Chart shows the trend of E3CI in Italy from 1 January 1 2010 to 31 May 2021. Index values greater than zero are shown in red, while values less than zero are shown in blue. The higher the values in red, the more intense are the phenomena described by the index with respect to the reference values. The peak visible in red values represents Vaia storm, which hit northern Italy in October 2018. The five-year moving average of E3CI is represented in black to highlight the increasing trend of anomalies.
