In the last 25 centuries a great amount of data regarding precursory phenomena of seismic events have been gathered and recorded by observers, whether professional, casual or indirect. Such data have been better systematized in the last 120 years and have become the object of systematical applied research in the last 30 years in coincidence with a better understanding of physical and chemical phenomena which accompany earthquake occurrence. Rare-gases geochemistry played a fundamental role in earthquakes physics knowledge and in seismic prediction-oriented researches. The main procedures of diffusion of knowledge on earthquake prediction researches in space and time have been reconstructed. Scientific and economic constraint factors that caused difficulties or accelerations in seismic precursors researches have been investigated and commented.
