It opens on September 1st at 7.00 pm The 'janna a lianti, the photographic exhibition in which Nanni Angeli investigates and shows that the stazzo, a traditional socio-economic cell of the rural community of Gallura, it still constitutes an essential element of originality and interest in the natural and human landscape of Gallura.

The door to the east. People, structures and objects of the stables of contemporary Gallura is a photographic project that was born with the aim of investigating and showing that the structure of the stazzo, intended as home and land surrounding, a socio-economic cell of the Gallura rural society until the first half of the 1960s, still constitutes an element of originality and interest, despite having lost, in many cases, its original function. A selection of color and black and white images summarizes the environmental, landscape, structural and human situation of the observed reality. During the research, over two hundred stazzi distributed throughout the Gallura area were visited during the photo shoot. The subsequent selection phase shows a sample of about sixty stazzi, present on a large area, which includes marine and hilly regions, areas near inhabited or isolated centers, in an attempt to reconstruct a panorama as exhaustive as possible of the multiple differences of the natural and landscape contexts in which they are located; of the minimal but existing differences in the architectural structures and those concerning the different uses and current uses of these territories and structures.
