We propose a seismic-modeling methodology to model ground motion caused by earthquakes. The algorithm is a full-wave solver based on the Fourier and Chebyshev method to compute the spatial derivatives. The seismograms are simulated by kinematic faulting and involve a 3D simulator including surface and body waves and intrinsic attenuation. As an example, we simulate the 1908 Messina earthquake, computing the accelerations at the coasts of Sicily and Calabria.
