Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation

01 April 2021 - 30 August 2024

The collaboration between the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) and the non-profit association Macromicro (with the editorial consultancy of The Planet Side) resulted in the travelling exhibition “Italian Routes. Mountains, mountaineering, climate change”.

The aim of the project is to communicate to an international audience the great Italian tradition linked to mountain culture and mountaineering as a means of getting to know the mountain territory, the values of which this environment is the bearer, the importance of environmental awareness in accessing natural environments and the attention that Italy pays to defending ecosystems.

The exhibition, which will travel from April 2021 to August 2024, has already been present at prestigious venues in Vietnam, South Korea, Israel, Switzerland, Georgia, Albania, Kosovo, Norway, Argentina and Chile and will return to Europe in the coming months and exhibited in Andorra.

Forte di Bard

17 June 2022 - 18 November 2022

The famous museum in the Aosta Valley, in collaboration with The Planet Side, had host the first full version of the exhibition on the overall results of the project On the Trail of the Glaciers, titled “Earth’s Memory – Glaciers, Witnesses of the Climate Crisis”.

The exhibition, which has received UNESCO patronage, displayed 90 large-format, high-quality photographic comparisons from the six international expeditions carried out between 2009 and 2021 in the Karakorum, Caucasus, Alaska, Andes, Himalayas and Alps mountain ranges.

In addition to the photographic comparisons, there were immersive blow-ups, presentations of scientific data produced by the ESA (European Space Agency) using data visualisation tools, videos of the expeditions with interviews with the researchers and protagonists of the project, an interactive video installation entitled Walking Through Time by video media artist Paolo Scoppola.

Klima Arena

30 October 2021 - 29 May 2022

The collaboration between Klima Arena and The Planet Side has led to the creation of the museum itinerary that will see the exhibition On the Trails of the Glaciers on display until May 2022 in the spaces of the innovative cultural centre of Sinsheim (Germany), an avant-garde structure dedicated to the theme of climate change.

Triennale of Milan

05 September 2021 - 17 October 2021

Thanks to the support of Fondazione Cariplo and the collaboration between the non-profit association Macromicro and The Planet Side, the exhibition Sulle tracce dei ghiacciai (On the Trails of the Glaciers) was hosted by the prestigious venue of the Triennale of Milan. The exhibition – through the photographs of Fabiano Ventura, president of the Macromicro Association and creator of the project – tells the story of how glaciers and landscapes are being transformed by climate change. The exhibition presents a selection of the best photographic comparisons made as part of the project: historical photographs rigorously compared with modern ones. The protagonists are the world’s most important glaciers, considered by the international scientific community to be among the most valuable and reliable indicators of the climate changes taking place on our planet.
