This chapter revisits reconstruction after the disastrous earthquake in 1915 that devastated many small and medium towns in Marsica, Italy. The historical, political and geographical context of the Marsica reconstruction, the premises and diverseways in which itwas tackled, and the outcome of the reclamation, extension or requalification of the urban structure and building typology of its “resurrected” town centres, constitute a reference point in the history of earthquakes and reconstruction policies in Italy. They also portray the background of present-day situations and problems. Such questions concern to the fullest extent the resistance and resilience of the urban centre and its social and historic collective heritage, particularly where the consistency and identity of buildings are also the outcome of reconstruction processes after repeated destructive seismic events, as in the case of Marsica, many other areas of Italy and other countries.

Abstract

This chapter revisits reconstruction after the disastrous earthquake in 1915 that devastated many small and medium towns in Marsica, Italy. The historical, political and geographical context of the Marsica reconstruction, the premises and diverseways in which itwas tackled, and the outcome of the reclamation, extension or requalification of the urban structure and building typology of its “resurrected” town centres, constitute a reference point in the history of earthquakes and reconstruction policies in Italy. They also portray the background of present-day situations and problems. Such questions concern to the fullest extent the resistance and resilience of the urban centre and its social and historic collective heritage, particularly where the consistency and identity of buildings are also the outcome of reconstruction processes after repeated destructive seismic events, as in the case of Marsica, many other areas of Italy and other countries.
