Ragni di Lecco, 70 years of history and alpinism in a film
The trailer of Ragni, the new film by Filippo Salvioni that celebrates 70 years of extraordinary climbing and mountaineering by the Italian mountaineering club Ragni della Grignetta, known to all as the Ragni di Lecco.
A seven-legged spider. This is the curious coat of arms which, ever since 1946, adorns the left arm of the distinctive red sweater of the Ragni, the Lecco-based Ragni della Grignetta mountaineering club that has written important chapters in the history of mountaineering, both in Italy and worldwide. To celebrate the first 70 years of incessant activity there’s now a new film - called Ragni and directed by Filippo Salvioni - that through the use of archive footage, previously unseen images and interviews retraces seven decades of exploration at the very limits of what is humanly possible up in the mountains. Here's the trailer of the film.
