These days mark a year from the terrible earthquake that involved the Amatrice area and which affected Central Italy. On this occasion we have collected the stories directly from the protagonists of the project RImPRESA.
Despite many months have passed by; the pain for the loss of nearly 300 victims and for their families is still strong. The memory is still alive and the signs of collapse, isolation, fear of possible new shocks and consequent damage are still present and clearly visible in the territory. But we want to talk about those days thinking about the future.
This is a future that will be rebuilt, thanks to those who survived, and did not loose the courage, and wanted to keep hoping. It will be a future to which we will look with humility and perseverance.
We want to tell the stories of Stefania, Pietro, Maria Josè, and Federica’s commitment and the support of the Cia – Confederazione italiana agricoltori – and that of the Civil Protection.
They are all parts of a story built together, all actors and protagonists of RImPRESA, the project that supporting local companies, has allowed them to continue or resume production.
Thanks to all the friends (as well as partner associations: Associazione Famiglie Nuove, AIPEC, Movimento dei Focolari, B & F Foundation, Abbraccio Planetario) who contributed with donations, with their work and their ideas to the success of the project. On this anniversary, we want to hear the stories of the protagonists, their new faith, and their relationship with their territory they want to preserve.
