Italy: Planpincieux glacier in danger of collapse | AFP

The hovering block of ice from the Planpincieux glacier within the Mont Blanc massif is estimated at about 500,000 cubic metres, the equivalent size of Milan’s cathedral. Experts say a recent rise in temperature means that the massive chunk of ice could break off and slide down the mountain, threatening homes to the east of the picturesque town and ski resort.

The Truth Behind Italy’s $1 Homes

Starting in early 2019, 20 towns across Italy began selling homes for €1, or about $1.10.

Camper van cinema brings big screen to remote villages in Italy’s Cuneo | AFP

In the mountain villages of the province of Cuneo, a camper van which has been transformed into a travelling cinema brings locals the magic of the big screen. The idea was conceived around 5 years ago by Fabio Gianotti and his wife who decided to repurpose their 40-year-old camper. “This year with COVID we had a boom”, says Fabio Gianotti. With little to do in remote parts of Cuneo, the camper brings people together to watch movies under the stars.
