Synopsis: Thanks to the historical re-enactment, we will follow the pioneers of 1869 during their first ascent to the summit and again during the opening of new and increasingly difficult routes in the following decades. It will be discovered how these adventurers realized what seemed impossible with simple means and equipment of the time. Reinhold Messner, the most famous climber and mountaineer of our time, tells this epic story.
