Vernacular settlements are mostly made up of buildings whose exceptional stability is testified by their survival over the centuries, even under natural and anthropogenic wounds. The unesco site of the Amalfi Coast shows a vast repertoire of cases to learn about the surviving examples of vernacular techniques and their structural qualities. It is possible to appreciate constructive protection measures that highlight the ancient actions to ensure the built environment’s safety. This research aims to represent an effort in the knowledge of the traditional mitigation measures, often considered simply as local architectural elements, analyzing a large number of protective devices on the Amalfi Coast, to take the right actions in the future recovery, conservation, and maintenance operations.
