Lidar and near-surface measurements were carried out during the summer 2017, when a huge fire interested Naples surrounding area. During this event a large quantity of ash was dispersed in the environment. Due to the coincidence of the Saharan Dust transport event and the big fire on Mount Vesuvius, the particulate matter concentration at ground increased considerably starting from the evening of the 11th of July, also in the city surroundings. A coordinated approach using simultaneously in situ and remote-sensing instruments, satellite images and model results allowed to monitor aerosol optical and microphysical properties. Results will be analysed and discussed.
