Donatello, 44, Woodcutter

Donatello, 44, Woodcutter Intermesoli (Pietracamela), 800 m a.s.l. Since he was twelve, Donatello has always had a strong passion for the mules. He explains that they are an indispensable element in his job. During the year, together with the team he belongs, he collects about 2,500 tons of wood from beech, oak and hornbeam. Almost all the wood is chopped down from woods growing close to the Gran Sasso and loaded on mules, then they carry it downstream. Lately, together with the State Forestry Department, his team helped with the identification and cutting of maple trees for the construction of treasured violins.
