Tears of stone-The ghost town of Poggioreale (Trapani-2013)

On the night of 15th January 1968, a terrible earthquake raked through the Valle del Belice in southwest Sicily. Around 900 people died and ten towns and villages were significantly damaged. Two, Gibellina and Poggioreale, were left in ruins. Consequently, the old town of Poggioreale was abandoned and a new one established a few kilometres away. The landmarks of Poggioreale can still be seen now and I have tried to show what you can see in this "ghost town".
