Criticism

Geologists have criticised the poor state in which many of the buildings on Ischia condition. They pointed out that precisely because of this, in a relatively weak earthquake, major damage could occur. Especially in the villages of Casamicciola and Lacco Ameno are many buildings heavily damaged.

Italy is governed by the earthquakes struck, but which are usually in the middle of Italy. In August last year there were 299 deaths due to an earthquake in the area around the site Amatrice.
