While walking from village to village, you can also hear the echo of Tarines (cattle in the pasture of Tarentaise, used in France today to produce the cheese with a distinct flavor that comes from the high alpine villages of the Tarentaise valley), or locate the shaping of the landscape by obstinate mountain farmers, peasants became workers in the twentieth century.
