“The Internet… gave us great independence and the force to do something that was missing on TV and in which the Italian media were not, and still are not, investing time—telling people’s stories.”

Stefano Strocchi, Director, in Al Jazeera English

On April 6, 2009, an earthquake struck the Italian region of Abruzzo, displacing more than 60,000 people. Left without homes, locals created temporary camps. From Zero – Italy webcast daily episodes from the Centicolella refugee camp. The project investigates the ongoing human cost of the earthquake, turning cameras on the people living through disaster long after international news crews have returned home.

Active for months, From Zero – Italy is currently offline, demonstrating the difficulties in archiving interactive projects in the ever-changing world of the web. Some of the most popular web episodes have been broadcast on Al Jazeera English and are available as a DVD.
