The industrial history of an Alpine valley, between documentary and poetry

The Maurienne mountains are marked with ambiguities, contradictions and oppositions. Nicknamed “the aluminum valley”, the space is controlled and exploited.

The Arc torrent was conducive to the development of the aluminum industry thanks to its ability to supply factories with hydroelectricity.

Many in the twentieth century, there is only one left today, bordered by a motorway – one of the only valleys to have one – and soon by a high-speed train line, however shaken by various scandals linked to suspicions corruption and environmental damage.

Even if a few winter sports resorts dot the summits, most of the space in Maurienne is of the order of uninhabitable, thus corresponding to the romantic image of pure and sublime nature.
