Lux Alibi 07 - Corviano: Oracle and Secret Path

We are in Corviano, a beautiful and mostly unknown place, to film two scenes: the "Oracle" and "Entering the underworld".
Corviano is a sort of little rocky tableland, precipitous on the valley below with rock walls. Before the Roman civilization here existed a little village in which the houses were digged in the rock. Each house had an entrance on the flat top of the tableland, with stairs leading underground, where there were some rooms opened directly on the cliff face.
If some ennemies arrrived, people could seal the main entrance end be safe. But, on the same time, they weren't blocked inside: with a rope they could absail down the clif.
For the Oracle cave, we are going to use one of this houses. Then we are heading in the valley below where there is a strange, but natural, vertical split in the rock of the tableland, that is perfect for entering the underworld
