At the edge of the empire
documentary short film / 2015 / 29’

Until the end of World War I, Borghetto all'Adige was the border between the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Italian Kingdom. What has become of this historical place at the feet of the Alps? Nowadays, the village is at the margins of economical life and its strength comes from the community.
