Life in the alpine pastures
Photographer: Claudia Lo Stimolo
Exhibit Title: Life in the alpine pastures
In recent years, some livestock farmers have decided to abandon industrial sheds and return to the old farm. In Italy, a small percentage of facilities are converting to ethical and sustainable practices and, even if the process is slow, it presupposes a radical transformation, focused on animal welfare. In addition to the principle of a healthy diet, there is grazing for five months of the year. Transhumance is the journey from the barn to the mountain pastures, an ancient tradition during which shepherds lead their flocks to the mountains for the summer. This tradition represents one of the distinctive cultural traits of Val Sangone and Val di Susa, in Northern Italy. An activity handed down from one generation to the next, together with love and respect for the territory. In these valleys, several breeders continue the tradition of shepherding from father to son, following a much more ethical philosophy that is opposed to the concept of industrial farming. Shepherds who still live in contact with nature, accompanied by animals that follow them faithfully along the way. A return to traditions and healthy habits that represent the heritage of our past.
