  • “I think the fear that it can happen makes people more resilient,” Santini went on.

Santini, 50, a restaurant owner and published poet, has lived most of his life in Posta, a town of 800 in central Italy’s Apennine mountains.  The three most powerful earthquakes in Italy in the last 20 years — with epicenters in Umbria, L’Aquila, and Wednesday’s magnitude 6.2 temblor near Amatrice — form a triangle, with Posta right in the middle. And yet the town has for the most part remained unscathed.
