Via Alpina – Beyond the Trail

Audio: ,


An adventure, an enquiry, an investigation, a quest? Matthieu, mountain leader, continues his trekking experience with the Via Alpina, an 8 countries-crossing of the Alps from Trieste to Monaco. One thing in mind: What influence does hiking in the mountains have on us? Between Matthieu’s personal journey and the testimonials of hikers met on the way, a whole new world is unveiled. Far from being just an outdoor activity in a dream-like scenery, trekking become an awareness tool driving us to rethink our way of living. Honorable Mention – Memorial Maria Luisa 2019.
