Photographer's Note

Farmhouse with dovecote tower

Today we finally got out of the red zone in Umbria and I can show you a new photo.
The plain that goes from Madonna di Lugo to Azzano is characterized by the great concentration of dovecote towers, one of the densest places in Italy. The breeding of pigeons, in addition to procuring precious food proteins, allowed a large availability of pigeon guano, a valuable fertilizer: "Merchants go to Azzano more than any other place to prove it, while that People are usually stabbing Canapines with Palombino, and here I am pleased to recall what I said in the Annotation of Chapter 1. that our Ancestors had not built so many Divers for our Campaign to eat the Pigeons, but to have the pen, and especially for the Canapine. " .
The area was, in fact, famous for the cultivation of Hemp, as Ancaiani always remembers: "in the aforementioned Places of Azzano, and Beroide, more Hemp is harvested than in the rest of the Places in our Territory"; cultivation was facilitated not only by the availability of low-cost fertilizer, but also by the rich presence of water.
