Matteo - UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide

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.

Brenta Dolomites

Great Dolomite walls that have made the history of mountaineering.

Theater of companies that have made the history of mountaineering, the rocks of the Brenta Group can also be explored by expert hikers, thanks to the equipped paths and viaferrata that cross them, respecting their ledges and natural walkways: the famous Via delle Bocchette, an exciting system of aided itineraries, is a coveted trophy for every mountain lover.
