|UrBees: "our revolution! We help bees to survive in our cities with us"|
Bees, tiny and so precious, yet many people aren't aware they are disappearing from many countries.

In fact, one of the project founders, Antonio Barletta actually has a beehive on in balcony in the very central Via Cavour in Turin downtown, and the honey displayed on the stall came from there!

In the effort to raise the public consciousness about the importance of bees, UrBees organizes activities, conferences, exhibits and educational workshops at all levels. I kept that in mind and when Mara LeGrand asked to film something about bees in Piedmont, and they were the first ones I thought of.

The view was as amazing as the traffic noise though, and this is how I got curious to listen to Davide's interview.

With that amazing view, that wonderful light and his friendly demeanor, Davide earned the title of l'uomo delle api or the bees' man.
This is how Summer looks like in Turin, just imagine the foliage in the Fall!
