Thousands of Italian families faced another day under canvas in L'Aquila after the earthquake which levelled their homes in the central Abruzzo region on Monday.
Two days after the disaster, thousands of people remained in the makeshift shelters.
Some had preferred to pass the chilly night sleeping in their cars.
Officials estimate that 50,000 people were left homeless by the earthquake though some have now moved in with relatives and friends.
Amid the rubble poignant reminders appeared of the people whose homes and lives were shattered by the quake.
Rescue workers with sniffer dogs continued the search for survivors.
Some 150 people have been rescued so far but hopes are fading for those still trapped.
Aftershocks caused another death and made the rescue work harder but firefighters were determined to save everyone - and everything - they could find.
L'Aquila, a 13th-Century city of 70,000, will be uninhabitable for some time. Its architectural riches were hit hard.
