According to what Ferraratoday has learned, two people were found under the rubble: Andrea Binelli, a 76-year-old farmer who was pulled out lifeless at about 8 a.m. on Sunday, and Gabriella Piccini, whose body was discovered at 11:30 a.m. Neighbors immediately tried to contact the elderly couple, but the phones continued to ring.
