TOO Fast

Mauro Pagliai

Aerial cinematographer Mauro Pagliai says he has an obsession with time that leads him to create videos like this - lucky us! Shot entirely on a DJI Mavic 2 drone (other than the intro and closing shots of his pup, Logan) the Drone Video Award winner gives a master class in Waypoint flying and hyper-lapses. The magnificent sunsets and sunrises of the countryside of Central Italy, busy streets of Rome surrounding the Coliseum, and more make this Drone Video of the Week Winner quite the treat.

Through the lens of a drone he moves through narrow passageways in the wilderness and the iconic hilltop village of Calcata that sits in the middle of the landscape.  He was able to capture the distinct character of the quaint Italian town, secret waterfalls, and antique landmarks in this drone footage.  Lazio occupies the center of Italy's western coast and includes the city of Rome.

Contributor Zippomaker brings us this beautifully captioned aerial tour of the castles of the Lazio region of Central Italy.  This large and very historic region is situated on Italy's west coast, a bit south of Rome. The region's proximity to Rome made its mountain passes highly desirable locations for castles and fortresses.

Wounded Beauty - La Bellezza Ferita


The region of Umbria in Central Italy was devastated by a massive earthquake in 2016.  The quake, which registered a 6.6 on the Richter Scale, killed nearly 250 people.  It also wrought massive devastation on some of Italy's greatest cultural treasurers.  In this drone video, contributor Lorenzo shows us magnificent pre-earthquake footage of the abbeys and churches of Valle Castoriana and Valnerina, many of which were severely demaged by the earthquakes and have yet to be fully restored.

The subject of this Drone Video Award winning video by top contributor and pilot BeemFlights is the great Colosseum of Rome.  It was completed in 80 AD, having been largely financed with Roman plunder from the capture of the Second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.  The Colosseum seated up to 50k spectactors and was the largest of its kind in the world.  Situated adjacent to the Roman Forum on land that had been burned in the Great Rome Fire of 64 AD, it's one of the most-visited sites in the Eternal City.

Fabel Movie Maker used both the DJI Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro drones to create this spectacular tour of his native Umbria region in Central Italy.  Sitting in the center of the "Boot" of Italy, Umbria is a largely rural region.  Landlocked, its main physical feature is the Appenines, a chain of Mountains which run down the "spine" of Italy.  It's also home to numerous lakes and rivers.  While it has few large cities, it features many small towns and villages, some of which date to the Antiquity.

Ancient Monterano


Contributor Zippomaker created this beautiful drone video of Monterano, an ancient village just outside of Rome, Italy.  Monterano was an Etruscan village, part of the Etruscan Empire which corresponded roughly to modern day Tuscany but extended further south into what is now Lazio (the region which surrounds Rome in the west-central part of the country).  The once-mighty Etruscan civilization eventually came under the domination of Rome by about the 4th century BC when the city on the Tiber River was still a republic.

The region of Lazio in Central Italy is probably best known as the home of the Eternal City of Rome, but much of it is rural.  Covering most of west-central Italy, the landscape here transitions from the coast to a broad plain to the foothills of the Appenine Mountains as one moves from west to east.  This drone video by top contributor druno beautifully captures the varied landscapes of the region; particularly beautiful is the rather dramatic  way in which the plains give way to the mountains.

Top contributor Druno, who was a winner at the second annual Drone Video Awards, used a DJI Mavic Pro to create this stunning continuous shot of a hilltop town in the mountains of Lazio, Italy.  The coloring of the town's buildings, set against the misty green hills of the region, is simply spectacular.  While the Lazio region is home to Rome and is the second most populous of Italy's 19 regions, much of it is rural and semi-rural and has a landscape which somewhat resembles that of neighboring Tuscany.

Lazio is the main region of west-central Italy and the country's second-most populous  However, roughly 70% of its population of a bit under 6 million lives in Metropolitan Rome; its four provinces outside of Rome are among the country's most rural.  Running east and southeast of Rome, the landscape is characterized by rolling hills which run into the foothills of the Appenines.  It's glorious country any time of year but especially in the Fall, as you'll see from this beautiful drone video by Fabel Movie Maker.

But for the fact that it was filmed with a 21st century piece of technology, this stunning scene from Central Italy could have taken place hundreds of years ago.  AirVuz contributor and pilot Why Not Channel used a drone to film a group of wild horses atop a small mountain in Umbria, a region which covers the geographic center of the country, northeast of Rome.  One of Italy's most rural regions, Umbria is crossed north to south by the Appenine Mountains, which form the region's naturaly boundary with Marche to its east.

The first is Assisi, an ancient city which was the birthplace of St. Francis and the site of the founding of the Franciscan religious order in the early 13th century.  The second city is Gubbio, which is even older - remains dating to the Bronze Age have been found here.  Lying in the foothills of the Appenine Mountains, Gubbio was known as one of the main centers of pottery during the Renaissance.
