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.
