The recent magnitude six earthquake east of Rome, in addition to killing 179, damaged a passel of old buildings: the the Romanesque church of Maria di Collemaggio in L’Aquila was destroyed, along with the Renaissance bell tower of the church of San Bernardino di Siena and  Forte Spagnolo, home to the National Museum of Abruzzo. It being Italy, promises for help in rebuilding flow from all sides.
