Abstract: The investigation on the spatio-temporal distribution of large earthquakes is still a controversial issue in geophysics and many works in scientific literature have been devoted to this topic. The importance of understanding the statistical distribution of large events is aimed not only to extract information on the physics of the earthquakes occurrence process, but also to make reliable earthquake forecasting. As far as theoretical aspects are concerned, a satisfactory modelling may allow, at least in principle, to test a variety of hypotheses, such as the presence of any regularity in time, and the in uence of di erent tectonic/physical factors that regulate the spatial occurrence of earthquakes. At the same time, a reliable earthquake forecasting has undoubtedly a huge social impact because it may mitigate the seismic risk.
