- “The new constructions in the mountains are not only signs of the adaptation of agricultural spaces to their environment. […] The “giacciaie” are in my opinion dead buildings that no longer have a function.”*
Artistic Director of the
Lessinia Film Festival
In her writing and photography, Claire Laude’s book interrogates with the examples of two Mediterranean countries, Italy and Greece, our relationship to the land and the notion of permanence in the landscape. Which traces settle history and human activities in a rural landscape? What sense can be gleamed from the presence of such residue? In exploring the origin, the evolution, the function of two traditions, and in studying the build that hosts them, Claire Laude questions the need to bring attention to what exists, memory as resource.
