According to Salvo Provenzano, an engineer who is the head of the office for the reconstruction of the Abruzzo capital, homes have been delivered to 75% of eligible citizens.

L'Aquila hosted a torchlight procession in memory of the 309 victims of the earthquake that devastated the city on 6 April 2009, causing also building collapses and thousands of displaced residents.
