Using the available information about regional structural models, past seismicity, and the seismotectonic regime in Italy, we have generated a set of synthetic seismograms covering the whole Italian territory on a 0.2° × 0.2° grid. Peak values of ground motion (displacement, DMAX, and velocity, VMAX) and Design Ground Acceleration (DGA) based on Eurocode 8 (EC8, 1993), extracted from the synthetic signals, have been compared with the macroseismic intensities felt in Italy. The correlation relations that we have obtained are in a good agreement with empirical relationships given by other authors and compare quite well with the few observations available in the Italian territory.
