I was walking on a hidden street in the town of Cannobio, where I spend almost every weekend, when I saw a very colorful facade. Blue walls with a very powerful massive green entrance door. I tried to take a picture of the whole context but, I had only my 50mm macro lense with me. I divided the image in two pieces. And something got to me:


The big door, heavy beyond beliefs and a madonna holding a child on top of it.


The first, as a symbolic protection from the outside world, from the intruders. The second one a symbolic maternal protection. Yet the door was unlocked.


Luckily the madonna is always there, protecting the house. From what? From who?
