Photographer's Note

La Mandria (the herd) is part of the Venaria Reale (The Royal Game Park) once belonging to the Savoy House. Inside this vast territory there are also historical farms for horses and cattle, some still existing nowadays. The portrayed one is called La Peppinella, now almost uninhabited.
The building in the foreground is a sheltered well, standing in the middle of the main court and surroundend by porches, stables and rural buildings. I tried to capture the abandon atmosphere one can feel especially during the working week, when visitors are few.

La Mandria fa parte della Venaria Reale(Parco di Caccia Reale) appartenuta alla Casa Savoia. In questo vasto territorio ci sono anche allevamenti storici di cavalli e bestiame, alcuni ancora attivi al giorno d'oggi. Questo della foto si chiama La Peppinella, ora quasi disabitata. La costruzione in primo piano un pozzo coperto, situato in mezzo alla corte circondata da stalle, porticati e abitazioni rurali. Ho cercato di catturare l'atmosfera di abbandono particolarmente sentita durante la settimana, quando i visitatori sono rari.
