Cultural Heritage (CH) is part of our social environment and it is linked to our European identity. While preservation of life and property will always be the priority in any disaster situation, other 'assets', such as the preservation of cultural heritage has also become significant components in disaster management.
The impact of earthquake disasters on cultural heritage is usually severe and immediate and often irreparable because cultural heritage sites and items are particularly vulnerable to the effects of the disasters as they are finite, rare, valuable and non-renewable (therefore, the cost of losing them is really high).
