The old saddlery

Simona took me to an old saddlery in Grosseto where the owner makes the traditional saddles of Maremma.

Here I am showing you also a  photo of how we set a light so that we could get some shots, the place was rather dark and a flash would destroy the “feeling”.

I found the whole procedure very interesting and the smell of leather was always something I loved. it is nice to see people who still make things with their hands.

Looking at the photos also makes me thinK that old traditions tend to die, and that is sad.
