  • Description

    Full title reads: "Italy. Blowing up a Mountain. Explosion of 20 tons of dynamite releases 40,000 tons of marble."

    Carrara, Italy.

    Shots of mountains with snow on the sides.

    Excavation on side of mountain - men are climbing on ladders - their tiny size shows the scale of the workings. They have been placing charges of dynamite. A man at the bottom is waving a flag. One man is climbing down the face of the rock on a rope. This is all taking place in a marble quarry.

    The explosion of the dynamite causes a large part of the mountainside to fall down. Clouds of dust and snow rise up.
