MONTANUS – TRAMONTANA
If there was ever an edit to inspire you to get out and battle the elements, explore somewhere new, ride a fat bike, light fires and strap an axe to your forks, this is the one!
Tramontana [tramonˈtaːna] it’s a cold and dry wind blowing from the north Europe towards Italy, carrying snow and frigid temperature. In ancient times the Latin word trānsmontānus (trāns- + montānus) indicated what was beyond the mountains, unknown, barbaric and dangerous. “Tramontana” is a journey through human ancestral fears and primordial virtues of the fire, the natural element that, since the dawn of time, allowed it to defeat the dark, the cold, the isolation and the wild beasts. A tribute to the human wild side that gets lost in the origins of our story.
Location: Gran Sasso plateau, Abruzzo, Italy.
