Avezzano once lay on the shores of the largest lake in peninsular Italy, Lake Fucino, which was drained in the late 19th century. After the draining of the Lake, wide fields became available for cultivation and the area underwent terrific growth. It was completely destroyed by the possibly worst recorded earthquake in the history of Italy on the early morning of January 13, 1915 with only Casa dei Palazzi and a wing of Orsini Castle spared. More than 30,000 people died.

The obverse shows the church of St. Bartolomeo in Piazza del Risorgimento, rebuilt after the earthquake. The reverse shows the smoking remains of the same church after the earthquake.
