In May 2012, disaster struck the small Italian town of Finale Emilia in the form of two powerful earthquakes which destroyed the town's 13th-century clock tower. Now teams of volunteers from across Italy are coming together to help reconstruct the historic Torre dei Modenesi. (photos)
The earthquakes left the tower in over 7,000 pieces and volunteers the unbelievable task of reconstructing a giant jigsaw puzzle. Unfortunately, the rebuild is not expected to be completed for the tower's 800th anniversary in 2013.
