Description :
This paper was spurred by the 6 April 2009, L’Aquila earthquake. Although the earthquake was not major compared with other catastrophic events, this destructive earthquake led to a thorough review of the geometry – and style, in some instances – that characterises earthquake faulting in this region. The poorly expressed field evidence of the 6 April event, especially in light of the damage it caused in the mesoseismal area, stressed the intrinsic limitation of the earthquake geologist' toolbox. Do the evident faults mapped by previous workers all correspond to potential seismogenic sources? The AA. aim at addressing this paradox by drawing an updated seismotectonic model of Abruzzi based on the lessons learned following the 2009 earthquake. The model is based on selected geological, geomorphological, seismological, historical and geodetic data and will ultimately feed an updated version of the DISS database (http://diss.rm.ingv.it/diss/). - (NF)
