From the image archive containing around 3,500 black and white negatives for a research project on the Hohenstaufen castles in South Italy dating from 1905-1911. Arthur Haseloff and Martin Wackernagel traveled extensively in the region and photographed important medieval architectural monuments which were in danger of decay at the time. This photo was taken in 1908 by a photographer identified only as Pantaleo.
