A young journalist returns to the Brentei Refuge, following the trail with a new awareness following an encounter taking place in the past. The tracks she follows are those of Bruno Detassis, a climber who spent his life in the Brenta Dolomites and who she interviewed shortly before his death. During the ascent she glimpses traces of Bruno’s life, loves, daily life and the mountains in the landscape. The words making sense of the itinerary are those of his children, Jalla and Claudio Detassis. Sentiero Bruno presents an unusual family portrait of the “custodian of the Brenta". Everything takes place in the mountains – an existential training ground – in order to face other itineraries, not only in the mountains. This is Bruno Detassis’ legacy.
