It was here in 1982 that the first nucleus of the Department was established under the leadership of Giuseppe Zamberletti, appointed extraordinary commissioner for the Irpinia earthquake in 1980.

The building dates back to the end of the 19th century and was one of the first buildings built in the Prati area of Rome, preceding the Court building next to it by a few years. Initially it held the offices of the national authority of ex-servicemen and now houses the offices of the Head of Department, the secretary, the Vice-Head of Department, the Legal counsellor, the Media office and the Human resources and IT systems management and the Insitutional Relations office.

As the years passed these offices became insufficient for the structure’s needs, which uses increasing amounts of scientific instruments for the risk forecasting and prevention activities and thus required more space.
