Green roof represents a sustainable solution in urban environment providing several benefits such as ecological advantages, stormwater management and energy saving. Numerous studies have focused on the evaluation of the efficiency of green roof by monitoring thermo-physical variables. Whereas most of the studies have been conducted in cold weather conditions, only little research has been performed in Mediterranean climate. An extensive green roof, divided into four compartments, characterized by different layers and materials is built on the 46C Building at the University of Calabria (Italy), in order to analyse the effect of the diverse components on thermo-physical behaviour of the system. The experimental site is equipped with measurement instrumentation and data acquisition system to continuously monitor thermo-physical parameters, such as temperature and water content throughout the entire stratigraphy. The monitoring data will be used for evaluating the thermo-physical behaviour of the green roof in Mediterranean climate.
