Angelo Dibona did not usually talk much about himself. A question of style, we would say, “Dibona’s style”, of course. Other people have written and talked about him: his clients and fellow-climbers, some of them famous and distinguished including Belgian royaltyand the great Guido Mayer who wrote: “Dibona is the best climber in the world”. Fifty years after his death, through the accounts of Lino Lacedelli, Carlo Gandini and Enrico Lacedelli and by looking at some ascents freed by Dibona in the Dolomites and in Delfinato, this film aims to be a tribute to a unique protagonist of mountaineering in the first half of the 20th century.
