Craco, ghost town in Basilicata sent on January 04, 2016 (21:23) by Giovabubi. 6 comments, 1057 views.

, 1/400 f/8.0, ISO 100, hand held. Craco, Italy.

Craco è un comune della provincia di Matera in Basilicata. A causa di una frana di vaste proporzioni, nel 1963 Craco iniziò ad essere evacuata e parte degli abitanti si trasferì a valle, in località "Craco Peschiera". Allora il centro contava quasi 2000 abitanti. La frana che ha obbligato la popolazione ad abbandonare le proprie case sembra essere stata provocata da lavori di infrastrutturazione, fogne e reti idriche, a servizio dell'abitato. Nel 1972 un'alluvione peggiorò ulteriormente la situazione, impedendo un'eventuale ripopolazione del centro storico e dopo il terremoto del 1980 Craco vecchia venne completamente abbandonata. Ad onta di questo esodo forzato, Craco è rimasta intatta, trasformandosi in un paese fantasma. Nel 2010, il borgo è entrato nella lista dei monumenti da salvaguardare redatta dalla World Monuments Fund Il comune, nella realizzazione di un piano di recupero del borgo, ha istituito, dalla primavera del 2011, un percorso di visita guidata, lungo un itinerario messo in sicurezza, che permette di percorrere il corso principale del paese, fino a giungere a quello che resta della vecchia piazza principale, sprofondata in seguito alla frana. Nel dicembre 2012, è stato inaugurato un nuovo itinerario, che permette di addentrarsi nel nucleo della città fantasma. Nel 2013, il centro storico ha registrato un'affluenza di circa 5.000 visitatori. (fonte Wikipedia)

Too bad to see him so wrecked and abandoned, because seeing your beautiful shots, I think the first was to be veverci although not with all the amenities (many useless because defects) than now, had to be a nice live, where people could be seen between the door and leads from window to window, cominicare knew, knew help you; one can see in your beautiful, loads of special and interesting documents. But noting in this beautiful shot, donkey, horse grass and flowers, you know that around the ruins left by man, nature does not abandon, but he knows to rebuild and Where-life destroyed but not as well as solar and described in your intertitle, it is almost always the man who triggers and lights the fuse. You were really good, nice work, historical documents, great shots! Greetings alberto

A big thank you for your words bellisisme Alberto.
Yes it had to be a nice little town Lucan, from the quiet life. Now the man one gets fine benefits (economic). only tour with guide 10 € / person for a period of 1 hour. And soon also evening shows thanks to the new lighting system. And do not forget that the site was already the scene of several films: one among many, it seems to me, The passion with Mel Gibson, and then Basilicata coast to coast with Rocco Papaleo.
