Flooding in urban areas is one of the main weather-related risk problems of the last decades. It is due to the fact that the population is growing and moving from the rural areas to the cities, which become more urbanized and densely populated. This phenomenon is combined with the climate changes of the last years, that present an increase of short but quite intense rainfall events. These conditions determine a fast and short-time response of the catchments, which increases the probability of flooding.
