L'Aquila - Abruzzo - Italy

L'Aquila means The Eagle.
Like an eagle, the city, 70.000 pop., is between highest tops of Appennine mountains, near the highest in absolute, Mont Gran Sasso, 2912 m.

Ci andai, nell'immediatezza del terremoto, e non c'era una finestra che non fosse rotta.

Si sta muovendo anche la complicata macchina della ricostruzione e dell'intervento di protezione.

Le immagini che seguono sono eloquenti.

[img]L'Aquila, un 'ragno' nella cupola della Chiesa delle Anime Sante
Si č conclusa la complessa operazione di messa in sicurezza della cupola della Chiesa di Santa Maria del Suffragio, meglio conosciuta come Chiesa delle Anime Sante. Il 5 giugno i Vigili del fuoco hanno inserito nella cupola lesionata dal sisma il "ragno", ossia una struttura metallica a otto bracci estensibili. Dopo averlo calato con una gru, il ragno č stato fissato al livello delle finestre, sia internamente che esternamente. Ecco le immagini dell'operazione di messa in sicurezza[/img]
