"I felt it" reports:
Luino, VA, Italy / MMI III (Weak shaking): it was more at 4 am, it woke me up and I had to step out of bed to make sure it was ok and not dangerous. After I started to check immediately on the internet for real time information. I'm not sure It is the same earth quake, seems a little distant for it, but it's the only one I found of significance.
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
