The violent storm a week ago which did so much damage to this area (full article and images here) has still not finished causing chaos.
During that storm amongst some of the damage across the region, a lot of it did not make the headlines.
People just mopped up and cleared up, and got on with their lives.
Keane’s studio in Barga Vecchia was one of those places hit by the storm with water rising up thorough the floor and flooded the studio.
It took a week to dry out and instal a dehumidifier and build some more shelves inside the studio to keep the paintings off above the floor should the water come back.
Unfortunately, this afternoon a rain storm, not so heavy as the week before and lasting only a few minutes hit Barga Vecchia and within 10 – 15 minutes, the studio was once again flooded.
Apparently the drainage system in the street outside the studio has been damaged and now any large influx of water means it overflows into the ground and into the nearby studio.
