The most beaufitul abandoned italian village

While Googleing about abandoned places I got to find some pictures of a southern italian village, so i decided to go a little deeper. Its life, started during Roman epoque, stopped at 7.30pm, August 21th 1962, due to an earthquake that hit Sannio and Irpinia. The village was cleared out because of the fear of possible collapses, even if it experienced only little damages. Some countrymen and countrywomen decided to keep living there, almost alone. Most of the others chose to move to a safer place. Nowadays you see only desolation, but you can taste a feeling of being in an other age, and by walking through the streets you understand that earthquake preserved those places from modernity and change.
