We use Ambient Noise Tomography to obtain a 3D-Vs subsoil model below a building whose vibration levels were increased after the September 19, 2017 earthquake (M=7.1). The results show a combination of structural shape and the seismic response induced by the subsoil heterogeneity, have been provoked damage in the structure.
