Photographer's Note

hello,
that ruins are of an abandoned tonnara. tonnara is a structure by the sea used for catching and elaborating tuna fishes. fisherman (ciurma) under the instructions of their boss (rais) and using long nets where trapping the tunas and then it was time for the matanza, so the killing of the fish with the use of lances and big knifes, they told me that the color of the see was changing into red from the blood quantity. there are archaeological statements that this kind of fishing exists from 4-5sec.AC. As i saw in a small search i did, the last tonnara in italy closed in the 1960's.
