When Turin native Francesco Ravelli (1885-1985) took his first steps at high altitudes with his brothers between the eighteen and nineteen hundreds, classical mountain climbing was still writing its own history. The quality of his achievements is such that his name is always significant, as is the originality of his photographs, which were regularly published in Italian Alpine Club magazines. Their excellence is reflected in the recognition and prizes they received.
