Among other evidence, this paper eventually underlines that central Italy -the scenario of the 2016 Amatrice earthquake- was an area characterised by a high seismic risk since the late Middle Ages. An aspect which reminds us how relative are concepts such… Read More “Exploring representativeness and reliability for late medieval earthquakes in Europe” published in Natural Hazards.
