e Oggi '92
by Father Baldassare Graffagnino of Salaparuta
The book is an extensive history of Salaparuta, a small village in western Sicily. The town, founded in medieval times, was completely destroyed by earthquake in January of 1968. Reduced to rubble by the earthquake, Salapruta has since been rebuilt a few miles away.
The images of Salaparuta shown on these pages have been copied from the pages
of Salaparuta Ieri e Oggi '92. Additional photographs have
been provided by P. Ned Graffagnino, taken while visiting Salaparuta in 1953
with his parents.
