The Belice earthquake of 1968

belice2Presenting a six part video series on the earthquake in the Belice region, which includes Santa Margherita, between 14-15 January 1968. This was a catastrophic event that devastated the entire area, including the collapse of the Palazzo Filangeri-Cuto and adjoining Mother Church.

The main area of damage was centred around the valley of the Belice, with worst affected towns being Santa Ninfa, Partanna, Montevago, Santa Margherita di Belice, Gibellina, Salaparuta, Poggioreale, Vita, Salemi, and Camporeale also suffered significant damage.

The earthquakes on 14 January did little damage, but many of the inhabitants spent the following night sleeping outside, during which the most damaging of the shocks occurred, which probably greatly reduced the number of casualties. The official death toll was 231 with a further 623 injured. Other estimates give more than 400 dead with over 1,000 injured. An estimated 100,000 people were made homeless by the earthquakes.

I’ve also included a few videos below the six part series from Italian newscasts at the time of the quakes, as well as some videos showing pre-quake Belice and some pictorial video-essays of post-quake Belice.

These videos are narrated and presented entirely in Italian.
