Jewels of the Alps - Italy' s great lakes - Lake Garda

A film by Daniela Pulverer
Documentary (52 min), ZDF/Arte, in co-production with DocLab

Lake Garda is a dream summer destination and a lake of contrasts, where lemon tress thrive on the steep rocky shores of a glacial valley, ancient castles guard historic borders and Roman ruins tell tales of a long and turbulent past. Framed by cliffs and mountains in the north and opening out to a wide, unfettered space in the south, this contrast has shaped the lives of the local people, flora and fauna.
