Abstract

The collective trauma resulting from a natural disaster represents a crisis of meaning. Several studies support the transgenerational transmission of traumatic experiences as well as protective models of resilience. On the tenth anniversary of the seismic event that hit the city of L'Aquila in 2009, a wide variety of cultural and scientific events could be analyzed in the context of mnemotechnologies. Within this framework, technological skills that release trauma-related emotions and ideas from the collective memories (i.e. mnemotechnologies) could substantially contribute to the active forgetting process required for the construction of a new cultural identity.
