L’Aquila one year on

L'Aquila: città invisibile (by l3m4ns on Flickr)

This is the first anniversary of the earthquake in central Italy that killed 300 and left 60,000 people homeless (reported by the BBC).

This was Europe’s biggest natural disaster in over 60 years.

The discussion has moved on: how to rebuild ancient buildings to make them earthquake proof, or whether to leave L’Aquila as a deserted monument similar to Roman Pompeii.

What should be the priority: homes or culture? And which has the greater call on limited public money?
