In the Aftermath

Sibillini mountains, Earthquake, ongoing

A year has passed since the severe earthquake that hit central Italy.
Broken mountains, lands almost one meter crumbled, collapsed buildings,
sheds and stalls with broken roofs, rivers that have changed course, roads
that have disappeared and a land that continues to shake.

The movement of the earth has also caused a movement of those who lived there.
The mountain community of the Sibillini Mountains is composed of many villages scattered over a very large territory.

Some are gone, someone tries to resist. The reconstruction will last 10-15 years
and the oldest will no longer see their homes. But citizens are trying hard to regain possession of their lives and their land.

This series is part of the collective documentary project  Lo stato delle cose.
