Ruderi di Poggioreale (Poggioreale) by klapouch Ruderi di Poggioreale (Poggioreale) by klapouch
This photo is part of the project Frazione dopo Frazione

A photographic register of every single location at the Province of Trapani (Sicilia), no matter how small or big it is.
It means around 300 different locations.

When all the locations get photographed a photo-book will be made.

Thanks!

No. The city was hit by an earthquake in 1968 of 6,4' Richter scale. 15 towns were badly damaged and the towns of Poggioreale, Gibellina, Salaparuta and Montevago were completely destroyed. 370 people died and over 70.000 were left homeless.

A new Poggioreale was built on a safer place and eventually its citizens moved there.

I still have to photograph the "New" Poggioreale... =)

Interesting. I would have thought it would be like a criminal problem.
