The article try to understand how the community of the town of Norcia in Umbria reacted and activated processes of social and territorial resilience to try to mitigate, absorb and cope with the consequences of the earthquake of 2016. Because extreme events change communi-ties in a way not predictable and the consequences of their impact are different, based on the various responsiveness of individuals or social groups, the work has particularly deepened the aspects of the space-individual relationship and daily practices, but also those of social net-works and family ties, trying to understand if they have been strengthened or if a breakdown of communities has occurred.
