The first pic was last week and the second is from Fall 2017. We've never walked up to the Capella della Madonna, just admired it from the road. Not sure...but looks like the area next to it is growing? My angle is slightly different... either way, I think some things should remain "unimproved"!
The photos are not of a high enough resolution to make out the details. So at least to my eyes, it's hard to say what's going on there. Might not necessarily be all "bad". Sometimes we tourists don't always have the whole picture, so one has to be cautious when forming an opinion.
The "good" : all the trees are still alive and in place, including some down the road to the left. One in front of the farmhouse seems to be bare of leaves, but that might be a seasonal thing. The area of the chapel itself is untouched. The woodland in the foreground is still there.
The "unknown" : there is certainly development going on of some sort. What look like sheds have been constructed behind the building, and to the upper right. Shade might be needed, not necessarily "bad", and sometimes just a plain necessity. Something is happening in front of the building, but this could be a temporary stage in a construction process. An expansion of some sorts also is a sign that at least people have reasons to live there and have a viable business - let's hope that they are managing to continue to live off the land in a reasonable way. Some places in Italy that look like paradise are being abandoned.
Maybe next time you're in the area, you could drive up the road for a closer look, might be interesting...
