The article presents a community psychology intervention in the aftermath of the earth-quake that hit Central Italy between August 2016 and January 2017. In particular, this inter-vention is aimed to stimulate the community resilience of a small municipality in Sibillini’s National Park, Fiastra, whose population was divided into two parts: one remained in the village; the other was moved to the coasts after the earthquake of October 26, 2016. After a short introduction, the second paragraph of the article discusses the concept of community resilience highlighting the positive contribution that it can make to the interventions for community recovery as well as the possible risks associated with a static interpretation. The third paragraph analyzes the principles of the intervention and the main lines of activity. Fi-nally, the article ends with some considerations on the approach used, clarifying the role of external operators and the contribution they can provide to the activation of community re-silience resources.
