Earthquake in Italy is insurable
Italy is a country with a high risk of natural disasters. Over the last 2,000 years, more than 400 destructive earthquakes have been documented in Italy. In more recent history, the L’Aquila quake of 2009 killed more than 300 people and damaged some 10,000 buildings in L’Aquila and the Abruzzo region.
In an instant, an earthquake destroys homes, schools, churches, monuments, architectural and artistic heritage. It destroys any shelter, any security, any protection. And in a matter of seconds, apart from the physical damage, it permanently devastates the spirit.
Why is Italy so prone to earthquakes and how can we protect ourselves? How can we anticipate events? We list some of the material, showing that natural disaster insurance allows for a more secure and swift recovery within the affected area. It also guarantees the direct support as well as automatic freeing up of funds, sometimes even within a few hours after a catastrophe, or during the emergency itself.
