Biella Creative City on the roof of Europe

17/09/2019 - Updates

The instructors of the national school Guido Machetto of the section of the Italian Alpine Club of Biella, Gianluca Cavalli and Luca Pecoraro, reached 4,810 meters on the summit of Mont Blanc with the banner that supports Biella’s candidacy to join the network of UNESCO Creative Cities.

The two climbers climbed the “roof of Europe” in one day, Saturday, September 14, 2019.

For Cavalli, an academic at the CAI, it was a training session in preparation for the Antarctic expedition, scheduled for January 2020: “It will be a Biella expedition – says the mountaineer – because it is supported by the CAI Biella, by institutions and by local companies as Tintoria 2000 and Wool mill Botto Giuseppe“. The expedition will also be an opportunity to test the fabrics of Lanificio Botto in extreme conditions: “This is nothing but a new demonstration of how much we Biellesi and our social” fabric”have in their creativity a characteristic that distinguishes us” concludes Cavalli.
