Abstract: Abstract The MUon RAdiography of VESuvius (MURAVES) project is aimed at studying the summital cone of Mt. Vesuvius, an active and hazardous volcano near Naples, Italy. A detailed Monte Carlo simulation frame- work is necessary in order to investigate the effects of the experimental constraints and to perform compar- isons with the actual observations. Our Monte Carlo setup combines a variety of Monte Carlo programs that address different aspects of cosmic muon simulation, from muon generation in the Earth’s upper at- mosphere to the response of the detector, including the interactions with the material of the volcano. We will elaborate on the rationale for our technical choices, including the trade-off between speed and accu- racy, and on the lessons learned, which are of general interest for similar use cases in muon radiography.
