THE EIGHT MOUNTAINS

THE EIGHT MOUNTAINS

À propos

The international sensation about two young Italian boys from different backgrounds who meet in the mountains every summer, and the men they grow to become Pietro, a lonely city boy, spends his childhood summers in a secluded valley in the Alps. Bruno, the cowherd son of a local stonemason, knows the mountains intimately. Together they spend many summers exploring the mountains' meadows and peaks, discovering the similarities and differences in their lives. As time passes, the two boys come to find the true meaning of friendship and camaraderie even as their paths diverge, Bruno's in the mountains and Pietro's in cities across the globe.
