STORYLINE
The documentary recovers unpublished archive material where the great writer Mario Rigoni Stern tells the events of the First World War which happened in Asiago upland in the north east of Italy. Stern’s look is the historical memory of the battlefields location, but especially of the human incidents that traversed it.

His words impart the large respect for the signs dispersed in the natural environment, that remember a tragic past which we must never forget.
