This diary, written by Giorgio Andreotta Calò, between 24 August and 2 October 2019, narrates a forty-day journey on foot from Venice to L’Aquila. The route ideally followed the Gloria Fault – the subterranean fracture where the European and African tectonic plates meet – which runs through much of Italy.

The journey on foot traced the transmission path in reverse of the seismic waves that hit central Italy in 2016, in the attempt to create a ritual and apotropaic action reflecting on the state of crisis triggered by the earthquake.
