Le Voci Delle Macerie

In December 2022, I stumbled upon a perplexing earthquake that not only affected my entire family, but also became the catalyst for their migration to Switzerland. In my quest for understanding, I delved into archives, examined images and conducted three enlightening interviews with my mother, a village rescuer and a historian. The profound impact of this event on my family and the broader region of Southern Italy will now be unraveled through this book, which serves as my diploma project. Within its covers, you will have the opportunity to relive this traumatic occurrence through an array of compelling content, including archival documents, evocative pictures, gripping interviews, insights into the present condition of the villages and statistics.
