Transumanza Tour is a journey through 6 different farms across Italy from Basilicata to Liguria. Its eyes are those of a music band, its chance that of wwoofing, used by the band as a form of exchange for food and lodging. Through the band’s experiences, endeavours and strains, it’s introduced to farm’s innkeepers, bearers of the traditions of an archaic world and at the same time witnesses of a new social phenomenon: return to the land, return to the archaic. Return of young graduates, families tired of the tyranny of consumerism, the unemployed looking for a way out of mere survival.
