International Mountain Day: Art and science together in Milan to celebrate it

Ludovico Einaudi, Fabiano Ventura and many other distinguished guests gathered at an event organized by the FAO to tell the story of the mountains and their fragility. On the International Mountain Day, established by the UN in 2002 and celebrated on the 11th of December, artists, scientists, mountaineers and experts will once again meet this year to tell the story of the beauty and suffering of mountain territories.

It is the mountains, in fact, on which the wounds left open by climate change and over-exploitation of resources are increasingly evident, that launch a strong cry of pain that cannot remain ignored. So much so that also this year there are many authoritative personalities who come together to collect it.  First of all the pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi, who will dedicate his concert to the mountains, as part of the event promoted and organized in Milan by the Secretariat of the FAO Mountain Partnership.

The concert will be held at the Teatro dal Verme in Milan and will be introduced by a panel open to the public from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., involving leading personalities, who will share their knowledge and experience and offer their vision to implement actions to counteract the effects of climate change on mountain ecosystems and communities.

Among these, Fabiano Ventura, who will discuss with the other guests, illustrating, through the photographic comparisons made during his last 5 expeditions, what has happened in the last 100 years to the most important glaciers of the planet.
