Blast In’ L’Aquila_video.

On the night of April 6, 2009 at 3:32 a.m.the city of L’Aquila was hit by a 5.9-magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale that leveled the city center, including various neighborhoods and surrounding towns, and caused 309 casualties. Seven years later, the city is still a construction site and its historic center is still largely uninhabited. The recent construction of a concrete skatepark has given new hope to the local skaters as well as a reference point to many young people. The Blast! Skateboarding team spent seven days skating in L’Aquila.

Enjoy the Blast In’L’Aquila video filmed and edited by Nicolò Novali and featuring Icaro Nardi, Ivan Inglese, Filippo Cilia and Indro Martinenghi.
