The 52' documentary MONTE CORNO - I THOUGHT I WAS FLYING about the first ascent in the History of mountaineering will be completed in June 2024:

On the 19th of August 1573, Francesco de Marchi climbed the impervious and rocky peak of the Corno Grande, the highest mountain of the Italian Appennin range, accomplishing an epic feat for his time: reaching a peak out of curiosity. He wrote his Chronicle anticipating by 213 years the ascent of Mont Blanc accomplished by Balmat and Paccard on 8 August 1786. 450 years after the feat, the film recounts the climb, narrated by Francesco De Marchi's own words, with spectacular images of the climb among the calcareous rocks of the Corno Grande. 

 

ECLECTIC COLLECTIONS - THE MANTIN HOUSE (52' documentary) is now available in France for schools, universities and libraries. Prominent French restaurateurs bring a new and sparkling perspective on their professions. Between exigency and passion, they renovate the furniture, paintings, tapestries and stuffed animals of the renowned Maison Mantin in France, revealing their mysteries and the bourgeois lifestyle of the late nineteenth century.
