Gambatesa's Location within Italy and within the Province of Campobasso

Gambatesa is about 55 miles from Naples, and about 125 miles from Rome, as lines are drawn on a map. But whereas Gambatesa is 14 miles away from the provincial capital city of Campobasso by map lines, it is 27 miles away from that city by road. The villages of Molise are in the highlands and the roads are switchback.

Gambatesa's Location and within the Province of Campobasso

Earthquake Notes. On 31 October 2002 there was a large earthquake in the Province of Campobasso. The roof of a school collapsed in San Giuliano di Puglia, killing twenty-seven young children. The Comune ("village and its agricultural territory") of San Giuliano di Puglia is on the far right side of the map below, near the center.

The epicenter of the earthquake was 4.5 miles northeast of the village of Casacalenda. In Gambatesa, 16 miles south of the epicenter, there was little damage beyond a crack in one wall of the Church of San Bartolomeo Apostolo (now repaired) and in Vicolo del Orologio (photograph).

Snowfall. From the night of Thursday 5 January 2017 to Monday morning 9 January 2017, there was heavy snowfall across the Apennine Mountains. Three feet of snow fell in Campobasso during those days.
