“…The Treviso Pre-Alps have been my second home for a long time. I have traveled every valley, every peak, meeting people who have filled me with knowledge over the many years spent I spent backpacking. I loved them, repeatedly told their story thinking that I had finished my work as a storyteller of the mountain. However, I realized that I had not discovered everything there was to discover.”
