In this chapter we give an informal introduction to the multiscale model and present some case studies of interest for applications, along with related numerical simulations. Results presented here are somehowcomplementary to those usually presented by physicists, engineers, and computer scientists. Indeed, we aim at showing how mathematical modeling can help in developing truthful pedestrian models, and at giving a sample of phenomena which can be simulated without the introduction of artificial or ad hoc effects.
