My origins are from Brancaleone, a small coastal village in the Calabria region, southern Italy. I go there often. A few kilometers from the coast, at the top of a hill, there is the original village called Brancaleone Superiore (Upper Brancaleone) or Brancaleone Vecchio (Old Brancaleone). This village was abandoned in the 50s of the last century after some landslides. Brancaleone Superiore is now a ghost town.
In November 2015, heavy rains caused the collapse of some abandoned buildings and changed the view of some parts of the village. A good reason to come back and photograph it again.
