

People know and perceive risk differently. This study investigates perceptions, knowledge and opinions on landslide risk by the residents of Sarno, a small town in southern Italy, which was significantly affected by disastrous landslides on 5-6 May 1998. The paper presents the main results of a survey conducted in the months of March, April and May 2013, using a purposefully developed questionnaire. The questionnaire was administered through individual interviews to 100 residents, chosen to include a significant percentage of people living inside (60) and outside (40) the so-called “red zone”, a territory declared at high residual risk after the events of 1998.
