You might think these are workmen without any elegance, but when you see them at work, the movements are fluid, without any hesitation [1]

It was a peaceful and serene moment, as the sun rose higher in the sky, the pool began to take shape at Podere Santa Pia (Castiglioncello Bandini, Tuscany)

   
   

For the labourer, there was no greater satisfaction than this - to take something raw and unformed and shape it into something new. And as the morning wore on, they continued their work, slowly but surely molding the land into something beautiful and new. The sun beat down mercilessly, casting long shadows over the scene below.



   
   

 

As the sun rose higher in the sky, the pool began to take shape, the labourer were carefully fitting out the height, measuring the size of the pool

As the sun rose higher in the sky, the volume of the pool was assuming a definite form, they were carefully fitting out the height, measuring the size of the pool.
And later, the rhythmic thumping of the concrete pump echoed through the air as it poured its liquid cargo onto the barren ground. The men in their hard hats and heavy boots scurried around like elegant dancers, feverishly smoothing and leveling the thick grey mass.
The air was heavy with the scent of freshly poured concrete and the hum of activity. There was a sense of purpose and momentum, as if nothing could stop this force of progress.
As the concrete spread and solidified, the first floor slab of the Santa Pia swimming pool began to take shape.


Constructing our pool at Podere Santa Pia. The first basic layer of concrete, il magrone di cemento Constructing our pool at Podere Santa Pia, reinforcement of concrete with deformed reinforcing bars connected by wire You might think these are workmen without any elegance, , but when you see them at work, the movements are fluid, without any hesitation Carefully fitting out the height, measuring the size of the pool

The pool, an oasis in this Tuscan heaven, was beginning to come to life

 

And yet, for all the noise and motion, there was a certain stillness in the air. A quietude that belied the frenzy of construction. It was as if the very act of creation required a certain hush, a respectful nod to the forces at play.
