Ritratti in malga (Portraits in Malga)
BRA-Cinema Impero – Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 211
Cesen Massifs and Treviso Alps. Not far from the famous Prosecco lands, some people produce quality cheeses by working raw milk at small alpine summer houses known as malga, once common all over the region. They represent an alternative to the standardization of taste and the abandonment of mountain pastures. The documentary shows the daily work of the malghesi, through visuals of pastures, milking, and production of butter, cheese and ricottas. This film is also a testimonial of the few dairy producers: Ferruccio, Ruggero, Silvio, Serena, and Gildo.
