Abstract
The aims of this paper are to suggest a preliminary sociological definition of vulnerability to disasters, to discuss this notion in relation to different levels of sociosystemic complexity and, only for heuristic purposes, to present a tentative and synthetic conceptual schema for the assessment of the overall vulnerability of a social (sub) system.
