Yeah I covered those June 2012 quakes on eqarchives back then
Pianura padana emiliana, Italy 5.9ML 20/05/2012 02:03:52
Pianura padana emiliana, Italy 5.8ML 29/05/2012
Emilia-Romagna, Italy Aftershock Map
I'm not sure they are directly related though
This latest event and aftershocks are on the western side of the Apennines, in Lucca, Tuscany, but some of the aftershocks do cross over into
But then provinces are just a line drawn on a map, what I'm interested in is the seismic regions and where they sit.
F_E Regions aren't much good as its just Northern, Central and Southern Italy.
On the INGV main site they give the seismic region for some of the events as
"Distretto sismico: Garfagnana"
the area of the June 2012 events is shown as
"Distretto sismico: Pianura_padana_emiliana"
shows Garfagnana quite well
and this map
There is probably a map somewhere on INGV that shows all the seiesic regions of Italy but I haven't found it yet.
28 new aftershocks since I last looked 12 hours ago, so they are easing off. (104 in the first 11.5hrs)

Actually it was this link that caught my attention on that BBC link,
Set against Africa's march northward at about 2cm a year, Italy is also being pulled and pushed in some complex motions.
The Tyrrhenian Basin, or Sea, which lies to the west of the country, between the mainland and Sardinia/Corsica, is slowly opening up.
Scientists say this is contributing to extension, or "pull-apart", along the Apennines, the belt of mountains that runs down through central Italy.
And to the east, in the Adriatic, there is some evidence that the Earth's crust continues to move under (subducting) Italy, although there is
considerable debate about this. Recent GPS data suggests this region, too, is shifting to the northeast.
