The Story to live together
It is becoming more and more difficult to find new levers for the professions related to farming and seafaring traditions of Cetara and for this reason, the Association “Amici delle Alici” wishes to enhance this heritage of skills through the creation of a documentary. Luigi is putting together the crew that will collect the video and photo material. He needs curious people who can grasp the soul of this community.
