His name is Mario, he is a house keeper of Castelio del Trebbio, one of the old wine factory in Tuscany, built in last twelve century. Almost whole building formed by stone and it's very cold inside there (I went in October)
He's work since teenager, when this castle didn't have electricity ... means no electric heater!
He is very loyal and enjoy work for this castle.

Nice black and white portrait. He's nicely framed by the pattern on the metal gate. Good expression too. Thanks for sharing,

Mariani: Black and white is the perfect choice for this portrait - for all the obvious reasons. Fine work. c

This is a lovely portrait shot, Mariani. You've placed him nicely off-centre against the old wagon wheel. there's a hinto of mystery in the man's smile and his shaded eyes. well rendered in b&w.
