The city of Amandola, in the Marche region of Italy, suffered a series of earthquakes in 2016.  They were of unusual length, and affected an extensive area, resulting in the loss of a significant amount of cultural heritage.

This conference, concentrating on a single town, brings together international experts ranging from the disciplines of engineering, earth sciences, sociology, architecture, history and the history of art, to address holistically an issue that is frequently only looked at with a narrow focus.  It will introduce a number of longer-term research and education programmes, to be based in the town of Amandola itself.
