TOURISTS taking selfies and snaps of wrecked houses have been slammed by survivors of Italy’s earthquake.
Hundreds of gawpers have flocked to towns and villages hit by last week’s disaster, which left at least 291 dead.
They have been clogging roads and getting in the way of rescue teams.
Pescara del Tronto resident Simone Rendina, 26, told The Sun: “It’s disgusting what some people will do.”
A cop said: “They take pictures of themselves standing in front of a wrecked house smiling and then put them on Facebook. It’s distasteful.”
Forty nine people were killed in Pescara del Tronto during the earthquake including Giulia Rinaldo, eight, who died after she used her body to protect her four year old sister Giorgia from falling masonry.
Student Simone Rendina, 26, was allowed back into the hamlet to retrieve belongings only after he showed his ID to police and firefighters.
Simone told The Sun: "It’s disgusting what some people will do. I’ve heard accents of people clearly from Rome and elsewhere just strolling about and they are taking pictures.
“I snapped in the end and told one group where to go.
