The wish to know and explore the veins of our mountains has always been very strong for me, the Apaune Alps, which represent the most famous phenomenon in Italy, have given me the opportunity to develop myself technically in this discipline.

Exploring the natural cavities made from narrow meanders and above all holes, (in our area they are excavated in marble and therefore almost exclusively vertical), very different from those in the old mines, in caves our main aim is to learn, to travel and admire the hypogeum spaces which water has excavated millions of years ago, only using a hammer to plant nails.
