I wrote something on thelast earthquake in Italy on 36th Octobrt. This earthquake is important like any other Italian earthquake. It serves to confirm the usual trends, to reject common and established narratives given, and to add hidden perspectives which are now urgent, as very briefly presented here.

On The Conversation,
+Jason von Meding and I tried to explain why in Haiti each natural hazard becomes a disaster, why the country is so vulnerable, and who has to be blamed for most of these issues

"In Haiti, many aspects of risk and vulnerability have very deep roots in colonial history. The structural injustice existing in society has been compounded by recent trends in international economics. These have worked to exacerbate widespread vulnerability and exposure"

Ad aprile sono ritornato a Christchurch e ho avuto modo di parlare con alcune persone sullo stato della ricostruzione. Ho pertanto pubblicato un contributo su Sismografie, sezione del blog Lavoro Culturale, che ospita una serie di riflessioni sulla gestione dei terremoti dopo i fatti del 24 agosto.

I wrote a blog post about the earthquake in Italy. While we have been inundated by analysis about the factors contributing to the disaster and the future step to be done for an effective seismic DRR in Italy, I focused on some of the stereotypes and on the partial analysis through which the Italian disaster scenario has been described.
