Messina: a city without memory?

On 28 December 1908 the most lethal seismic event in the history of the western world struck the cities either side of the Straits that separate Sicily from the Italian mainland. This documentary, made in 2004, investigates the historical memory of the catastrophe in the Sicilian city of Messina.

By John Dickie and Dan Sayer. Made as part of a research project at University College London funded by the AHRB.
John’s book Una catastrofe patriottica. 1908: il terremoto di Messina, came from the same research. (Available only in Italian.)
