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.

August 2018 - 10 days travelling around Marche and Umbria regions in Italy


Contributor FredricoC spent ten days traveling through the Umbria and Marche regions of Central Italy with a DJI Mavic Air drone, creating this beautiful video to memorialize the trip.  Umbria is close to the geographic center of the country.  Situated to the northeast Rome's it's home to some of Italy's greatest cultural treasures.  Marche lies immediately to the east of Umbria.  Its landscape transitions from the stunning Appenine Mountains in the center to the Adriatic sea on its eastern side.

Contributor druno discovered some of the unseen beauties in his homeland of Lazio, a region of central Italy. 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.  

Aerial Tour of Umbria


Umbria: Cinematic Drone Footage

Fabel Movi...

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.

Castles and Fortresses of Lazio


Middleages Project


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. Highlights of the video include bird's eye views of Castello Cantelmo Rocca Guidonesca  Ferento, Civita Bagnoregio, Vulci, Chiesa Santa Martiri, Contrada de Torchi, and more. 

Etruscan City in Lazio


Civita di Bagnoregio - Viterbo Italy


Contributor Seppiolone created this beautiful drone video of the Etruscan city Civita di Bagnoregio in Central Italy.  It's situated in Viterbo, one of the provinces which makes up the official Lazio region to the north of Rome.  The magnificent and extremely well-preserved town is built on a hilltop plateau, but is vulnerable to collapse due to soil erosion.  It dates to 2500 BC, over two millennia before the establishment of the Roman Republic.  Depending on the time of year, the town has between 10 and 100 residents.  

Monterano: Etruscan Village


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.

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.

Marino: Ancient Town in Lazio

Contributor Mauro Pagliai skillfully combined drone and ground camera footage to create this video of Marino, a town in the southern part of Italy's Lazio region.  It's in the Alban Hills, just a short distance from the regional (and national) capital, Rome.  Marino has been settled since the Antiquity, and played a part in various struggles which occurred in the region throughout the Middle Ages.  It's known for its fine wine and its Grape Festival, an annual celebration which dates to 1924.

Marche: Gradara Castle

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.      

Castelluccio in Perugia, Umbria

Italy's Appenine Mountains isn't a single chain but actually a series of three chains which run down the "boot" of Italy, in most places forming the boundaries between different historical regions.  In this drone video, you'll get an aerial view of some spectacular Appenine landscapes around the town of Castelluccio.  It's located in the far southeastern corner of the province of Perugia, the larger of the two provinces of Umbria; the Emilia-Romagna region lies to the east and Marche to the southeast.
