Thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of these young people and professionals, many of the secrets which were hidden under hundreds of cubic metres of earth and undergrowth are being brought to light. Work which has at certain times required great physical effort and great meticulousness and caution in most of the processes.
All this effort is brought together with great sensitivity by the author of the photographs. His objective to not miss any moment of these days of non-stop work, which are already part of the locality’s history, and which relates to his interest in photography and his personal project of capturing and creating a graphic compilation of the places, spaces and elements which surround him.
