Thank you Fabrizio. It is really interesting. At the time when I shot this photo, some of the home owners have worked to repair their old houses that were once abandoned long ago. I've heard rumors that they plan to rebuild the village and return it into usable condition. The houses and village should remain the same as in the days when people lived in it.
