STORIE DI CONFINE FRA TRENTINO E VENETO
Italy / 2008 / 59'
The alpine ridge between Trentino and Veneto provides inspiration to explain important historical facts, showing the landscapes and discoveries that point to the existence of whole families and communities in a still little known alpine area. The life of these people and their relationship with nature in a frontier land, are narrated through the historical new readings of important documents from 14th to 19th century. The economy linked to the woods and pastures, and the work in this alpine area are described, taking into consideration the rich historical past: conflicts between the different authorities such as the Veneto Republic and the Austrian Empire, revisions and agreements about the border and imposition of taxes and imperial duties. In addition, the description and characteristics of the landscape can help to promote these alpine areas that not only have important historical interest but natural beauty and hiking opportunities.
