After growing up in Vicenza in an upper-middle-class family and graduating in law in 1940, Toni decided to change his life to pursue his passion for the mountains and turn it into a profession. He settled in Courmayeur, at the foot of Mont Blanc, and contributed to major mountaineering achievements in the Alps and around the world (Andes, Karakoram), alongside several eminent mountaineers of his day, including Walter Bonatti. He became one of the first mountain guides of urban origin in Europe, and probably the first in Italy. He revolutionized the profession, expanding its horizons far beyond traditional boundaries, thanks to a unique combination of urban and mountain cultures. He was one of the founding fathers of IFMGA/UIAGM. Sadly, he left us too soon, at the age of 56, leaving behind regrets about what more he could have achieved.
This is the universal story of a man who followed his passion with vision and determination, making it his life's work and leaving a legacy that still stands the test of time more than 50 years later.
The film is produced by Grivel, and Oliviero Gobbi, Toni's nephew and CEO of Grivel, will be on hand to share a few words with you.
