Matteo - UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide

My hometown is Trento, the capital of Trentino: a beautiful mountain land that on geographical maps resembles a butterfly with its wings spread to the east and west and the Adige Valley as a backbone. In September 2013, at the age of 25, I obtained the professional qualification of Aspiring Alpine Guide of Trentino, a real dream that I cherished since I was a child.

Dolomites

Great Dolomite walls that have made the history of mountaineering.

The site of the Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3,000 meters and cover 141,903 ha. It features some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes anywhere, with vertical walls, sheer cliffs and a high density of narrow, deep and long valleys. A serial property of nine areas that present a diversity of spectacular landscapes of international significance for geomorphology marked by steeples, pinnacles and rock walls, the site also contains glacial landforms and karst systems.
