This article presents results obtained by using data from the #italiasicura web platform that was developed by Fondazione Politecnico di Milano and released in 2015 to show country to local level hazard maps and risk reduction projects in Italy.
Using this tool, an awareness-oriented web analytics process was structured to develop a set of indicators for the increase of knowledge linked to ﬂood and landslide hazards. In so doing, it is possible to measure community disaster awareness actions and competence in the area of hazard knowledge.
Italy is signiﬁcantly affected by ever-present ﬂood and landslide risks and has experienced many disasters. Local social awareness and engagement, however, differ and need to be increased by decision makers and citizens through improvements in risk preparedness.
