Walking and thinking, walking and loving. Silence, peace, cool weather, harmony, observing around. So beautiful Valtournenche, an Italian mountain center placed in Valle d’Aosta. I love mountains very much and this is the place of my heart. This center has many villages that offer very interesting points of view to photographers. I saw some sweet squares and I thought why not capture this nice corners remembering beautiful moments, the elapsed time with my family, my friends, people more closed to me but too far from me. I came back in Valtournenche last february , I couldn’t know really about the potential pandemic. I promised my self to shot more and more till the end of march but I was forced to stop. During that days I visited two of these villages deciding to test vintage photography and black and white shots: Crepin and Cretaz. I chose them because, according to me, they fit better this style. So I started to consider the nice fountain and the narrow corners of Cretaz village, the place of ancient crafts where twice a year people resident in remember their life gathering in this different squares. Then continuing on Crepin my eyes pointed towards the mountain landscape, the peak called Becca, the streets details with typical houses, and the bell tower: it’s really this bell tower that seems to tell me: “Welcome back home Stefania”.I wish that it could always be like this. Remembering best moments, I didn’t want to leave hoping to come back as soon as possible.
