Reconstruction, Recovery and Resilience of Historic Cities and Societies

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of the L’Aquila earthquake which devastated the city and its historic centre, affecting over 100,000 people who lived in the city and its surrounding areas. While rebuilding work is ongoing, economic and social recovery is struggling. The conference aims to bring together global knowledge and offer new perspectives and strategies on linking urban processes, reconstruction approaches and heritage issues and to push the traditional theoretical and practical boundaries in order to improve the future of post-crisis reconstruction in historic cities. The city and its people stand to benefit from the global, dispersed, knowledge on the subject matter that will be gathered in the city during the conference.


Organisers: University of L’Aquila, Silk Cities, University College London


Sponsors: City Partnership Programme,  Development Planning Unit, UCL, Instituto di Storia della Resistenza
