Spider webs – A journey through the abandoned villages in the Apennine Mountains

edited by the “Boschilla” group


This diary of a walking trip explores the depopulation of the Apennine Region while maintaining a delicate balance between the memories and ambitions of Italy’s minor mountain range. This Off-Course journey examines the history of these mountains while taking a close look at the present and even the prospects for a future yet to be written. A narrative blend formed by stories that are interwoven like the threads of a spider’s web to reveal the soul of a “Hinterland” that is still rather unknown to the general public and rarely written about. The same authors created the film “Entroterra” (The Hinterlands) which was presented at the 2018 Trento Film Festival and is the winner of the 19th edition of the Lucania Film Festival.
