This was the biggest tragedy that either of these villages had ever seen, creating more devastation than any previous natural disaster or World War II.
People were killed, businesses lost, generations of investment and work were lost in a matter of minutes.
As a way of remembering those who helped Rebuild Monterosso from afar, Rebuild Monterosso along with local ceramicists from Fabbrica D'arte Carved out donators encouraging messages to make 'a wall of hope for Monterosso'.
|Ceramicists sculpted 'stones' . . .|
|. . . that were then carved with thoughtful messages.|
|Ready for the kiln.|
Wall can be found by talking the walkway that goes above the tunnel connecting the historical center to the new part of town.
