Short summary
This work represents the extension of a previous investigation of the 1783 lethal landslide–tsunami, provoking more than 1500 casualties in the coastal town of Scilla. The effects of the tsunami are assessed here over a wider domain and compared with the available observations from historical reports. The eastern end of Sicily (Capo Peloro) is the most affected site in the far-field. A tentative reconstruction of the coeval topography of the area is also realized, with interesting results.
