Two massive boulders have ripped through a picturesque northern Italian village after becoming dislodged by a landslide.

One huge rock destroyed a barn and narrowly missed a farm house in Ronci Termeno, South Tyrol, after coming to a halt in a vineyard just a few feet away from the property.

A second giant boulder that came loose during the landslide stopped behind the house. The walls of the rustic 300-year-old farm house near Bolzano completely crumbled to dust and the roof was left in splinters.

The family living at the property was unharmed in the incident but were forced to evacuate their home.

In addition to the damage caused to the buildings, the boulders also destroyed a car that was parked nearby and damaged a tractor.

Geologists are surveying the site of the damage for any potential risks.

A Facebook appeal page has been set up to collect donations for the residents of the home that was crushed by the boulder. The owners said they have lost farming equipment in addition to the destruction to their property.
