Castropignano (CB), May 2019. The entry into the village of the Colantuono family herd, the last custodians of this millenary practice, on the last day of transhumance.  The 300 cows, predominantly of a podolic breed, are moved towards summer pasture following ancient tradition. This is becoming a stronger and stronger source of attraction for the villages crossed along the way. The Colantuono are the only remaining family in Italy to bring forth the ancient tradition of the transhumance along the tratturi network.

Giuseppe Nucci was born in 1982 in a mountain village in Molise, one of the least known and developed regions of Italy. Over the past few years he focused on documentary projects which obtained numerous international publications. Among these, National Geographic Magazine and Stern stand out.
