From 22 to 24 September 2023, the Sculptors' Symposium returns to La Collina di Lorenzo, in Castiglione delle Stiviere, in the province of Mantua, where the magic happens.
Some of the most important wood sculptors will enrich this place with original artworks that will remain to delight young and old visitors. Our friend and ambassador Fausto De Stefani will welcome all visitors during the symposium.
Everything will be accompanied by music - including that of the chainsaws and chisels - and the friendliness of the sculptors. Besides celebrating a convivial moment, it will also be an opportunity to raise funds for the Rarahil Memorial School in Kirtipur, Nepal.
Entrance is free of charge.En savoir plus
En s’habillant et en portant des articles de la marque « Montura », l’on fait partie d’un « esprit », d’une communauté dont les membres partagent des valeurs telles que le respect des autres et de l’environnement. Des personnes qui sont en quête permanente de sens, de nouveaux chemins à parcourir, de nouvelles émotions à vivre.
Avec la série web #UnoMontura, nous souhaitons raconter à travers la parole de nos ambassadeurs un peu de notre univers, pour le partager. Ce n’est pas et ne demeurera pas la seule occasion de le faire. Ceux qui nous connaissent déjà y trouveront la confirmation d’une méthode de travail pleine de constance et de passion ; en revanche, nous souhaitons la bienvenue à ceux qui nous découvrirons pour la première fois par le biais de cette série, en les invitant à continuer à nous suivre.
As in the previous editions, Montura, as sponsor of the Festivaletteratura of Mantua (6-10 September 2023), will enrich the programme with an unprecedented exhibition. In the magnificent Atrio degli Arcieri, one of the Palazzo Ducale’s hall, from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., will be open free of charge the exhibition dedicated to the third edition of the international contest War and Revolutionary Stories - WARS, which supports the projects of war photojournalists.
On 10 September, at 12.30 p.m., the prize-giving ceremony will also be held in the presence of the promoters of the initiative, the Atlas of Wars and Conflicts of the World, represented by the President Raffaele Crocco, and the Artistic Director of the award and well-known photojournalist Fabio Bucciarelli. The exhibition is also made possible thanks to the support of the humanitarian organisation Intersos and Unimondo.En savoir plus
"Anima Liquida" (Liquid Soul), a unique work of art by artist Roberto Conte, tell us the fragility of nature and human beings through an uprooted lime tree trunk and a very unique way of communicating this delicate message. Well, the trunk stripped of branches and bark, lying among the linden trees in Piazza Lega Lombarda, will be covered with the emotions that visitors to Mantua's Festivaletteratura will want to communicate. With a new skin made of engraved words, this fallen tree will be able to say new things and give voice to many people. From 6 to 10 September 2023, anyone will be able to suggest their thoughts by writing them on a postcard that can be requested from the staff present.
The work will then become collective and will represent the "liquid soul" of each of us, as well as that of the tree, in an intimate relationship between man and nature. An initiative realised by Montura, a leading Italian company in outdoor clothing and footwear, and Arte Sella, an open-air museum of excellence in Trentino, which presents over 60 installations by internationally renowned artists. It will also be possible to meet the artist Roberto Conte from Friday 8 to Sunday 10, two times a day, at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

23 August marks the start of the 2023 edition of the festival Sounds of the Dolomites, which this year will run until 1 October with 18 concerts in Trentino's most beautiful mountains.
Montura is the main sponsor of this important initiative, in line with our commitment to promoting mountain culture and slow tourism and respect for the environment. We also wanted to give special attention to another theme very dear to us, that of inclusiveness.
Four concerts, in fact, give audiences with hearing disabilities the opportunity to enjoy a unique sensory experience, surrounded by the beauty of the Dolomites. All this thanks to technological backpacks that transfer the low frequency response directly to the listener's body.
The four concerts, which can be enjoyed by audiences with motor disabilities as well as those with hearing impairments, are those of 30 August with Frida Bollani Magoni at Malga Brenta Bassa, 8 September with La Petite Écurie at Sagron Mis, 17 September with Iva Bittova at Passo di Lavazè, and 19 September with Fabrizio Bosso and Julian Oliver Mazzarielo at Villa Welsperg.

Climbers are nearly always monomaniacs with unbridled ambitions.
And we’re no exception.
In 2012, having climbed Colonne d’Ercole on the north-west side of Mount Civetta, we blew on the still-hot embers and decided to attempt a new route on Torre Trieste.
Easy to say, wonderful to dream of, but rather complicated to execute.
We started thinking about it, digesting the idea, studying the wall and the existing routes to work out whether it might be feasible… which was absolutely not a given.
In fact, we have an unhealthy tendency to self-impose limits that complicate things somewhat: not only did we want to open a route on the most stunning and famous tower in the Dolomites; we wanted it to be a route with its own logic, a route that doesn’t interfere with the classics and that respects the history of the wall; a traditional-style route that doesn’t require artificial means, and so on and so on…En savoir plus
Montura ambassador Alessandro De Bertolini has stacking up kilometres on his bike with the "Bike the History" project, which combines slow and sustainable travel with the discovery of the territory and its history.
A true trademark for the Trentino cycle traveller, who just a few years ago crossed the United States from south to north, always with the same philosophy, in search of new ways of living the outdoors. At the beginning of July, he set off from Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia, for a journey that will take him this time to Asia for three months.En savoir plus
Walking on trails of great historical importance, but at the same time enjoying the natural and cultural beauty. This is the thrill one feels on the Sentiero della Pace (Peace Path), a 520 km trail that connects the Tonale Pass to the Marmolada, in Trentino, and links many places and localities along the ideal line of the Italian-Austrian front of the First World War in a single track. The team of Va' Sentiero are crossing it in these weeks to verify the trail and create awareness among the local communities.En savoir plus
