Quatrani is the for “youngsters" used in the italian city of l'Aquila. It has been ten years since the earthquake that shook l'Aquila, causing people to end up homeless, injured or dead. The children of what it is now known as The Forbidden City are now 18 years of age and have grown up without a hometown, a safe place they can call ‘home’. Nevertheless, these children have managed to find a sense of belonging in the bond they share with one another. They started calling ‘home’ the solid friendship they built by going through the same experience with remarkable strength.
