– The Italian earthquakes of recent decades created an emergency situation that required immediate post-earthquake reconstruction policies, which led to an increase in the demand for construction minerals. In particular, extraction in active quarries has been intensified, and new quarries opened according to extraordinary procedures notwithstanding current regulations. The objective of this work is to assess the consequences that a seismic event may produce on both the built environment, i.e. the totality of urban and suburban settlements and infrastructure, and the natural environment, which is often compromised by hasty emergency procedures aimed at mineral extraction. In such a context, recycling the earthquake debris and a correct evaluation of the demand for minerals are the fundamental elements of coherent planning of quarrying activity, by means of which post-earthquake policies could be reconciled with environmental protection.
