This is a case study of one community's recovery after an 1814 landslide obliterated two hamlets in the Italian Dolomites, leaving only 44 escaping survivors. The study has two aims: to introduce the concept of taskscape to the recovery literature and to use survival narratives to identify
community strengths. The concept of taskscape considers the social activities of people living within a specific, local landscape. Taskscapes may provide a more dynamic, locally developed understanding of social cohesion than do current notions such as social capital. Comparing pre-disaster
taskscapes to post-disaster recovery across different cases may reveal new mechanisms for community resiliency.
