"In Volo sul Cuore", how to save Monterosso's monastery

The monastery of Monterosso in the Cinque Terre

The Frati Cappuccini are launching an online campaign to raise funds in order to save their 17th century monastery, damaged by floods in recent years in Liguria.

The initiative regards the monastery of Monterosso in the Cinque Terre, which has become famous for being the top one place in the survey made by the Italian Environment Fund. To promote the restoration, the friars have filmed a video, produced by Dronesense using a drone for aerial shots.
