ALPI L’ARCO OCCIDENTALE - PIEMONTE VETTE E VALLI
Italy / 2001 / 41'
An eagle cicles above climbes on the summit of the Rocce del Novolè tower, in Gran Paradiso: a symbolic image of a film dedicated to the man-mountain relationship. In a train of sports achievements ( the ascent of “ Becco meridionale della Tribolazione”) and encounters with the communities that have created centres of cultural autonomies ( the Walser, the Occitan-Provence, the Waldenses). lastly, against the background of valleys surrounding it, the majestic alpine giant, Mt. Rosa, portrayed in the secret beauty of its glacies, refuges and colours.
