At an altitude of 2000 meters, at the heart of the Italian Alps, where making a phone call means a 10-minute drive on unpaved roads; here, in the alpine pastures of these mountains, sisters Ylenia and Jessica passed the summers of their youth. 22 and 25 years respectively after completing their education, Ylenia and Jessica decided to return to their roots, to be their true selves, and to become herders. Together with their father, Ylenia and Jessica spend 4 months of the year in this alpine zone, from July to October – or until the first snowfall. “Horele” in the local dialect means “sisters”, but for Ylenia and Jessica, horele has become a professional title; always together, always smiling, even when they are forced to walk for hours in the rain to search for a cow or goat gone astray. Their bond with one another is as unique as their connection to nature.
