A film by Almut Faass
Documentary (52 min), ZDF/Arte, in co-production with DocLab
A dream destination for many, but only a fortunate few ever actually get to go there: the glittering lakes of Upper Italy. This episode of ‘Jewels of the Alps’ takes us to Lago Maggiore in the fall, to scenes of untamed nature and encounters with people closely connected to the area. Some upholding the old traditions, others making new ones to earn their keep here – as a tea farmer, stone mason, winery owner or Alpine goatherd.
