As a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck central Italy during summer 2016, causing almost 300 deaths, I started looking at the scars left on the landscape as well as those left on people, psychologically and emotionally.
Their daily life in pretty isolated mountain villages has suddenly been disrupted, the hotels on the coast of Marche region, between the towns of San Benedetto del Tronto and Civitanova became their new-yet temporary- homes.
The government promised to work efficiently and fast in order to deal with the emergency, feeding hopes of people to start going back to their villages by spring 2017. Then new, stronger shakes came on the 30th of October, knocking down the little that was still standing. In December Italian politics entered a new uncertain phase, which will somehow affect the issue of the earthquake management and the thousands displaced.
