Earthquake 2016: two years later

2 years earthquake memorial
Two years ago a strong earthquake struck central Italy. On the night of August 24, our psychologists were present in Amatrice for the memorial ceremony for the victims.
Under the awning set up in the square, where the hotel-school stood, we proceeded with the reading of some stories related to the earthquake. 
At the end, a torchlight procession headed towards the church of Sant'Agostino, in front of which the names of all the Amatriciane victims of the earthquake were read. At 3.36 h the tolling of the bells, one for each deceased. Silence.
Afterwards, the torchlight procession towards the Don Minozzi park ended with a few minutes of meditation in front of the memorial monument. After a few sentences from the bishop, the procession silently dispersed.
In Accumoli, the commemoration took place at 17:00 pm the following afternoon. 
About 200 people gathered in the main square, including citizens, the Alpine group and representatives of the various local and national institutions. The function, also carried out in this case by the bishop, was interspersed with the songs of the parish choir. The community quietly gathered for the whole ceremony until its conclusion.

We express our heartfelt closeness to the entire population and to all the people known in these two years of intervention in the area. The psychologists of Psy + Onlus they are still active on the spot and will continue to be present to offer psychological support to the population.
