    Italy: Museums to donate for quake relief

    Aug. 28, Rome: Sunday's proceeds from public museums across Italy will be dedicated to rebuilding work after the earthquake that killed 291 people on Wednesday.

    Many churches and other medieval buildings were destroyed when the 6.2 magnitude quake struck Amatrice and other parts of the central region, reports said.

    Amatrice's mayor said he wanted to restore his town to its former glory. The country's prime minister and president both attended a funeral for 35 victims on Saturday.

    Lingering after the service at a sports hall in the town of Ascoli Piceno, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi talked to some of the mourners.
