The first appointment is on Wednesday 25 October on the theme “The Duality of the Mountain” to learn how the mountain is a contradictory place, generating attraction and repulsion, suggesting the grotesque and the sublime. As well as the mountainous landscapes, which evoke both aesthetic charm and disturbing charm. In this alternation of feelings, the mountain becomes a metaphor for life.

On December 6th it will be the turn of the encounter from the Apennines to the Alps, renewal of the mountains, renewal of the country.

On February 19, Elisa Palazzi and Sarah Segantin – respectively professor of climate physics at the University of Turin, Geo-Rai3 correspondent, and expert on climate justice – will explain to us how the mountain is the real test of climate change that could be irreversible. On March 22, there will be a space on the theme of mountain industry where we will discover how the highlands are also places where important industrial activities are created. Lorenzo Deladio (CEO of La Sportiva), Giorgio Didola (professor at the University of Trento) spoke about it, and in a video interview, Roberto Cimillo, former CEO of Luxottica, spoke about it.
