30 Alberi per tornare

Piazza de L'Emiciclo, Villa Comunale | L'Aquila
2019

"30 Alberi per tornare" was a social participative temporary installation of civic reach-out, resulted of a five day Workshop 1+1=11 made in L’Aquila, Italy. Ten years ago, on April 6th 2019, the city was struck by an earthquake which partially destroyed the city and left more than 65,000 people homeless. The city has disappeared from one moment to the next, it reconstruction has taken time, people moved, the city rose again but its social life remains in ruins. Architectural processes needs time, cities needs people plus social and cultural life also needs to be reconstructed, needs to rebirth. What is the architect’s role in this cases? 
We planted a little forest in the square of the Regional Council that wanted to represent a message for politicians. Planting trees to plant roots in the social environment of the renewed city.
