This time it will be the Museomontagna of Turin to tell the public about the project On the Trail of the Glaciers. The exhibition, organized as part of Ferrino’s 150th Anniversary celebrations, recounts through a selection of photographic comparisons and backstage images the first five expeditions of the project, held in the Karakorum, Caucasus, Alaska, Andes and Himalayas mountain ranges. It also offers a preview of an overview of the Lys glacier on Monte Rosa in the summer of 2019.
To complete the exhibition, on display until June 7, the interactive video installation entitled “On the journey through time“, created by video artist Paolo Scoppola, which allows visitors to interact with ancient and modern images.
“I’m honored – says Fabiano Ventura, director of the project – to see this work of ours exhibited at the National Mountain Museum, historical seat of the Italian Alpine Club, where often the historical research for our expeditions started. Thanks to this collaboration, we will have the opportunity to reach a part of the audience, deeply connected to these territories and everything they communicate. For this reason I would also like to express my special thanks to the Ferrino company that, in celebrating such an important birthday, has chosen to support this initiative and once again strengthen its link with the mountains“.
The opening event, initially scheduled for March 11, has been postponed to a date to be set.
