Two years after the terrible earthquake, Amatrice and the other villages are still lying in ruins … The inhabitants feel abandoned…

On 24 August 2018 it will be two years since Amatrice was hit by the terrible earthquake leaving behind indelible traces in the hearts of survivors and 4,000 tons of ruins in this medieval town. Only less than 15% of the rubble has been cleared.

The inhabitants feel abandoned but remain standing, endowed with strength and courage to rebuild their city and revive their land. Most of them still live in hotels tens of kilometers away from their city while waiting for the delivery of prefabricated homes.

Two years ago, Amatrice was a popular tourist destination for its landscape and local products. Its economy was flourishing. Today, Amatrice has become a tourist and economic desert!

The shepherds on the watch protect their sheep flocks …

Despite these extreme conditions, the shepherds, artisanal and organic producers of Pecorino (sheep’s milk cheese) as well as of other cheeses, preferred to stay with their sheep flocks and continue to produce the “Amatriciano – Il Pecorino dei Monti della Laga PDO” by scrupulously following the ancestral tradition.

Unfortunately, small producers can no longer find buyers and the earthquake has destroyed their storage facilities. This is why they asked us to help them, to allow them to sell their cheeses and thus be able to continue production.
