Categories: Culture and creativity -Cinema and Audio-visual
Six films about the mountains and their culture, selected and made available by Italy's most prestigious festival in this field: Trento Film Festival.
Sette Sguardi sul cinema italiano Alpinismo

Launched in 1952 by the Italian Alpine Club (CAI) and the Municipality of Trento, the Trento Film Festival is one of the oldest film festivals in Italy and has always been dedicated to mountain expeditions, alpinism and high-altitude culture.

Please find below the list of films made available to the Ministry’s foreign network for Seven insights into Italian cinema, on the occasion of the exhibition Italian Routes:

  • Ninì by Gigi Giustiniani (2014), 65′
    Ninì Pietrasanta was one of the very few female mountaineers of the 1930s: her photographs and films allow us to reconstruct the story of her life.
  • Tom by Elena Goatelli and Angel Esteban Vega (2015), 67′
    Tom Ballard is the son of the great British mountaineer Alison Hargreaves, who died on K2 when he was six. It was then that he dedicated his life to mountaineering.
  • Storie di pietre by Alessandro Leone (2019), 74′
    What drives the small community of Frascaro, near Norcia, to remain tied to a land that never stops quaking? A culture with a desire to survive takes on the challenges of post-earthquake isolation.
  • La regina di Casetta by Francesco Fei (2018), 80′
    Gregoria is the only teenager left in Casetta di Tiara, in the Upper Mugello valley, a village inhabited by just eleven people. A touching and topical story about the fate of Italy’s inland areas.
  • Piccola terra by Michele Trentini (2012), 54′
    Valstagna, Canale di Brenta, Valsugana, province of Vicenza: small “patches of land” and the challenge of breathing new life into a terraced landscape.
  • Vergot by Cecilia Bozza Wolf (2016), 60′
    Two brothers, an exuberant father and an invisible yet supportive mother. The younger brother has discovered that he is gay, but the world around him will not accept this, first and foremost his father.
