Photographer's Note

Fort of Bard (Italian: Forte di Bard - French: Fort de Bard) is a fortified complex built in the 19th century by the House of Savoy on a rocky prominence above Bard, a town and comune in the Aosta Valley region of northwestern Italy.

Fort of Bard has been completely restored after many years of neglect. In 2006 it reopened to tourists as the Museum of the Alps, it has additional art exhibitions and galleries. In the summer, the main courtyard is used to host musical and theatrical performances.

The fort, which is at the entrance to the Aosta Valley, is located in a narrow gorge next above the Dora Baltea river. It has been used for millennia to control the historic route between Italy and France.
