A cyclone of rain and wind hit Italy and, especially, Naples and Campania. An event of this magnitude had never been seen before.
Storm surges have caused massive damage and the wind at over 140 km per hour has increased the effect of the storm.
The headquarters of the Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Museum of Peace - MAMT suffered serious damage.
Especially the archives of newspapers and books of various countries, accounting and projects carried out for almost thirty years have been almost completely submerged by water.
"It will be a huge job to try to recover the recoverable," said President Capasso after having ascertained the extent of the damage on his return from Tunisia.
Thanks to the work of rock climbers and construction workers it was possible to repair the most urgent damages.
