    Earthquake in Italy.

    General view of the houses clustered on a hill, where the quake occurred, looks rather like Monte Cassino. Various shots of men and women salvaging their possessions and carrying them through the narrow streets, the women carry them on their head. Two good close ups of Italian mothers carrying small children in their arms. MS a homeless family camping out, gathered round cooking pots. Elevated view of an open air prayer service. Squalid, narrow, cobbled streets. M/S mother and two children huddled round a fire. L/S Italian soldiers walking among the hastily erected encampment of rough shanties. C/U a woman finding a crucifix on a pile of rubble, she picks it up, kisses it and weeps. Various shots men at work demolishing an unsafe wall. Various shots family eating a meal, all dipping their spoons into the one plate.
