Photographer's Note

Candelo is a small medieval village. About 8000 inhabitants, but is very popular for its "Ricetto". Ricetto is a typical mediaeval constructions in Piedmont. It was built in the 14th century by the people as requested by noble family of Vialardi. Within its perimeter there are 157 well-preserved smallhouses. There were used as a warehouse and in case of enemy raids, as a shelter for the peasants and the nobleman's family. It's a quadrangular plan 110 meters large and 120 meters long. Very amazing to visit.
