Abstract
The town of Durrës (Albania), is located in a high-risk area for natural events (earthquakes, landslides, floods) that the Illyrian and Greek communities had to deal with since the earliest occupation.
This paper outlines an overview of the seismic events occurred in the city of Epidamnos-Dyrrachium-Dyrrachion. The research is based on comparative analysis of various disciplines: the documentary sources available from 58 BC until today; geological seismic data (structural scheme, micro seismic zoning, geophysical data, geomorphological evidence) and archaeological traces, mostly identified in the amphitheater (collapses and victims) but also in other sites.
The multidisciplinary analysis allows to interpret differently the legendary founding of the town by Heracles, whose cult was significantly established to dominate the damaging effects of earthquakes.
The frequent-recurring succession of seismic events highlights the danger level of the area, densely populated today and brutally urbanized over the past 15 years.

Io tremo, e vi accorgerete che sono pur sempre la dura terra.
Terra selvaggia. Terra che ancora si muove, che scarta
e strappa, nonostante la camicia di forza in cemento armato
che le avete stretto addosso.
