Context. Classical Cepheids (DCEPs) represent a fundamental tool to calibrate the extragalactic distance scale. However, they are also powerful stellar population tracers in the context of Galactic studies. The forthcoming Data Release 3 of the Gaia mission will allow us to study, with unprecedented detail, the structure, the dynamics, and the chemical properties of the Galactic disc, and in particular of the spiral arms, where most Galactic DCEPs reside. Aims. In this paper we aim to quantify…

An Updated Metal-dependent Theoretical Scenario for Classical Cepheids

To properly quantify the possible residual systematic errors affecting the classical Cepheid distance scale, a detailed theoretical scenario is recommended. By extending the set of nonlinear,
