This short documentary tells us the story of a very dear place to me: San Martino di Petrella Salto. A small village hidden between the mountains of central Italy.
This is the place where part of my family comes from.
San Martino just like many villages of Italy and southern Europe is going through a strong process of depopulation, as the youngsters migrate to the big city and the old people slowly fade away just like the local culture, the spoken dialect and uncountable tradition and costumes.
With this project I tried to catch a last glimpse of what this archaic and rural world was, thanks to the testimony of the few people left.
