Living with Walls

April 6th, 2009. At 3.32.29 AM a 5.9 Richter Magnitudo earthquake shock devastated L’Aquila (Abruzzo, Italy) and the surrounding area, leaving behind 309 victims, 1600 people wounded, ruins and thousands of refugees.

After 10 years, not much has changed.

The following images try to report the devastation, the slow building reconstruction, the MAP (Moduli Abitativi Provvisori) and the day by day life of the people still waiting for a Home.

A mother (Serena) tells: my little daughter has been asking me, "mom, how is living with walls?"
