The first minutes of:
Montagne di vetro (2010)
Mountains of glass
In the summer of 2009 twelve students and three teachers of the school for glass-art “Vetroricerca” travelled from the italian city of Bolzano to Latin America.
Their destination was Chacas. A city, 3.500m above sea level, in the center of the peruvian Andes. They stayed there for a whole month and build, together with local students, a new window for the regions biggest church.
Montagne di vetro is documentation (with a short animation sequence) of their travel, the work with glass and the city of Chacas.
