SEPTEMBER 2010 – Close-up of the ruins of the Casa Al Mare Francesco Sartori at the west coast of Sardinia. It belongs to the Colonia Marina di Funtanazza, a holiday retreat for the families of the workers of the nearby mines of Montevecchio and Ingurtosu. © Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
This is the fourth 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.
This photo provides a closer look at the destruction of the main building, the Casa Al Mare Francesco Sartori. While the core seems to be intact, everything would have to be renovated entirely to lift it to modern standards. That’s a costly business, and that’s why it has not happened since it was shut down in 1983.
It’s interesting to see what 27 years (1983-2010) can do to a building that sits directly at the coast but does not see any maintenance.
