Casillo supports the victims of the Abruzzo earthquake.



The devastating earthquake that hit the city of Aquilla in Abruzzo on April 6, 2009 woke many Italians up to the tragedy that so many people from that region were experiencing. Casillo Group too, aware of the strength and energy necessary to reconstruct both the lives and the towns devastated by the earthquake, was quick to take a position, becoming the main sponsor of the production of a feature-length film ‘La Città Invisibile’ (The invisible city) directed by Giuseppe Tandoi from Corato.

Local man Tandoi expressed a sentiment in his film that many could appreciate: nothing is lost forever and everything starts again, including film making itself. The film had an active role in the reconstruction of the city donating 10% of the box office to the reconstruction of the St. Maria degli Angeli Church in Aquila.
