Mines of Cogne. A silent portrait of an important enterprise that had a crucial role to the Italian industrial development until the 70's, when the activities of magnetite’s exploitation came to an end.
Two are the maintenance men. Their daily work is to keep a place, or a non-place, alive. A place risking vanishing. Themselves are the children of miners since generations.
Through a journey into the mine, through daily repetitive tasks, almost with hypnotic rhythm, Valeria Allievi thinks poetically through what is left behind, through what remains.
