A group of Japanese architectural and construction experts visited the city of L’Aquila shortly after a 6.3-magnitude earthquake devastated the central region of Italy on April 6 to investigate the scale of the damage.

The strong earthquake hit L’Aquila, about 100 km northeast of Rome, as well as surrounding towns. The quake killed more than 290 people, injured over 1,000 and damaged or destroyed some 10,000 buildings, according to a report by the investigation group, which was in the area from April 18 to 21.
