Title: Survey of churches damaged by the 2012 Emilia-Romagna earthquake sequence
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: This report presents an overview of the damage that was observed in fourteen churches that were hit by the May 2012Emilia-Romagna earthquake sequence. The data was collected over the course of a two-day reconnaissance mission thattook place on the 9th and 10th of July 2012, and that involved researchers from the Civil engineering Department of theFaculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and of the University of Aveiro, both institutions from Portugal.It is noted that the current report only focusses the post-seismic damage assessment of churches and does not address thecultural and artistic losses associated to movable or immovable heritage. Furthermore, it is also referred that since thereconnaissance mission took place after the major earthquakes of the 20th and the 29th of May, the source of the reporteddamages is not assigned to a particular event and must be seen as the cumulative effect of several ground motions.
