Abstract: The province of L¿Aquila in central Italy was hit by a 5.8 ML earthquake in the night of 6 April 2009. The maximum intensity was estimated at 8.5 MCS, evidenced by heavy damage or collapse of many buildings, including heritage ones. 67.500 persons were in need of assistance in the following weeks. This report presents the information collected during a field mission by means of an extensive photographic documentation, focusing on the behaviour of reinforced concrete and masonry buildings. Moreover, the evolution of the building codes in Italy is reviewed.
