Rebuild L'Aquila

at 3.32 of 6th April 2009 a terrible earthquake struck the city of L'Aquila in Italy. 309 people died, 1600 were injured.

I visited in L'Aquila during the past September. I will never forget the faces of people trying to rebuild a new life despite that night they lost important pieces of their life.

At three years from the unhappy event, many people cannot rebuild their own homes because of government and "great risks commission" adminstrators, that decided to focus on the development of new towns insted to quickly reopen the city centers. Actually, "protezione civile" chiefs, "great risk commission" and many "business man" are under indictment for corruption and many other crimes.

One of the most beautiful city of Italy is still partially closed to the people and policed by army.

For L'Aquila, for that people, for the recostruction of one brilliant future. That's my small, insignificant, gift of hope.
