A strong earthquake is rattling Rome, just two months after a powerful temblor toppled villages in central Italy, killing nearly 300 people.

There were no immediate reports of damage. But the quake shook centuries-old palazzi in Rome's historic center.

The Aug. 24 quake destroyed hilltop village of Amatrice and other nearby towns.
