A page is dedicated to the events that, throughout history, have struck the Mediterranean and Italy; from the same page users can click on an in-depth section regarding the 2002 Stromboli earthquake.
The third page is dedicated to the monitoring and alert system active on the national territory; the fourth page anticipates possibile developments of the system, including Italy's participation - in particular the Civil Protection Department's - to the NEAMTWS- North Eastern Atlantic & Med Tsunami Warning System project, for the creation of an alert system of North-East Atlantic, Mediterranean and surrounding seas.
