Beautiful and Sublime
the Marmore's Falls /Umbria/Italy

a short film by Fabio Palmieri
music by Giuseppe Verdi - Messa da Requiem /Lacrymosa Dies Illa

The Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore's Falls) is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans. Its total height is 165 m (541 feet), making it the tallest man-made waterfall in the world.

The legend tells that a nymph named Black fell in love with a handsome shepherd Velino. But Juno, jealous of this love, transformed the nymph into a river, which took the name of Black. Then Velino, not to lose his beloved, threw himself from the Marmore cliff. This leap, repeated for eternity, is now the Marmore Falls.

Gear: Canon 5Dmk3 + Magic Lantern RAW (Prores444)
