On 6th April 2009 an earthquake of 5.8 Richter scale shaked Italy. The epicenter is in Abruzzo region, the shakes destroyed the center of L’Aquila city and razed completely some neighboring villages. Causing 295 deaths, 55 thousand displaced persons, over 33 thousand are housed in tent camps. In Bagno, a small town near L’Aquila, there is a tent camp of about 300 persons, many of them are elderly ones. These small towns have not been in the spotlight of the media. Most of elderly people consider themselves lucky to be still alive. They have tired faces, an absent look and glossy eyes for a crying or a fever, and they have also a massive fear, the one to be forgotten.
