Gibellina

Post by rmccray » 22 Jan 2011, 21:22

Hi,

I was looking for a map of Gibellina prior to the 1968 earthquake. I've searched everywhere, but can only find maps of Gibellina Nuova.

Thanks!

Hi :-)

Interesting photos of "A ghost village near Gibellina" (but not pre-1950) showing results of the quake...

Great Photo"s, are you sure they were taken in Gibellina and not the ruins of Poggioreale?
