TWO HEADED MOUNTAIN
Official Selection - CinemAmbiente (Turin)
How was the pandemic experienced on both sides of the Matterhorn? Breuil-Cervinia and Zermatt are divided by mountains, but they have always been connected by winter sports enthusiasts and professionals. The pandemic broke this balance. In Switzerland, the new rules have not prevented people from experiencing the mountains. In Italy, the total closure wiped out tourism and created a melancholy landscape.
