Wandering through these mountains as a boy , then really poorly known to the multitude , and that only the last thirty years have seen a certain "awakening" thanks to the construction of bivouacs and refuges , I learned to appreciate the corners "secluded" and unusual views that they can offer. These places are not aimed at the Mass , but still maintain a high degree of privacy and intimacy , so as to be transmitted from Matter Man who is able to appreciate the nuances. It is not the only place aimed at "Elects" in Valley of Aosta (in my wandering in the mountains almost half a century I have known several others) but has the peculiarity that in two major population centers, just above their head or, if you want, immediately behind, as the City of Aosta and the District of Cogne get up and stretch mountains worthy of the legendary Klondike in the collective imagination. Pheraps, and maybe more, the emotional factor on my part be ascribed to the same bind to My First Youth. But the Second, the Third and, now, the Fourth . An unbreakable bond in time, so as to create more Emotions with a return back in Time. The possibility of abstraction , if not in Space, at least in this. Indeed it is with some surprise when we walked up the Points, with "emilius", Red of th'Emilius from Arbolle's Hill for the Northeast Ridge observe when getting off a group of C.A.I. Aosta along the same , where once you did not see anyone. In fact we had to postpone the start of the climb up to their arrival in order, to not take a stone on his head. Queuing at Punta Rossa Emilius's. Incredible! It was the first day of August 2004 and we knew it was over a Poem. We crossed the three peaks and quietly got out of the Pass of Valaisan. Arriving at the Refuge Arbolle realized that times had changed there too. Other than miserable hut by Cetèun . Sadly we ascended to the Chamolé to return to Pila, where the great Resort we awoke from the Dream of all. Imagine Emilio we went skiing in the Fifties , walk from Aosta and one endless descent from Point of Couiss 2663 metres, through the Leyzetta Natural Ski Run in the woods , and when any of them, that he could not go, asking: "But how many people there? ... Oh, a Row more than twenty people!" .
Incidentally , and rightly so, are the Mountains of All ...

Girovagando sin da ragazzo per queste montagne, allora veramente scarsamente conosciute alla moltitudine e che soltanto nell'ultimo Trentennio han registrato un certo qual "risveglio" grazie soprattutto alla costruzione di bivacchi e rifugi, ho imparato ad apprezzarne gli angoli "appartati" e le vedute inconsuete ch'esse san offrire. Questi non sono posti rivolti alla Massa, bensì mantengon ancora un elevato grado di riservatezza ed d'intimità, tal da esser trasmesso dalla Materia all'Uomo che é capace di apprezzarne le sfumature. Non é l'unico posto rivolto ad "Eletti" in Valle d'Aosta (nel mio vagabondar per monti in quasi mezzo Secolo n'ho conosciuti diversi altri) ma presenta le peculiarità che tra due grandi centri abitati, subito sopra la loro testa o, se volete, immediatamente alle spalle, come la Città di Aosta ed il Comprensorio di Cogne si alzano e si estendono montagne degne del leggendario Klondike nell'immaginario collettivo. Forse, e forse maggiormente, il fattore affettivo da parte mia va ascritto che le stesse si legano alla mia Prima Giovinezza. Ma anche alla Seconda, alla Terza ed, ora, alla Quarta. Un legame indissolubile nel Tempo, tal da creare sempre Emozioni con un ritorno all'indietro nel Tempo. La possibilità di astrazione, se non nello Spazio, almeno in questo. Anzi é con un certo stupore quando con "emilius" abbiam salito le Punte Rossa dell'Emilius dal Col d'Arbolle per la Cresta Nordest osservare nello scendere una comitiva del C.A.I. d'Aosta lungo la medesima, ove una volta non vedevi mai anima viva. Anzi dovemmo rimandare l'inizio della salita fin al lor arrivo, onde non prendere qualche pietra in testa. Far la coda alla Punta Rossa dell'Emilius. Incredibile! Era il primo giorno d'Agosto del 2004 e capimmo ch'era finita una Poesia. Attraversammo le tre cime e silenziosamente scendemmo dal Pas du Valaisan. Arrivando al Rifugio di Arbolle comprendemmo ch'anche lì i tempi eran cambiati. Altro che misera baita del Cetèun. Mestamente risalimmo al Colle di Chamolé per rientrare a Pila, dove il grande Resort ci risvegliò del tutto dal Sogno. Immaginate l'Emilio che ci'andava a sciare negli Anni Cinquanta, a piedi da Aosta e con un'unica interminabile discesa dalla Punta del Couiss a 2663 metri, tramite la Pista Nature di Sci della Leyzetta attravers'al bosco, e quando qualcun di lor, che non aveva potuto andare, chiedeva: "Ma quanta gente c'era? ... Oh, un Casino più di venti persone!".
Daltronde, e giustamente, le Montagne son di Tutti ...
