Chasing the Devil

Old woods baked by the Alpine sun, stoned pillars against underground creatures… and horrifying masks for chasing the Devil!

Laveria Lamarmora: a place of mind

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.

_dsc7635 _dsc7665

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.

_dsc7659 _dsc7656

Walls and fallen bricks still separate outdoor and indoor, but no other noises than wind fill the factory nowadays.

_dsc7662 _dsc7648

Between the red arches of bricks. Through the rusty metal wagons left. On the fallen floors.

_dsc7664 _dsc7652

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.

 

 

Industrial soul of Sulcis: rear windows

This is the fifth and last part of Monteponi rebirth, a photo reportage on the mining site of Monteponi (Sardegna, Italy). Here you find the second and third and fourth parts. What is next, after that through this photo reportage several rear windows were open to observe the courtyard of Monteponi? A book? A photo exhibition? Not enough to preserve this archeological industrial site. Hopefully, a first step to speed up the intervention of the city hall of Iglesias, region Sardegna and regional founds from the European Union (FESR) to preserve this area before it is too late. If you liked the reportage, there is a book online with more picture waiting to be ordered… at support of the photographer too.

Industrial soul of Sulcis: giants

This is the fourth part of Monteponi rebirth, a photo reportage on the mining site of Monteponi (Sardegna, Italy). Here you find the second and third parts. The industrial area of Monteponi is wide but also tall. Layers of tunnels and rooms below ground make the exploration of the site dangerous. Often buildings consist of several floors, mostly not accessible. Buildings here are like giants with feet of clay.

Industrial soul of Sulcis: ghost town

This is the third part of Monteponi rebirth, a photo reportage on the mining site of Monteponi (Sardegna, Italy). Here you find the second part. Monteponi was an industrial complex. Still, turrets and house-like buildings make Monteponi looking like a town. A very silent one, where the only noises are wind and slammed windows.

_dsc7581-recovered _dsc7577-recovered

Lead foundry, lower level (1892). The foundry was used to treat mixed minerals from Monteponi and other sites to obtain in loco the final product. Electrolysis cells’ block (1925): here AC was converted to DC for running the electrolysis pools.

Lead mill (1925). Here lead sheets for the electrolysis plant were forged and laminated.
