Filignano Part 1

August 29th, 2010 § 0 comments

I was recently lucky enough to be asked to visit Filignano in Italy to do some research. Its a tiny wee village in the region of Molise, about 2 hours from Rome. It lies on the edges of the Abruzzo national park, and was also right on the Gustav Line during WW2. These first images were taking during a religious festival (I forget which one, but the church goers carried a statue of the Virgin Mary through the village for a bit). The village itself was home to a frightening number of Scottish people, as a large proportion of Glasgow’s Italian families emigrated from this area.
