Approximately 4,000 cubic metres of rock broke off a cliff face and then crashed through a barn and vineyards in Tramin, in Northern Italy, on January 21.

When having a first look at this house (The Freisingerhof, which is owned by the Servite order of the Catholic church), you may think it was too old and had to be destructed by a bulldozer. But when viewing this great drone footage, you discover that this 300-year-old barn was demolished by a giant rock during a landlside that occurred on January 21 2014 in Italy.

But its not everything: this boulder stopped near a second one (from a previous rockslide). Finally, a third boulder rolled toward the main section of the building, stopping mere metres before crashing into it.

But it’s good to know that no one was hurt in the landslide. Residents of the area have been relocated as geologists fear new rockfalls.
