Itaca nel Sole is the story of Gian Piero Motti. Important mountain climber to world level, Gian Piero Motti it became a generational myth because understood before everybody that the mountaineering was not only what all they saw, they told or they practised: going down over the rough surface could be discovered as it was an allegory of the world and the life, what he defined the "Nuovo Mattino”.
Itaca nel Sole is the history of an adventure: that to go down for then going up again, or rather the essence of the "Nuovo Mattino."
Motti tries to return to a depth humanism of the mountain, but in the night among on June 21 and on June 22, to the 36 year-old age, it kills him.

Gian Piero Motti  has remained in the heart of many. A revolutionary, and it was indeed it in the depth. Even if this opposed with his displayed middle class, his behavior and his intellectualism.
Our intention is to tell for images this dimension of his and to not only explore it in alpine circle but pushing our look toward its intuitions that went over the historical search and that they painted new panoramas, almost making him/it become a sort of prophet, a man able to understand what would be happened in the years to come.
To almost seventy years from the birth, Gian Piero Motti  is a character that doesn't finish lifting doubts and it is for this that we have decided to tell him.
