At Giazza, a Cimbrian village in eastern Lessinia, the Boschi’s family has been preserving and conveying the ancient charcoal tradition for forty years.
In the words of each member, strongly emerges the bond with this profession which bears values increasingly rare ​​in this chaotic consumer society: the sense of family, patience and sharing.
Precious memories resurfaces: Nello's childhood, divided between school, breeding and help to his father and also the formative encounter with two expert carbonai who will initiate him to this ancient craft.
The deep conversations around the fire along with the singing of coal, pervade the memories of his son Giorgio, who is now an expert carbonaio , and those of the young great-granddaughter Gloria who carefully observes this ancient practice eager to become, one day, an active part of this magical rite, which means family to her.
