  "abstract": "<p>The survey of the damage occurred on land, buildings and infrastructures<br>\nextensively affected by liquefaction, coupled with a comprehensive investigation of the subsoil<br>\nproperties enables to identify the factors that determine the spatial distribution of the phenomenon.<br>\nWith this goal, a database was created in a Geographic Information platform merging<br>\nrecords of local seismicity, subsoil layering evaluated by cone penetration tests and<br>\ngroundwater level distribution for the relevant case study of San Carlo (Emilia Romagna-<br>\nItaly) struck by a severe earthquake in 2012. Here liquefaction phenomena were observed on a<br>\nportion of the village in the form of sand ejecta, lateral spreading and various damages on<br>\nbuildings and infrastructures. The location of damage allows to test possible relations with the<br>\nfactors characterizing susceptibility, triggering and severity of liquefaction. The relation<br>\namong the different variables has been herein sought by training a specifically implemented<br>\nArtificial Neural Network. A relation has thus been inferred between damage and thickness of<br>\nthe liquefiable layer and of the upper crust, seismic input and soil characteristics.</p>",
