ALPARC is pleased to present the multivision "for the Alps", an audiovisual production built around more than 400 photographs painstakingly selected from the 10,000 shots taken and shortlisted by park officers in nearly 60 protected areas. These areas are represented by 20 management bodies who are full partners in this unique creative piece.
“For the Alps” pays visual tribute to the diversity found in the Alps: landscapes, cultures, habitats, lifestyles, and the potential for creating links between these areas that are slowly being fragmented.
Like a sensible and aesthetic testimony, “for the Alps” is the basic of the dialog between local actors, protected areas administrator and visitors. The multivision takes the viewer on an unusual journey through the Alps, travelling from the lofty mountain heights to inhabited areas, from East to West, North to South. It is like being picked up and carried along at the will of the four winds.
The production will be premiered on 24 May 2012, the European Day of Parks. Twenty protected areas in six Alpine countries will screen the multivision production created by Alex Gordon Rowbotham and set to original music by Sandro di Stefano.

The multivision « for the Alps » is a joint project of ALPARC and around 20 managers or networks of Alpine protected areas.
From the 24 of May on, this common communication tool will be distributed by all 20 partners in their territory over the whole summer season and it will be subsequently placed at the disposal of all Alpine protected areas.
