SEPTEMBER 2010 – Detail of the ruins of the Casa Al Mare Francesco Sartori at the west coast of Sardinia. It used to be the main building of 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 fifth 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 detail shows once more how bad the situation really is. It’s an almost painful situation to be in a beautiful spot like this and be surrounded by ruins. Buildings that once have been populated with families enjoying their summer vacation are now silent witnesses of the past.
Add to this the complete absence of human noise – no cars, no trains, no shouting, no music, just the wind and the gentle sound of the waves. It does not add up and therefor, it’s quite bizarre.
