Magic Mountain’s Questionnaire

Your current state of Altitude?

I’ve been living in Cels, 1000Mt altitude, for 8 years.

Your current state of mind?

Humility, being open to learn. It’s a never ending need.

Your favourite way to spend time in the mountains?

I spend most of the time in the woods, collecting wild herbs, exploring remote areas and solo climbing. Besides exploring the wastelands, carving takes most of my time. I love to bivouac, it’s my way to find contact with the space around me and, always respecting my surroundings, to expand what in the old days might have been called “pioneering” knowledge. When the spare time and my body allow me to, I like to mark new climbing walls: always solo, during the last years I opened a few new ones in Cels. Nothing extreme, the rock requires attention, respecting the clean climbing ethic.


 

A mountain object that inspires you?

Knife and hatchet. The two tools that I daily use and transports me to another era.

Your favorite view from above?

A secret spot from Rocciamelone…

Do you believe in Magic?

I don’t know if I do, but I do respect the energy that comes from some specific spaces. Around here there are a few and when I visit them I must admit that I hear something, I don’t know how to call it…


Would you share a dream with us?

I don’t have a particular dream, I’ve always tried to reach what fascinated me the most and more or less I’m making it. If I have to say one, it would be exploring the wildness of North Europe, maybe Finland.

Where do you feel at home? 

In the woods, better alone

Your preferred mountain food?

Without a doubt, potatoes, in any form they come
