The Democratic Republic of Congo could feed almost 1 in 2 people on Earth.

Yet one in six Congolese people suffer from hunger.

Yet one in two Congolese suffers from moderate acute malnutrition.

Yet agriculture accounts for 70% of the population there.

Faced with this paradox, the peasants regroup in agricultural cooperatives. A handful of them share their daily lives with us, that of all those they represent.

A year of life in the Alps, from the thaw to the winter, through the eyes, the gestures and the reflections three characters: Virginie, Valentine and Marcel. Far from the stereotype of the “mountain man”, the characters that we will follow are an expression of a contemporary, resistant and sometimes innovative way to live and work in the Alpine area. A “come back” to a rural life style, is for them, a political and spiritual choice at the same time.

Bergamo. The condominiums “Terrazze fiorite” and “Bergamo Sole” (architects Giuseppe Gambirasio and Giorgio Zenoni, 1976), harshly opposed at first, are today among the most desirable residences in town. The meetings with those who live there have highlighted how over time the architectural quality of the spaces has formed the basis on which residents have created a specific culture of living, at the same time strongly linked to the public image of the building and the appropriateness of its private parts.
