The imaginative world of Beniamino Servino

The abandoned mines in the mountains of Campania, sketched by Beniamino Servino, a Naples-trained architect who lives in their shadow, in the town of Caserta

The Latin caption, cave canem (‘beware of the dog’), plays on the Italian word for the abandoned pits (cave) and the desolate landscape that remains behind. This is one of a number of sketches on the subject by the delicately aphoristic artist, who takes pride in his position in the architectural world: quelli che stanno al margine hanno semplicemente un’orbita più grande (‘those who stand at the margins simply have a wider orbit’).
