Abstract: This paper presents the results obtained from the study of the macroseismic effects of the June 12, 1995 Rome earthquake. The event, MD = 3.8, provoked VI degree MCS effects in neighbourhoods of Southern Rome. This earthquake is important within the framework of seismicity in the Rome area, as it is the first noteworthy one ever to be recorded in the instrumental age, and provides a good comparison with historical earthquakes which have occurred in the same area. The filtering procedure performed on the macroseismic field reveals out the anomalies of the attenuation pattern and the site effect. The results reconfirm what has only recently emerged from the analysis of historical earthquakes, i.e. Rome is affected by local seismicity, that can cause damage in the southern neighbourhoods and the downtown area, especially where the site contributes to the amplification of the effects.
