(Corrects spelling of Maccaferri in first paragraph.)

June 6 (Bloomberg) -- The two earthquakes that hit northern Italy last month caused more than 4 billion euros in economic damage, Gaetano Maccaferri, president of employer lobby Confindustria for the Emilia Romagna region, said at a hearing before the Senate Industry Committee today.

About 600 industrial companies employing more than 12,000 workers were “directly damaged” by the quakes, with a loss estimated at about 2 billion euros, Maccaferri said. The area affected by the quake makes up about 1 percent of Italy’s gross domestic product.
