Corridors of power

The House of Gonzaga ruled Mantua and close-by town from 1300 to 1700 AC. Renaissance found in Gonzagas strong supporters: the wealthy family sponsored  architects and painters to decorate the region of Mantua with palaces, galleries and theaters among the most beautiful in Italy.

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.

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.

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.
