Pescomaggiore Village Destroyed by L’Aquila Earthquake Now Being Rebuilt Sustainably
Pescomaggiore village, which was destroyed by the earthquake that hit the mountain region of L’Aquila in central Italy on Apr. 6, 2009, is now being rebuilt by its 40-odd inhabitants with straw and wood. Called EVA (an acronym for “Do it Yourself” in Italian) eco-village features seven houses built on a section of land a short distance from the original village. The new houses have a simple wooden structure and straw padding but the roofs are clad with solar panels and there is even a system to collect rainwater.
