This is the national seismic hazard map of Italy, produced by the INGV (equivalent of the USGS in the United States), annotated with the recent earthquake. The map proved prescient in that the quake struck in the zone of highest hazard, which runs down the spine of the Apennine ranges of central and southern Italy. The shaking recorded for the M=6.2 earthquake peaked at about 0.35 g, very consistent with the map, although more records might soon become available with higher (and lower) shaking.
