Elena is 28 years old. Her days alternate between working in the city and in her family alpine farm and pastures. Subway, path, escalators, stable, physical effort, sweat, commitment, smiles, home: a new way to experience tradition.
*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.
