Amazing grace: Hauntingly beautiful photographs offer glimpse inside crumbling Italian church left derelict for 30 years after earthquake that wiped out entire village | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Crumbling into the ground, this is the hauntingly beautiful relic of a church left abandoned for 30 years after miraculously surviving one of the world's most devastating natural disasters.

It was hit by the tragic Irpinia earthquake of 1980, which killed 3,000, severely injured a further 10,000, and left 300,000 homeless in the tiny village of Conza, southern Italy.

Survivors fled to the countryside five miles away, rebuilt the town there, and never returned.

Cinecittá unlocks the magic of cinema

Cinecittá unlocks the magic of cinema | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
