    The 2016-2017 seismic sequence in the Central Apennines has been the most severe seismic crisis in Italy since the 1980 Irpinia earthquake in southern Italy. The sequence, characterised by three main shocks in three months (Mw 6.2, 5.9 and 6.5, this latter on 30 October 2016), affected a vast area some hundreds of km wide. The seismic events were caused by the activation of normal faults whose Quaternary activity has strongly influenced the long-term evolution of the region. The field trip aims at sharing the recent achievements on the relationship between active faulting, large earthquakes and the Quaternary evolution of this portion of the Italian territory, comparing the neotectonic imprint of extensional faulting with the coseismic effects of the 2016-2017 seismic sequence, such as its interaction with Neogene pre-existing contractional structures. In this respect, the central Apennines are a key area to investigate the role played by tectonics in shaping mountain belts over long time spans. 

    Indeed, the three-day field trip in the epicentral area will give the attendees the opportunity to “touch” earthquake faults and experience the fascinating tectonic environment they have contributed to shape.
