- “La strategia antincendio: definizione di una corretta strategia complessiva antincendio a partire dalla valutazione del rischio di incendio” (2 h, CFP)
During the same event, an intervention in conference mode will also be held in the plenary hall (600 seats) regarding the use of the Bow-Tie method in fire prevention planning and substantial fire safety for complex situations.
