Abstract: The village of San Gregorio (L'Aquila, Italy) was severely damaged by the April 6, 2009 earthquake. San Gregorio is situated at the base of a carbon- ate relief bounded by the Aterno river alluvial plain. The geological features of the area are very complex: jointed carbonate bedrock, cemented gravels and alluvial fan crop out in the village. Co-seismic ground fractures were seen along SW dip- ping active fault segments crossing San Gregorio. We integrated the microzona- tion studies with new geological, geotechnical and geophysical data for supporting the reconstruction planning of the village. Noise measurements show strong and polarized peaks in the horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratios (H/V) in the 3-7 Hz frequency band. Interestingly, the alluvial fan and the outcropping rock masses show both H/V peaks. To understand the influence of rock mass joint condition on site effect, we performed structural surveys on carbonate bedrock to look for a possible correlation between rock fracturing and ground-motion amplification
