The risk associated with rainfall-induced landslides in loose pyroclastic soils — which is widely spread across the world, especially in the subtropical zones — is recognized as increasing over the last decades, under the increasing heavy rainfalls likely caused by climate change and/or due to an exposure growth of communities and assets located at the foot of vulnerable slopes. In Italy, research has recently accelerated in investigating the hydrological behavior of these soils, especially after the famous events occurred in...
