The last Tents

After the April 6th 2009 earthquake in Abruzzo, the Italian Government offered some temporary shelters for the displaced people. The “Piazza d’Armi” tents camp in L’Aquila (Abruzzo capital) has been for months the main symbol of the displaced people. Now the Government gave to the displaced people a new and better solution, different from tents (mainly in hotels around the region). In the Piazza d’Armi tents now live some 20 people that refused the Government solution. The main reason is that the proposed new accommodation was far from the town of l’Aquila, town that represents the only possibility and hope to go back to a normal life…
