L'ULTIMA VIA DI RICCARDO BEE
The introspective story of the great climber from Belluno. Riccardo Bee was one of the strongest rock climbers of the mid-twentieth century, but his mountaineering legacy is partly shrouded in mystery. Forty years after his death, this work aims to capture the legacy of a husband, a father, a friend forced by a sort of spell to seek an ever deeper confrontation with himself.
