Marsi’ Pastoralism

The rural Abruzzo of shepherds

Marsi’s Pastoralism is a short reportage about livestock workers in Marsica, a part of the Abruzzo region, Italy. Here, farming has always been a business attached to the local tradition.

I wanted to focus not on the sheep grazing but much more on the livestock maintenance, an exhausting work activity that follows the grazing itself.

After being followed some local people in Forme, a little village within the Marsica, I spent a working day with Francesco, a local shepherd, inside his property.
