Photographs of Old Apice: Two earthquake of the sixth and seventh degree on the Mercalli scale in 1962 caused 17 deaths at Apex. The damage caused by the earthquake was considerable, and the Ministry of Public Works ordered the evacuation of the areas affected by the earthquake. However, many inhabitants, despite the evacuation order, continued to live in the village of Apice until 1980. In 1980, it was the earthquake of Irpinia that gave the coup de grace to this pretty village dating back to the eighth century AD.
