Boys Watching Uncle Milk Cow

« Back to Meltdown, The Alps Under Pressure, February, 2006 National Geographic Magazine

Young nephews watch their uncle milk cows in the field in a Ladino community in the Dolomites. <br />
Two brothers and a sister Andrea, Irma and Guiseppe Costabiei (all unmarried) live together farming on property that has been in the family for generations.  La Valle is made up of a Ladino culture where the people have their own language.  They have close ties to the old ways--raking hay by hand.  Two nephews help rake and watch their uncle milk cows.
