    Grandes Murailles

    Grandes Murailles

    Guido Monzino (1957)

    La grande muraglia is the toothed, fractured ridge, fractured, bristling with dizzying peaks overlooking valleys plunged into the mist, which from Chateaux des Dames, in the Breuil basin, goes to Monte Rosa through the Matterhorn. In twenty-five days an expedition of mountaineers, with Slodà, Compagnoni, Pèllissier and others, has covered it from one end to the other: always on the edge of the abyss, in an exciting and fantastic swing of rocks and snowfields. The film documents the feat, the difficulties, the bivouacs, the ropes on the sloping glaciers, the homage to the cross of Carrel, the first climber of the Matterhorn.

    Cerro Paine - Vittoria italiana

    Cerro Paine - Vittoria italiana

    Piero Nava (1961)

    During the southern winter of 1957-1958, a great expedition organized and financed by the Italian Guido Monzino arrived at the foot of the Paine Grande. The group of mountaineers was mainly composed of guides from Valle d'Aosta. It was on December 27 that Bich and Carrel's rope, followed by another support formed by Gobbi, Pellissier and Pession, could attempt the final assault. Although the conditions were very bad, the climbers managed to climb the eastern wall and reach the summit. The other objective of this expedition was to climb the famous towers. Faced with the difficulties encountered on the Central and Sur towers, the climbers fell back on the third, the Norte. The summit was reached by Bich and Pession on 16 January 1958. She then took the name Torre Guido Monzino.
