Photographer's Note

Fuggerei. The oldest social settlement in the world. Part three.

The Fuggerei an ensemble with eight lanes and seven gates is a 田ity within a city having its own church, 田ity walls and 田ity gates. Inscribed
plaques over three gates and the stone lily coat of arms serve as reminders of the founding family.

Especially important sights are the Fugger museum
(entrance Mittlere Gasse 14, the facade of the house is marked with a plaque commemorating the great-grandfather of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart), the Markus church at 溺arkuspl舩zle as well as the Hchstetter oriel on the administrative building on Jakoberstrasse. Inscriptions on the facades explain
the present or past function of various buildings in the Fuggerei and the remarkable details of the social settlement.

Door:
Each apartment in the Fuggerei has its own entrance from outside. This detail assures residents of their privacy and independence, and the appearance of
poverty is avoided. Front doors and lintels have varying forms showing the usage of doors which were taken from previously destroyed houses.
