On his eightieth birthday, Émile Burnat, in his library where he keeps the books and herbarium the result of many years study and collection, relives the most exciting moments of his extraordinary human and scientific experience that look place mostly around the Marguareis massif. Many years later a film. And not a traditional documentary, has been made of Burnat’s life. It holds messages depicting the history and importance of one of the most significant Piedmont nature areas. The protection of this area, begun centuries ago by the Certosini Order, is today entrusted to the Nature Parks of the Piedmont Region.
