Boulder nearly wipes out Italian farmhouse

ROME, Jan 31 AP - A huge boulder unleashed by a landslide in northern Italy narrowly missed a farmhouse, but destroyed a barn and came to a stop in vineyards.

A second boulder stopped just a metre behind the traditional stone farmhouse in the rocky region of Alto-Adige.

The surreal sight was captured in a series of dramatic photographs.

Nobody was injured in the tumble from mountains overlooking the village of Ronchi di Termeno.

Some other boulders from the January 21 landslide blocked roads.
