“Living with the Bears” is a journey through the history of the relationship between men and bears in Trentino, the northernmost region in Italy. Different characters create a puzzle of visions that crosses prehistory, history, the struggle for salvation, the great repopulation project and the present.

The documentary leaves us with many questions, without ignoring the reality: the coexistence of bears and humans creates conflicts that cannot be eliminated and requires a strong commitment from everyone. A shared effort to ensure the permanence of large carnivores on our territory in the long term.
