Shortly after the impact, the stone opened and turned into two stone lovers, Réna and Bàdil. The two, frightened, looked around and, desperate, hugged themselves. Their tears created a river, a river that would have divided them forever. Bàdil’s heart then crossed the whole sky and hid inside Réna.
*The film was realized for the special project and competition RESIDENZE IN VIDEO | SEGNINCORTO – Valle Camonica / Heritage and Landscape, organized together with the Mountain Community of Valle Camonica – managing the Cultural District and coordinating the UNESCO site and MAB (Man and Biosphere) area – and our partners of Borgo degli Artisti in Bienno (BS). The project is dedicated to the lovely memory of Pierfausto Bettoni, inspirer and tireless animator of Borgo degli Artisti who first brought with conviction and enthusiasm Corto e Fieno to Valle Camonica.
