Mountanus has produced another beautiful bikepacking feature in the winter scenes of Italy. They nailed it with a beautiful story and even better cinematography.
Tramontana [tramonˈtaːna] it’s a cold and dry wind blowing from the north Europe towards Italy, carrying snow and frigid temperature. In ancient times the Latin word trānsmontānus (trāns- + montānus) indicated what was beyond the mountains, unknown, barbaric and dangerous. “Tramontana” is a journey through human ancestral fears and primordial virtues of the fire, the natural element that, since the dawn of time, allowed it to defeat the dark, the cold, the isolation and the wild beasts. A tribute to the human wild side that gets lost in the origins of our story.If you want to get a better understanding of the men behind these films, be sure to check out our interview from when they released The Cold Vein a few year back.
