2014 VAJONT FOUNDATION * MAN MADE CATASTROPHE
Country: ITALY
Condition: 2014 VAJONT FOUNDATION * MAN MADE CATASTROPHE
Description: STAMP REMEMBERS A MAN-MADE DISASTER THAT KILLED THOUSANDS: A MONSTROUS FOLLY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED A tragedy that could have been avoided was remembered on 9 October 2014 when Italy issued a € 0,70 stamp to increase the awareness about ecological problems of the Alps, a major concern consistently tackled by the Vajont Foundation. The stamp depicts one of the tallest dams in the world, the Vajont Dam and Mount Toc from where on 9 October 1963 descended an apocalyptic landslide that caused a deadly wave that was catapulted on Longarone and the small towns of the Piave Valley below the dam with tragic results. 2,000 people died and the affected area, north of Venice, was virtually wiped out by a sea of water and mud. The authorities had been alerted about signs of the impending catastrophe, but these warnings were tossed aside. The geological instability of the Mount Toc terrain was also known before the dam was built in the 1950s, but this was overlooked despite fierce opposition from the local communities. In the end, the natives were told: “You have not yet understood, the times have changed ...! You will be cut off from the world if you continue to adopt this useless resistance. Understand this ... the dam will be built, with or without your consent. And you will see that sooner or later you will have all your benefits.” The colossal chunk of the mountain side (250 millions cubic meters) that caused the problem has left a huge barren space that can be clearly seen. Also included in the design – at left - is the St. Thomas Church at Pirago that miraculously survived the 800 feet tsunami. Originally built in the 1500s the church suffered substantial damage but the bell tower and important structures survived. [G.M. copyright]
