Besides this geomorphological feature are also the environmental and historical aspects characterizing the Apennines. Following the trails along the crests, the abandoned rail lines that once connected the country's interior from north to south, the film reveals Italy's heartland that resists rural depopulation and is home to new and old sources of spirituality.Terre d'Acqua - Il canale Cavour e il riso (26'13")A journey from Turin to Milan along the Cavour Canal as it crosses the extensive Po Plain rice fields. A major hydraulic infrastructure, the 80-km long waterway was built in the mid 1800s to ensure a constant water supply to the rice fields.

Sole, sale, Sele ... Le bonifiche della Capitanata e della Piana di Eboli (29'50")From east to west, from Apulia to Campania. Farming on the sandy soils of Zapponeta, the glare of the salt farms at Margherita di Savoia, and the dam at Occhito, the hydraulic basin has changed the future of Capitanata, an arid area where scarce rainfall would seem to preclude farming the land. Then, to the west, toward the Piana del Sele, where specialized crop farming is done, the fourth and fifth category on the food pyramid, in the heart of the area where the Mediterranean diet is rooted, a true "elixir for a long life".
