Clouds, a field, water flowing along a canal, an old man going back home. Time passes slowly in Angelo and Gabriella’s countryside, in Veneto. It is May and, as in many other regions, they are busy to get ready to receive the “Rogazioni”, a procession created to remit to God’s protection land and people. They prepare what they need for the procession and build four wooden crosses that, after being blessed by the priest when the cortege passes through their altar, will be placed at the four corners of the field in order to defend the harvest from natural disasters, that have already hit the region in the past.
