Vecchia Bussana

 Main Index

The village known as Bussana Vecchia was destroyed by an earthquake in 1887 and subsequently abandoned. The survivors moved a few kilometres downhill and founded Bussana Nuova. In the fifties, Bussana Vecchia was a veritable ghost town whose stone ruins stood amidst the carnations that grew on the surrounding terraced land. In the 1960s a group of artists and craftsmen decided to restore the village and open workshops there, breathing new life into the old ruins. Today the town's original arts and crafts attract many thousands of visitors a year.
