Photographer's Note

On the commune of CONCA (CORSE-of-South), the peninsula of Fautea, property of the Conservatoire of the littoral and works lake, conceals a tower genoese which was built within the framework of the constructions decided by the office San Giorgio since 1512.
This tower was born in 1592; work of 12 master masons and under the guard of 50 soldiers.
Its first role was the monitoring of the sea in the event of pirate approaches of ships.
The turns also exerted a commercial control on behalf of the Republic of Genoa. The guards (torregiani) supervised the cargoes, anchorages and licences of export.

Fautea had already been the subject of one of my first photographs on TE. You can look at it here and to see the way which I traversed since ;-)).
I hope you will like this new version more.
