The village

The story behind the village of Monteviasco (Italy), that can be reached only with a gondola or hiking. After WW2 400 people lived there, now it's only 12. We interviewd two of them and rode on the ancient path down to the valley. Camera, editing & idea: Marco Toniolo Rider: Sergio Ghezzi Music: see credits at the end of the video http://www.vimeo.com/16412169

 This is simply by far the best vid I'v seen in many months/years-especially with the background history.
I'v been passing such remote, lonely, villages up in the mountains in Italy, but that was usually somewhere in the south - like on a rode to Rome.
But never seen such in Varese.
I wonder what will happen to this place in 10-15 years from now.
I hope it will not be gone.

 I can see Red bull using that ancient road and some of the village for an urban dh event

 disagree.. redbull would destroy the road by making it faster or more rideable, etc.. i dont think it would benefit the village seeing that its such a small town and community that has nothing but their own history.

 Some of that reminds me of some of the trails around Molini di Triora. The Italian Alps are a cool place. Fact.
