Description

NO AUDIO Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi takes US President Barack Obama on a tour of the town of l'Aquila, that was damaged by a major earthquake earlier this year. Berlusconi escorted Obama to a church in central L'Aquila, Santa Maria di Paganica, whose roof, cupola and bell tower caved in during a 6.3-magnitude earthquake in April. Reporters were not allowed to be close enough to question the men. This footage was made available without an audio so it was impossible to listen to what Berlusconi and Obama were talking about while they toured against the dour backdrop of ruins from the quake, which killed nearly 300 people. Raw video recorded from G8TV on the official G-8 website.
