The construction of the "Macchina del Triduo dei Morti" is a Christian ritual born in 1771 in Malonno, Valle Camonica, to commemorate the dead, with solemn services for three days. Even today the original machine is installed.
The film is the winner of the competition “SEGNINCORTO – Valle Camonica / Patrimonio e Paesaggio” organized together with Comunità Montana di Valle Camonica and Borgo degli artisti Bienno (BS).
