SEPTEMBER 2010 – The ruins of the Casa Al Mare Francesco Sartori at the west coast of Sardinia, seen from the distance. This used to be the main building of the Colonia Marina di Funtanazza, a holiday retreat erected in the 1950s for the families of the nearby mine-workers of Montevecchio and Ingurtosu. © Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
This is the second image of a mini series covering the Colonia Marina di Funtanazza at the west coast of Sardinia in Italy. The first image can be found here.
While the location of the Colonia is still beautiful, first doubts about the retreat came up when we approached the retreat from the east. The Casa Al Mare Francesco Sartori will be the first building you will see, a huge building in terracotta colors that contrast well with the blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
To the casual observer it looks like a run-down (hotel) building, maybe undergoing some renovation works. But you don’t really notice the state of the building right away.
