Con le spalle nel vuoto

Storia di una donna - Storia di un'alpinista

There are women who have challenged the prejudices and social conformism of their day to heed the irresistible call of journey and adventure. Italian Mary Varale (1895–1963) found her own personal place in the world and defended it with all her might. In an Italy oppressed by Fascism and social conformism, a dark period that portrayed women solely as brides and prolific mothers, Mary climbed 217 mountains between 1924 and 1935, in teams or on her own; almost all of her climbs were first ascents by a woman. More than half a century later, her life, mountaineering achievements and the radical choices against the sporting institutions of the day are as provocative as ever.
