Summary from the book
The broad definition of earthquake culture includes scientific research and implementation of its findings to update the regulatory framework and educate citizens about seismic hazards.
The contribution of science stems from a long history of geological research on the causes of earthquakes in the Abruzzo lands. This is accompanied by a growing commitment by researchers to training and informing citizens of Abruzzo earthquake defense issues.
The second aspect, using scientific progress to the benefit of civil society, is the evolution of seismic classification over a century. Its update was not constant, but conditioned by periodic shaking and subsequent damage.
Finally, the degree of knowledge and awareness of risk on the part of citizens is measured in the limited concern for seismic hazards and building safety. This tendency arises from the planning of the political actions – which reflect the tendencies of the population – which are the subject of the programs in the municipalities of Abruzzo.
Therefore, the concept of three speeds represents aspects of earthquake culture: the stability of the progress of scientific knowledge, the instability of the remarkable development of legislation, and the slow growth of awareness and conscience among citizens.
