I am not sure where this topic belongs, but maybe someone will be able to help.

I am looking for any factual information regarding the earthquake in Messina Sicily 1908.  Internet informaton in english is very limited. I have gone so far as to e mail the university of Messina but have had no reply. If there is a book that I can buy, or a direction to take this study I sure would appreciate the advice.

Also, a humble suggeston to the moderators; this forum needs a "general discussion area to encourage just that."

Grazie

Liz

Hi Liz,

There is a PBS documentary about the 1908 earthquake that you can order, as well as a teachers guide. The link is
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/rescue/peopleevents/pandeAMEX99.html 

Other than that, if you wikipedia the messina earthquake of 1908, there is a google book search that leads you to some more physical information about the quake- the site is: 
http://books.google.com/books?id=Au3yEzkzgr0C&pg=PA413&lpg=PA413&dq=cause+of+the+messina+earthquake&source=web&ots=Nq-B5LCcNx&sig=GyycSQzcyW7g68a6VhkM3ojhfdk#PPA413,M1 

Hope that can help...

Liz:

try to locate the book Sicily in Shadow and in Sun, by Maud Howe, Boston: Little, Brown, and Company (publisher), 1910. A very interesting book, replete with contemporary photographs of temporary housing built by the U.S. Navy.

Thanks Molly,

I own the book by Maude Howe, you are right it is very interesting.  I have found that some of the information in the book contradicts what is on various websites. That is what began my search.  I have seen the wikipedia article, but didn't think about the links at the bottom...thanks. AND PBS?? humm good thought.
