The old farmhouse

It seems to have been forgotten, when the city drew nearer and the traffic demanded more space. This old farmhouse, left next to a huge roundabout, a petrol station and a scruffy industrial area.

Via Campania. I think the area is called Coteto, but if anyone knows differently, please tell.

The house is still very beautiful, despite (or maybe because of?) its heavy decay.

The building is a mix of recently fitted aluminium windows and derilict stable doors.

“Go slowly for safety reasons and to avoid raising dust. Thank you!”
Aimed at passing cars, I presume.

Some parts of the building are clearly abandoned.

While others have been recently attended to.

The back of the house. I wonder how many generations have lived here, how many children have played and worked in this courtyard.

I love when old walls reveal different and earlier door openings. A feast for ones imagination!

I hope someone will care for this house for many years to come. And give it just enough tlc, not to ruin all of its dilapidated charm!
