Hlinsko is a small industrial town located in South East Bohemia, Czech Republic. During the soviet period Hlinsko based its industry on the production of electrical appliances; now the only heritage left is the 100 m chimney that stands at the outskirts of the town before the forests that surrounds it appear.
This is where I used to spend more than three months a year when I was a kid, this is where half of my family lives.
I grew up and as it usually happens I started preferring to travel elsewhere, dedicating less time to that part of my life. Then, seven years ago I moved to London and left the other half of my family in Italy.
I ended up visiting Hlinsko even less often and, as with many things in my life, I started forgetting about it.
This is an attempt to rediscover the meaningful places of my past.
