A massive earthquake destroyed the Sicilian mountain village Gibellina 39 years ago. Hundreds of people died. The survivors eked out a life in meagre barracks for 15 years. Many left the country. The city was rebuilt 18 kilometers away as a lifeless bedroom community with modern, shoddy architecture and an over-abundance of modern art: an oversized, open-air museum at the border of a failed vision with increasing social and economic problems.
