Tale of the photo
Cornello is a tiny village in the province of Bergamo (Lombardy), located in the upper Val Brembana.
This place may not arouse particular interest, but its history is incredible. Suffice it to say that the postal service, as we know it today, used in every part of the world, was born right here. Jokingly we can say that Amazon must thank the village Cornello, but more precisely Omodeo Tasso who, in the XIII century, united some relatives in a group of couriers. This nucleus consisted of 32 elements and was referred to as the Compagnia dei Corrieri (discover all the fascinating history).
I have been to Cornello several times and photographically have fascinated me the gloomy mountains that surround the village. At dusk the stories of mountain devils that seem to be at the origin of Harlequin (the mask of the commedia dell’arte, born a short distance from the small village) come to life.
Here I took this photograph of the mountains with their sinister and enveloping atmospheres. The photo is sold in the 70×47 cm print format, on high quality Hahnemuhle photo paper.
