Solo in volo
Italy / 2018 / 31' / World premiere
Luigi Bombardieri died in 1957 in an attempt to experiment with the use of helicopters for mountain rescue. Today, Maurizio Folini, a mountain guide, becomes a helicopter pilot and from Bernina to Nepal brings the idea of Bombardieri, managing to rescue mountaineers at record levels and helping the civil population after the earthquake of 2015. Maurizio continues his work of teaching the heli-rescue techniques for future pilots who will operate on the Himalayas, following the values of teaching so dear to Bombardieri.
