AbstractThe present guidebook was prepared for the fieldtrip during the Kick off meeting of the project titled “Strategies and tools for Real Time Earthquake RisK ReducTion” (REAKT). It reports information on the geology of the Somma-Vesuvius volcanic area and illustrates the sites visited during the field excursion. The guide mostly benefited of contributions coming from some previous guidebooks (Cioni et al., 1995; Orsi et al., 1998); it also includes some interesting results available in the main and most recent literature. The fieldtrip will be devoted to illustrating i) the major morphological and structural features of the Somma-Vesuvius volcano, and ii) the deposits of the eruptions and their impact on the territory. The trip will end with the tour of the Osservatorio Vesuviano edifice that preserves the memory of the oldest volcanological observatory in the world and hosts a museum and two scientific exibitions.
