Two years ago, Walter Bonatti, the greatest of all, left us. In our memories he will forever be remembered as a man of integrity, with himself and with others, refusing any compromise that did not reflect his own way and respect for the mountain.
He also left us some pages of alpine literature. "Le mie montagne", published by Zanichelli in 1961, which was later supplemented and re-released under the title "Montagne di una vita" by Baldini, Castoldi, Dalai Editorre in 1995, is certainly the book that inspired so many of us. Tonight in Trento, his companion Rossana Podesta, will premiere the film that is dedicated to him, "W di Walter".
We will never forget you, Walter!
