VILLAS AND PALACES IN ITALY
Romain Thiery, a native of France who lives in Montpellier, is a self-taught professional photographer, born on July 4 1988.
Romain is also an amateur piano player, starting at the age of 5. Starting photography 10 years ago following the work of his mother who specialized in heritage photography. That hobby turned into a passion and, eventually, a profession the day he found a forgotten piano in an abandoned castle in south of France.
Since 2009, he has been traveling around Europe in search of forgotten pianos. This journey gives him the chance to visit and photograph unique abandoned places—from villas to palaces.
You will find here photographs taken in Italy between 2014 and 2020. These buildings are gigantic for the most part: hotels, orphanages, hospitals. An immense space, overwhelming in size, it's impossible not to feel vulnerable in front of these majestic giants.

Thank you, Romain.
