Borghi d’ Italia Italian shooting crew spent more then three full days in Magma Geopark to start shooting for the RURITAGE (www.ruritage.eu) promotional movie about our wonderful Geopark, the #GEOfood (www.geofood.no) project and sustainable development with local producers and food providers.
We spent a wonderful time all over the Geopark! The first day we visited Bjerkreim. There we were served good stories and delicious local food at Laksebørsen. We were shown spectacular mountain scenery, sheep and goat, as well as experiencing salmon fishing in one of Norway’s best salmon rivers.The second day we visited Eigerøy lighthouse, tasted the GEOfood at Grand Hotell Egersund, explored Egersund Chocolate Factory and visited the unique Egersund Fayancemuseum . We learned more about how to develop local resources in a sustainable and creative way at Aurora’s Woollocal workshop. The third day we started our tour at Ualand where Ollestad Kjøtt presented pigs as sausages and “free rangers”. Afterwards we got a guided tour at Lund Bygdemuseum and Cultural Bank, we saw their exhibition of pillows and explored their unique apple garden! After a lovely lunch at Cecilies Konditori at Moi we headed towards Flekkefjord. There we got a guided tour among beautiful wooden houses and great street art by Flekkefjord museum, before we had a spectacular workout at Flekkefjordbanen!4th and last day of filming in Magma Geopark became a great, rich and a wee bit wet experience!
