Italian levels may be infuenced by the Messina earthquake of 1908 - see Bottari et al., tectonophysics, 202, 269-275, 1992

The stations Porto Maurizio (250/001), Napoli Arsenale (250/041) and Napoli Mandraccio (250/051) appear to each have a datum shift around 1910. Evidence for regional coherence?

Documentation added 1993-07-30

Not a good looking record - evidence for several datum shifts. Reggio Calabria is an historic station. Last data 1967
