More of L’Aquila
At the risk of boring you all with even more pictures of L’Aquila, here are a few more pictures I took with my phone while out and about over the past week.
First, here’s the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) where our workshop is being held:
The following sites can all be found within a few minutes’ walk of the GSSI (which is itself just a few minutes from my hotel). In particular there is the historically important Romanesque church of Santa Maria di Collemaggio which dates back to the 13th Century. The façade looks in good nick, although there is evidence of recent repair. However, the back of the church collapsed completely during the 2009 Earthquake and is currently being rebuilt. There is also cracking and significant bowing of the wall on the left hand side, hence the supporting structures.
