RESTORATION OF THE SPANISH FORT AT L'AQUILA
I did not want to hijack Ronald's thread on Sardinia and the G8, but following a post on the same topic by Adriatica and my own commennt, I thought that it may be interesting for many to see what we are talking about. On the 19th of April, the Spanish Foreign Ministry announced that Spain will take care of the external restoration of the fort. I found this link which tells us about this extraordinary building and shows the damage suffered during the earthquake.http://mceer.buffalo.edu/research/Reconnaissance/LAquila4-06-09/04Fortez...Personally, I am very happy and proud about this contribution by my own country, as the people from Abruzzo were very heavily taxed by the Spanish Viceroy, Don Pedro de Toledo, in order to build the fort. It is only fair to pay for its restoration.
