I was born and I live in northeast Italy, in the area of the Dolomites, recently proclaimed world heritage of humanity and included in the UNESCO list. These beautiful mountains are the frame of my days: sunrises, sunsets, nights. Nothing in the world compares to a fiery sunset from the top of a peak: the rocks soak up all shades of yellow, red and magenta. This is a show that has no price tag.
It only takes a little sacrifice, because the difficulties are amplified by the darkness during the descent to the valley at night. The sky full of stars will guide you ... but most of the time you will keep looking upwards to admire it.
Then comes dawn, the time when the peaks awaken from the darkness. First with distinctive black silhouettes drawn in the sky, then slowly showing their innumerable details, caressed by light pastel of a new day. This is usually the coldest time of the night, but the emotions are always great and you forget the body, leaving space for the spirit. Unfortunately thousand words are not enough to describe what you will go through on a journey through the mountains.
In 1872 Amelia B. Edwards made a trip to the Dolomites and in her book "Untrodden Peaks and Unfrequented Valleys" she wrote: "...No mere description can convey to even the most apprehensive reader, any correct impression of their outline, their look of intense energy, of upwardness, of bristling, irresistible force.”
