The recent catastrophic events in central Italy reveal how the Italian regulatory framework for managing disaster risk, especially to cultural heritage, is inadequate and needs urgent policy reforms. In this context, the article aims to identify and discuss the main challenges for catastrophic risk management in Italy, considering the adoption of an ex-ante compensation model including insurance tools with particular reference to cultural heritage protection. To this end, the article uses the insurance capacity theory (Cassandro, 1968; Stone, 1973) as main theoretical framework and a deductive approach, with the results of an extensive survey that Imperiale et al.

Abstract

The recent catastrophic events in central Italy reveal how the Italian regulatory framework for managing disaster risk, especially to cultural heritage, is inadequate and needs urgent policy reforms. In this context, the article aims to identify and discuss the main challenges for catastrophic risk management in Italy, considering the adoption of an ex-ante compensation model including insurance tools with particular reference to cultural heritage protection. To this end, the article uses the insurance capacity theory (Cassandro, 1968; Stone, 1973) as main theoretical framework and a deductive approach, with the results of an extensive survey that Imperiale et al. (2016) carried out in 2015 concerning the Italian insurance market
