Main Article Content
The earthquake of August 24, 2016 hit an Apenninic "border” area, now at the crossroads of four regions, but for many past centuries on the edge of two independent Italian states. The geographic, cultural and historical marginality of this area did certainly affect the level of knowledge available on its historical seismicity. However, the recent publication of the new Italian Macroseismic Database and Parametric Catalogue produces a significant improvement of knowledge, based on the analysis of new sources on two major seismic clusters that characterize the seismic history of the area. Further improvements are possible, but these new data define what are the key issues that research is now facing.
