Yesterday, seven scientists have been condemned to six years of prison by their irresponsible actuation in relationship with the earthquake in the Abruzzo (Italy) in 2009.

The Court of L’Aquila, capital of the Abruzzo, condemned yesterday to seven members of the Commission of Big Risks.

In April 2009, a week before a big earthquake shook the region of the Abruzzo, they were there without taking any measure of prevention in case of a possible strong earthquake and knowing that several little previous earthquake had been shaking the area.

The Court has considered them culprits of homicide and different serious damages.


At down, on April 6, 2009, Paganica (at 10 kilometers of L’Aquila) was the epicenter of a earthquake (measuring 6,3 degrees on the moment magnitude scale (Mw). The earthquake killed 308 people and wounded more than 1,500 people in the region of the Abruzzo. About 65,000 people were evacuated, almost all of the city, and a great part of them, still today, have not returned to their homes.


The trial started on September 20, 2009 and they have been evaluating the personal damages as well as the ruin of the historical center of L’Aquila, a medieval beautiful city, and of very many villages of the central region in the Abruzzo.

The trial has considered the scientists tremendously irresponsible.

It is a hard sentence but perhaps it is necessary to prevent future disasters. People should take more seriously their work, above all when people can be in distress. We hope this beautiful region recovers soon.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
