I was really pleased that we just happened to be in town on the morning of March 1st and being a beautiful sunny morning we decided to stay and watch some of the filming. Having my camera with me how could I resist not taking some photos.
Photos in the above mosaics are my own and can be viewed in larger individual format by visiting my complete album at Flickr.com entitled Marta Filming
The video is of the television programme aired on Rai Uno on March 11th 2012 of which Marta is just one of the places covered The video may be watched on Rai Uno, just click on this link, Alto Lazio - Linea Verde
The programme is nearly an hour long and is about the agriculture in the region in which we live, Alto Lazio. If you have the time to view sometime it is very interesting as it covers many interesting topics, in Italian, but I think you will get the gist of it, even if you do not understand all that is being said.
What will you see growing and where, firstly the growing of cauliflowers in the region and how they are prepared for market. From Civita Castellana, you will see the cattle used in the making of mozarella, from Capranica, the hazelnut groves. The stars of the show use a helicopter to get from place to place and fly over the region to show you more, Lago di Bracciano, Lago di Vico, Viterbo and finally our own, metaphorically as in where we live Lago di Bolsena.
It is in the latter part of the programme that businesses very local to us are visited, including Goats at the Cheese Shop on the road to Viterbo at Monte Jugo and Marta's Fish Farm where they breed the Corregone to keep the lake stocked and of course the fishermen themselves out on the lake.
Also of course in the film are all the local businesses that we saw being filmed in the town centre the day Linea Verde came to town.
It was very interesting to watch the filming and even more so to watch the programme when it was aired on Rai Uno on Sunday March 11th. Especially when we were able to spot not only places but people we knew and if you know where to look, which you don't, you may even spot us in the film!
