Flash Panel on Italian Earthquake: Terra Tremuit


Location: McKenna Hall Auditorium

Italian Building after the Earthquake

On April 6th, the Italian region of Abruzzo suffered a devastating earthquake (6.3 magnitude) that killed 279 people and left hundreds of thousands of Italians homeless. Entire villages have been destroyed. State agency offices in the region collapsed, hampering relief efforts. The Italian state is housing some of the homeless in hotels on the Adriatic coast, but most without homes are now living in tents. The cost of reconstruction will cost billions and take decades.

What is going on? How can you help? On April 15th at 4:00 pm in McKenna Auditorium, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies will convene a panel of scholars to discuss the earthquake and the distinctive contributions Notre Dame can make in relief assistance. Please join us.

Participants include:

Andrea Simoncini
Nanovic Institute visiting scholar and Italian Fulbright
Visiting Professor, Notre Dame Law School

Samir Younés
Former Director of the Rome Studies Program
Associate Professor, School of Architecture
