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: The M=6.2 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 recorded at Norica peaked at about 0.375 g, consistent with the map, although more records might soon become available with higher (and lower) shaking.
