There is a weak outlined path starting west of the ‘906. Walk it down, take your time facing the sun towards the rocky shores. There, washed by the sea, is the place of mind of Nebida.
Here no stones are washed anymore, no windmills pump sea water up to the tank. No railway carries the mineral to Masua. But they are all still there.
Walls and fallen bricks still separate outdoor and indoor, but no other noises than wind fill the factory nowadays.
Between the red arches of bricks. Through the rusty metal wagons left. On the fallen floors.
The geometries of the old factory puzzle the natural panorama into sea blue and rock yellow pieces.
This is the stone-washing factory Lamarmora. This is Nebida, Sulcis, Sardegna.
