A Sad Day for Cultural Heritage

On Sunday, May 20th, the Italian region Emilia Romana was shaken by an earthquake that reached 5.9 on the Richter scale. Seven people lost their lives because of collapsing buildings. The shocks also caused the destruction of a number of irreplaceable cultural heritage buildings and artefacts. This sad event should remind us of the transience of all man made things, and the need for their preservation and documentation in order to keep our rich heritage for upcoming generations.
