Civita

Civita

Brian has been awarded a fellowship in Italy to shoot an extended portrait of Civita di Bagnoregio over two  visits in fall 2016 and spring 2017. Civita is an ancient crumbling hill town in northern Lazio that was founded by the Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago. Reachable only by a foot bridge, it sits on a pinnacle of eroding volcanic soil (tufa) in a  fairy tale-like setting.  Civita has come to be  known as “il paese che muore” or“the dying town” as earthquakes and repeated landslides threaten its fragile existence. There is now an international effort to save Civita and hope it will become designated as a World Heritage Site.
