During the first week of January, I was in Umbria for couple of days to review some nice places and to shoot some new images.
I love Umbria, I love it’s people, food and wine.
It’s a fantastic place to rest your body and recharge your mind.
During a tour close to downtown, I found this amazing place: “Giuditta Brozzetti Hand-Woven Artistic Textiles”
Immediately attracted by the name, I passed the door and one second later I entered inside an original 1900 factory. I want to thank you Marta Cucchia for her time spent describing me the origin of this place.
The Laboratory was founded in 1921 by Giuditta Brozzetti
and is one of the last remaining in Italy where hand weaving on jacquard looms is executed. Artistic and entirely handmade reproduction of authentic Umbrian and Italian Medieval and Renaissance design are executed on 18th and 19th century wooden looms.

I’ll back in this place to take more pictures and I’ll be happy to take you with me in one of my next workshops.
Gear used: Leica M9P “sensor refreshed”, ISO 1250 and a Tri Elmar MATE at different focal lengths, f/4.
