An extraordinary photographic journey
An epic photographic journey
The Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe; the Matterhorn, one of the most famous mountains in the world; the Gran Paradiso National Park, the oldest in Italy; countless tops And glaciers; alpine pastures which in the flowering season are filled with a thousand colors; immense forests that in autumn take on the colors of red and gold; and then Roman traces, castles, trendy locations and others out of time… all of this is found in Valle d'Aosta, a region without rivals for the grandeur of the mountain scenery. In this book, the author will accompany you in 50 places in the region, where to leave the daily routine, to find the way to harmony and beauty and that special feeling of fullness that certain places know how to arouse in the human soul.
"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calling you like wild geese, harsh and exciting - announcing your place in the family of things again and again."
Davide Cenadelli, with a degree in physics and a research doctor in the history of astronomy, he works at the Astronomical Observatory of the Autonomous Region of the Aosta Valley, where he deals with research and scientific dissemination. Study the stars and their planets, the so-called exoplanets. But he is also very interested in this planet. He loves everything that is colorful, such as stars, nebulae, landscapes and modern painting. His passion for modern painting led him to photography, of which he loves chromatic, formal and existential aspects more than documentary and descriptive ones. He is an incurable romantic. If you meet him in the mountains, by the sea or under a starry sky, it is likely that he seems to be staring at a point in the void. He is not dazed: he is just immersing himself in that feeling of existential fullness that certain places can arouse. You can disturb it, it is not dangerous. The only risk is that you try to make you participate in this sensation too and maybe, if you are a sporty type (he is not) you prefer to do nothing but stare for a long time at a peak, a cloud, a tree or a star.
