The Club 4000 in the CAI – National Geographic volume

The twelfth release of the beautiful series "The enchanted mountains" (a CAI - National Geographic co-production) is, as the title reports, completely dedicated to the four thousand meter peaks. Inside the volume, 160 pages richly illustrated by splendid images, about twenty essays and contributions signed by top authors tell us, from various points of view (not only mountaineering but also anthropological, naturalistic, geological, historical and building) the world of high altitude. Among others, a prominent space is entirely reserved for us! In fact, Anna Girardi dedicates a portrait to us in the text entitled Il club delle cime segrete, giving voice to Daniela Formica and Luca Calzone (who took over the presidency of the Club), as well as to the mountain guide and our finisher member Franz Nicolini.

The editorial series "Le montagne incantate" was conceived to promote the CAI Italy way path. The first nine outings are dedicated to it, divided by geographical areas along the entire Alpine and Apennine arc, starting from the Carso and ending in Sicily and Sardinia. The next releases (there will be 15 in all) have expanded to the mountains of the world: from the 8000m peaks to Patagonia, from Africa to Alaska.

You can buy the volume on the Quattromila in April and early May at newsstands at a discounted price of 10 euros (instead of 12.90) by presenting the coupon found in the CAI monthly magazine "Montagne 360".


The new website is 2 months old! What do you think about?

It seems yesterday but 2 months have already passed!

In addition to celebrating, what better opportunity to analyze together what has been done?

We have prepared a questionnaire that will allow us, with your help, to understand the things that work and those that need to be improved.

The questionnaire can be completed by both members and not-members, even anonymously if you prefer.  Compilation time is approximately 2 minutes.


In memory of Felice Béchon

Attention: in compliance with the provisions of the government decree for the protection of health, the evening is postponed to a date to define.

Skiing in the Gran Paradiso Group

We notice to the members this interesting article entitled "In skiing in the Gran Paradiso Group", written by Carlo Crovella and recently published in "Monti e Valli" (online magazine of CAI Torino). The article contains a lot of information that derives from detailed orographic and even historical analyzes, which makes its reading interesting for all 4000 fans.
