The fallout of the Friuli earthquake

V. Petrini

Received: 13 February 2018; accepted: 18 June 2018

Abstract

The aim of this paper is not to commemorate the Friuli earthquake and the reconstruction process; as a matter of fact, over the 40 years after the earthquake a great deal of words have been spent on these topics. What the paper seeks to highlight is the fact that the Friuli earthquake represented a milestone for the Italian way of viewing seismic risk mitigation. To support this statement, the paper deals only with some fi elds in which important changes have been introduced after the Friuli earthquake:
- the joint effect of the earthquake and a research project (the Finalized Geodynamics Project, initiated shortly before the Friuli earthquake by the National Research Council), had an important impact on organising the research in all the fi elds related to seismic risk mitigation;
- the Friuli earthquake triggered a signifi cant change in the way of viewing seismic zoning;
- the previous philosophy of seismic code for masonry buildings was drastically changed and the new approach has been introduced for reconstruction after the earthquake;
- the vulnerability analysis of existing buildings and historical monuments;
- microzonation.
The processes initiated by the Friuli earthquake in the above-mentioned fi elds are still continuing.
