The exceptionality and the drama of this situation have also made this operation very involving and emotional. In fact, the whole Edil Steel-team, composed of workers, engineers, designers, project managers, secretaries, responsibles, administrators, etc., has worked day and night to reach this extraordinary final success. Actually, all persons were strongly sensitized by the pain which the earthquake caused to the entire population of Aquila the 06 April 2009.

Every 10 days, a metal structure for a 3-storey building with over 30 apartments was completed. For this realization were used more than 250 tons of steel.

The extraordinary and excellent results obtained, thanks also to the mass media, are by now well known to everybody.
