Pour le Mistral

Trasfoco: The wind

Famous for its effect on Vincent van Gogh and his paintings, the Mistral is an intense wind that normally blows at around 100 kilometres per hour, reaching up to 140 at moments of greatest intensity. Caused by an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Genoa, it is a strong cold northwesterly wind that blows into the Gulf of Lion in France, the country where it is especially felt. In the areas where it blows the strongest, its effects can be seen in many different elements, from the erosion of the landscape to farming methods. The communities who feel its effects try to adapt to its powerful strength, often without success.
