Abandoned, L'Aquila is slowly licking its wounds following the tragic earthquake on 6 April 2009 that killed 309 people. The traumatised inhabitants have yet to move back into the historic centre, whose buildings wrapped in tarpaulins and scaffolding are reminiscent of a ghost town. Reconstruction is dragging on, but life is nonetheless gradually returning to the town. Almost all the city centre roads are again open and the first monuments have finally been restored.
