Bonatti, Je t’aime

Bonatti, Je t’aime

Climber, explorer, adventurer, journalist, Walter Bonatti has been a superhero of its time.
I am not an alpinist, nor an explorer.
I fell in love with Bonatti as a total novice, in love with the myth, the man of the impossible missions.
He is the antithesis of all that I am; and the more I dug into his life, the more I got captivated by his vision, his curiosity, imagination, and sense of beauty.
Bonatti was a scrupolous archivist of his materials: photos, journals, ropes, climbing boots… A trace of time, left in a precise order.
In between the traces left by the handsome man I will never know, I let myself be guided in the telling of a story, in words and dance.
