ITALY: Drone footage of the Formazza Valley & hydroelectric power

Drone footage of one of Italy's hidden secrets: Val Formazza. This valley is source of clean hydroelectric power since 1900. Most of the power-plants were built by Ettore Conti, with the supervision of renown architect Piero Portaluppi. Most of them are a work of art and not only they survive, but they provide power to the North of Italy. The Formazza valley's pristine landscape is home to small, adorable and very well kept villages. The valley is also home to several dams that provide water to the power-plants. Ettore Conti and Piero Portaluppi were also the owner and the architect that preserved Leonardo Da Vinci's garden and vineyard in Milan. The video features one of the most famous Conti powerplants: Ettore Conti Verampio Power-Plant, which has been operating since 1914.
Featured is also the Cascata del Toce, a waterfall on the Toce river. The waterfall is only completely visible in summer months as its waters are used for hydroelectric purposes.
