Photographer's Note

Built in the 1600's, here is the beautiful, dear chiesa della Madonna del Lago (Church of the Madonna of the Lake) in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, before the recent earthquake.

This photo is from a warm September afternoon last year. We heard from friends at La Locanda sul Lago this week that "A santo Stafano di Sessanio caduta la torre, la chiesa della madonna del lago ed altre case." ... At Santo Stefano di Sessanio the tower has fallen, and the Church of the Madonna of the Lake was also broken."

A picture of the tower last autumn is here.

Some photos of Abruzzo earthquake damage including this church and tower are on Abruzzo Cultura.

Those specifically of Santo Stefano di Sessanio are on this page.


Such sad losses. Much to rebuild. I hope they start a fund for donations.
