•Since the ‘90s, the idea of a new intensity scale based only on environmental effects was promoted within the scientific community and successively developed in the frame of INQUA (International Union for Quaternary Research, INQUA TERPRO (Commission on Terrestrial Processes). •A Working Group including geologists, seismologists and engineers compiled a first version of the scale, that was presented at the 16th INQUA Congress in Reno (2003),and updated one year later at the 32nd International Geological Congress in Florence (Italy). •The ESI 2007 scale results from the revision of the former version by a world-widespread (Michetti et al., 2004) team of scientists.
