Abstract: DISS Version 3.0.4 This version of the Database contains over 100 individual seismogenic sources and over 80 seismogenic areas. Both categories are based on geological/geophysical data and cover the whole Italian territory and some conterminous regions. This version also incorporates: a totally new set of macroseismic sources based on the lately release historical earthquake catalogue: DBMI04, il database delle osservazioni macrosismiche dei terremoti italiani utilizzate per la compilazione del catalogo parametrico CPTI04 [Stucchi et al. (2007);]; several updated sources and a few new sources based on the outcomes of the project INGV-DPC S2 Valutazione del potenziale sismogenetico e probabilità dei forti terremoti in Italia (Assessment of the seismogenic potential and probability of large earthquakes in Italy). This version also includes: over 2,100 selected references to scientific literature specifically pertinent to the identified seismogenic sources; new source-specific pictures selected from the literature, such as geological maps, cross-sections, and photographs. This version of the Database was primarily developed for use among the scientists who participated in the project INGV-DPC S2 "Valutazione del potenziale sismogenetico e probabilità dei forti terremoti in Italia" (Assessment of the seismogenic potential and probability of large earthquakes in Italy) - as the contribution of UR1.1 (task 1) for the project - who are informed on all its possible flaws and limitations. All other users are therefore cautioned in using version 3.0.4 in any application. As a product of the same project were also DISS versions 3.0.2 and 3.0.3.
