Petition on the initiative of the Consorzio Turistico di Volterra

It’s been twenty years since we started to spread the name of Volterra around the world, and we are pleased our city is so esteemed and loved.
Volterra and its medieval walls don’t belong to its inhabitants only, but they are a world heritage site that must be returned both to us, as citizens, and to the world.
One of the most charming places of the town with breathtaking sunsets over the Cecina Valley and the Tyrrhenian sea, enlivened by workshops, artists and town dwellers.
Our special support goes to the people who lived in the cleared out buildings to whom we are sure the city will be able to give its solidarity and aid.
This morning one of them left a message of hope that, we think, must be shared by all of us with optimism.
This disaster must not only be considered a wound on the past, but it must be turned into a Window over the Future“.

Petition on the initiative of the daily newspaper il Tirreno

Il Tirreno sottoscrive e rilancia l’appello di letterati e intelellettuali che si sono rivolti al governo chiedendo di intervenire per salvare le mura medievali di Volterra, duramente colpite e ferite dal maltempo. La frana che ha causato il cedimento di 30 metri di cinta muraria, una terrazza su uno dei panorami più belli del mondo, fa riflettere sulla fragilità della bellezza del patrimonio storico, artistico e urbano della Toscana. In quel pezzo di mura medievali e stradine fino a ieri c’erano abitazioni e botteghe di artisti e alabastrai, e lì molte volte poeti e scrittori sono andati a leggere in pubblico o si sono incontrati al premio Ultima frontiera, perché la poesia è di casa a Volterra. Il governo deve fare qualcosa per salvare tutto questo, per non permettere che una frana si porti via secoli di storia.
