Francesco and Giorgio, aka Montanus, decided to dedicate a video-tribute to the land where they were born and still live, celebrating the magnificent mountains where their desire to explore the wilderness has grown. ‘Home Wild Home’ is the latest film by Montanus, but it doesn’t tell of an expedition in a remote land like those they made in Patagonia and Iceland.

Montanus duo created a sort of tribute in honor of their own land, filming the backyard trails that link their hometown L’Aquila, in central Italy, with the massif of Gran Sasso d’Italia, where highest peaks of Apennine mountains are located. In this mountain environmental they started appreciating the wilderness and developing the outdoor skills that have allowed them to travel and explore remote and wildlands. ‘Home Wild Home’ is more than a bikepacking film, it’s a sign of gratitude to their own land and encouragement to the recovery of L’Aquila, hit by a devastating earthquake 10 years ago.
