• Short Summary

    A visit to Lipari in Italy shows us the volcanic coast, street scenes and fishermen.

  • Description

    Lipari in Sicily, Italy.

    L/S of a large passenger motor boat travelling across the water; L/S of the volcanic coastline and part of the town built high on a rocky cliff; a fisherman is seen in the foreground. L/S of the harbour, panning right to show the town.

    Various street scenes in the town; locals walking about, a donkey carrying panniers, stylish man in flip flops (only an Italian could manage it), a woman sitting in a doorway sorting apricots. Several shots of souvenirs carved from lava rock and sea shells; a man is seen carving from a lump of stone; a display case shows more souvenirs (quite tacky) and a hand-written sign reading 'Artigianato locale, visitate nell'interno'.

    M/Ss of a man looking at some tombs that date back to ancient Greek and Roman times. Various shots of colourful flowers and plants growing on the island. Various shots of the harbour with small fishing boats strewn with nets pulled up onto the sand; a fisherman sorts some ropes next to his boat. On the quay fishermen throw their catch of fish and eels into baskets, then weigh them. M/S of the stony beach with fishing boats moored on the sand; houses and the hills are seen in the background.

    Note: print used for telecine transfer is quite scratched; neg is incomplete. Cuts exist - see separate record.
