the old farm house



While organizing my files i came across this pictures i took of the old farm house. Great part of my childhood was spent there while my great-aunts were cooking - i remember them making prosciutto and salami,hanging them over the fire stove.I loved to  to scrape the cake raw batter from the huge bowls they used and the smell of fresh bread from the brick oven.

I took this pictures one month before the city hall destroyed this place to enlarge the main road.
Never progress seemed so pointless and cruel.

  5. First of all: oh my goodness: these photographs are incredible! I love absolutely everything about them! Please share more if you have them! Do you have any of the farm house from the outside?
    Secondly, I love the memories you've described in this post and I do feel for you: it makes me so sad to see how disrespectful people can be towards old buildings - how dreadful is that?

      This house was amazing,it was used as a church in the First World War and still had many signs from that time on the first floor,i regret a lot of not having more photos of this place :/
