    Rosso 70

    Francesco Mansutti (2010)

    This film retraces 70 years of the climbing group Scoiattoli di Cortina (The Cortina Squirrels). First-hand accounts and wonderful contemporary footage tell the story of people and mountains, mountaineering and life, happiness and grief, against the backdrop of a slowly changing Cortina d'Ampezzo. Generations, mountaineering, climbing... all change, yet a strong bond links past and present: love for the mountains, climbing, the Dolomites and home. Over their 70-year history, this love has enabled the Scioattoli di Cortina not only to maintain their identity, but also to progress and look towards new horizons, to the extent that they have become a symbol of the town of Cortina and its mountains.

    Gerald Salmina (2009)
