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

enviromental they started appreciating wilderness and developing the outdoor skills that has allowed

them to travel and explore remote and wild lands. ‘Home Wild Home’ is more than a bikepacking film,

it’s a sign of gratitude to their own land and an encouragement to the recovery of L’Aquila, hit by a

devastating earthquake 10 years ago.
