We are engaged in a month-long photo project at the Civita di Bagnoregio. Located in the Lazio region of Italy, the Civita di Bagnoregio was founded by Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago. The small hilltop town is much admired for its architecture spanning several hundred years. Civita di Bagnoregio owes much of its unaltered condition to its relative isolation; the town was able to withstand most intrusions of modernity as well as the destruction brought by two world wars. The population today varies from about 12 people in winter to more than 100 in summer.
This photo project is owing to the support by the Civita Institute, which "was founded on the idea that architecture and preservation, environmental stewardship, agricultural heritage and cultural exchange are all linked - and that Civita provides a unique setting to experience these connections."

The content of the gallery is a Photo-a-Day or a PAD. One photo will be posted for each day for the month we are doing this project.
