Vita di guida

The mountain guides of Valtournenche replace in one day the fixed hemp ropes of the Matterhorn overcoming a sudden storm. The film starts with the characteristic ceremony of the blessing of the ropes in the village square and then follows the works to bring the ropes up to the summit of the mountain by the Italian side. The figure of Antonio Carrel, who first climbed the mountain from the Italian side, is reminiscent. Severino Casara also filmed the replacement of the fixed ropes in the Dent du Geant in his 'Han legato il Gigante' (1954).
