I muri di pietra e sudore

I muri di pietra e sudore

A unique, world-famous territory, where the natural environment blends harmoniously with the man-made one: the Cinque Terre.A vertiginously steep stretch of coastline that the hand of man has been able to shape over centuries of hard work, carving out endless successions of terraced strips suspended over the sea, to create which it was necessary to transport millions of cubic meters of rock and earth and build thousands of kilometers of dry stone walls.An area today in danger because of erosion due to its gradual abandonment, which the winemaker Walter De Battè, together with a few people of good will , is, however, trying to stem, both to safeguard the five small villages nestled between the sea and the mountains, and to give continuity to a landscape so peculiar that it has few equals in the world.Photography, text and direction: Valter TorriMusic: Matteo Cremolini Narration: Saverio Indrio Editing: Donatella Orlandi, Valter Torri
