Forte e gentile…

Twelve years on from the Abruzzo earthquake and the past is still as much a part of the present. Thinking of all those lost, driven away, who stayed, the many still unable to return to their homes and all whose lives it changed. With love con affetto agli Abruzzese. Forte e gentile. From the other side of the world, you are still thought of. 💛

* According to Primo Levi (1853–1917), ‘forte e gentile’ – strong and kind, best described the beauty of Abruzzo and the character of its people. It has since become the motto of the region and its inhabitants.
