Photographer's Note

Civita di Bagnoregio (VT)rnThe most classic of the photos, 39 degrees at 13.35rnCivita is located on the top of a hill between the valleys formed by the Chiaro and Torbido streams, in the so-called Valle dei Calanchi, an area located between Lake Bolsena to the west and the Tiber valley to the east, in the municipality of Bagnoregio, on the border between Lazio and Umbria.rnOriginally these places were supposed to be gentler and more accessible and were crossed by an ancient road that connected the Tiber valley to Lake Bolsena.rnCivita appears perched on a spur of rock overlooking the large basin rippled by the gullies.rnThis isolation is the result of an unstoppable erosion and landslides since the territory is made up of two distinct formations by chronology and type.rnThe oldest one is clayey, of marine origin and constitutes the base layer, particularly subject to erosion, while the upper layers are instead formed by tuffaceous and lava material.rnThe rapid erosion is due to the work of the streams, to atmospheric agents, but also to deforestation that shape the area in the typical shapes of the gullies.rnCivita no longer has roads that connect it having been swallowed up by landslides, so much so that it is called "the dying city" and can only be reached via a reinforced concrete footbridge built in 1965.
