Defining a model of 3D seismogenic sources for Seismic Hazard Assessment applications: The case of central Apennines (Italy)
Geology-based methods for Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA) have been developing in Italy. These methods require information on the geometric, kinematic and energetic parameters of theExpand

Layered Seismogenic Source Model and Probabilistic Seismic-Hazard Analyses in Central Italy
We defined a seismogenic model for central Italy based on three layers of sources and computed the relative seismic-hazard maps. One layer is constituted by individual structures liable to generateExpand

The 1984 Abruzzo earthquake (Italy): an example of seismogenic process controlled by interaction between differently oriented synkinematic faults
The evolution of the seismogenic process associated with the Ms 5.8 Sangro Valley earthquake of May 1984 (Abruzzo, central Italy) is closely controlled by the Quaternary extensional tectonic patternExpand

FiSH: MATLAB Tools to Turn Fault Data into Seismic‐Hazard Models
We have developed a package of MATLAB tools (called FiSH ), designed to help seismic‐hazard modelers analyze fault data. Expand

Present activity and seismogenic potential of a low-angle normal fault system (Città di Castello, Italy): Constraints from surface geology, seismic reflection data and seismicity
Abstract We present new constraints on an active low-angle normal fault system in the Citta di Castello–Sansepolcro basin (CSB) of the northern Apennines of Italy. New field data from the geologicalExpand

Predicted ground motion after the L’Aquila 2009 earthquake (Italy, Mw 6.3): input spectra for seismic microzoning
After the April 6th 2009 L’Aquila earthquake (Mw 6.3), where 306 people died and a further 60,000 were displaced, seismic microzoning investigations have been carried out for towns affected by aExpand

Do static stress changes of a moderate-magnitude earthquake significantly modify the regional seismic hazard? Hints from the L'Aquila 2009 normal-faulting earthquake (Mw 6.3, central Italy)
We investigated the Coulomb stress changes in the active faults surrounding a moderate-magnitude normal-faulting earthquake (2009 L’Aquila, Mw 6.3) and the associated variations in the expectedExpand

Error propagation in time-dependent probability of occurrence for characteristic earthquakes in Italy
Time-dependent models for seismic hazard and earthquake probabilities are at the leading edge of research nowadays. In the framework of a 2-year national Italian project (2005–2007), we have appliedExpand

Fault-Based Earthquake Rupture Forecast in Central Italy: Remarks after the L'Aquila Mw 6.3 Event
Abstract In 2006 we published an earthquake hazard model called LASSCI (LAyered Seismogenic Source model in central Italy). In October 2008 we began to update the model for use in 5- and 10-yearExpand
