VALLE D'AOSTA: UNA VACANZA DALL'ALTO
Italy / 1987 / 17'
The camera, on board of a helicopter, scans the Valdostan mountains with the peaks shining in the sky and the vast snow-capped land. The colours are brighter in winter and the contrasts are stronger. The church towers rise in a Christmas-like panorama. Skiers burst forth. Here is Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Mount Rosa on the borders of the valley; the monuments and the Aosta Roman arch. All sports can be practised here but the camera also shows tourists that there are many alternatives.
