MITaly, the Italian student association at MIT, has begun raising money to support reconstruction at the University of L'Aquila, which was severely damaged during the earthquake that hit Italy's Abruzzo region in April.

Money raised will go toward laboratory equipment and physical reconstruction of buildings at the university and its engineering school. For more information on the fundraising initiative, please visit http://web.mit.edu/mitaly/www/mensetmanusfund2009.html.
