Spaghetti Archeologists

In Spain the Spaghetti western is still alive underground: treasures of cinema are hidden in the desert of Almería

Half a century later, fans of this film genre have become a kind of archaeologist unearthing the treasures of this film genre that are still buried in the desert of Almeria.

It is the desert of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach; the desert of Sergio Leone, the desert of Almeria. Half a century after the filming of 'The Good, the Bad and and the Ugly', it is still possible to recognize the places where the moive was filmed.

They are iconic places where treasures can be found. A group of fans of the spaghetti western turned into improvised archaeologists and have unearthed objects from those films.

In 'Duck You Sucker', Leone built a bridge that he then dynamited in a memorable sequence of the film. From that bridge, today, there is still left an arch and now also, the remains of a car that has been discovered buried in the sand.
