Langhe Doc - coming out jan 2011

Maria Teresa, who thought in life he would do anything but that, has taken over his father’s winery and now produces excellent Barolo and Nebbiolo wines, with the same stubborn respect for tradition; Silvio was a tiler, has left a lucrative job and now makes traditional cheeses in a remote village, with his family and fifty sheep; Mauro was employed as a storekeeper in a supermarket, he has been fired and has decided to start self-producing and selling handmade, artisanal pasta.

Three characters, three stories poised between “normal” and “extreme” to describe Langhe, a unique territory, universally recognized as one of the most beautiful places in Italy.
Here the coexistence between man and environment has reached its highest levels: man has been capable to make gastronomic excellences out of a seemingly harsh land man,; in the geometric perfection of the vineyards, the hills appear as designed, the shaped landscape attract droves of tourists and is a fresh candidate for Unesco World Heritage.

Nevertheless, Langhe have not remained immune from the processes of economic growth and landscape transformation. Urbanization, overbuilding, abandonment of the less profitable areas and trades: these elements risk to transform Langhe in just another piece of what in “Langhe Doc” Giorgio Bocca calls “Italy of warehouses”

Those of Maria Theresa, Silvio and Mauro are stories of people who have seen a future they did not like and have refused it. Their challenges are still open, they’re not yet fully met and perhaps they never will: they move in one direction, the world moves in another one, quite the opposite.
