The men and women farmers, their homes, fields, and hard work are the true protagonists of this exhibit that tells their story in a display of farm tools alongside paintings and photographs in an exhibit in Barga from July 3 to September 5 2010.
The focus of the show is on the Valle del Serchio, an area to the north of Lucca that extends into the Garfagnana; an area that is rich with ancient woods, castles, hamlets, picturesque bridges, in which the memory of the recent rural past is still very much alive.
It’s a small show but one with an interesting variety of images as you can see in the photo gallery below.
